What a fantastic town Taormina is. So unexpected. Full of restaurants and pizzerias for the masses of tourists that flock to this wonderful destination. After a couple of hours of walking around we were ready for our meal. We didn't want the full deal, so opted for a pizza and found this wonderful pizzeria in one of the side streets.... More

Great food with reasonable prices. We ate lunch here on the terrace and enjoyed very moment. They also have a wine tasting bar attached to the restaurant if you want to taste and buy wine, limoncello, or olive oil. Order the house wine for the best deal 1L for €12.

We stumbled across this restaurant after leaving another next door!! Great atmosphere, great service and good value for money for Taormina. The fish antipasti was particularly special.

Lovely little Restaurant in a small alleyway in Taormina, you'd miss it if they didn't stand at the alley entrance lol Great Pizza, good wine selection and good value for money even in this somewhat expensive tourist overrun town. Would definitely go back 😊

Trying new places when on vacation is always fun, but sometimes when you find something good, you have to return, which is exactly what we did at the Shelter. Shelter was recommended by our hotel concierge as one the better places for pizza in Taormina. We arrived and were promptly seated. The wait staff was attentive and prompt, but not... More

This is the only restaurant we chose to return to during our week in Taormina. First visit I had sea food risotto which was delicious, generous & fresh & boyfriend had lamb chops - well seasoned & tasty. We were pleasantly surprised by the bill too - not too pricey for the quality. On return I had the capricosa pizza... More

Very cozy and comfortable restaurant! Maybe the best one in Taormina. The food is very tasty and the service is very good and of a high quality. We were there several times in September 2014. All these times we were served by Luciano who is very polite and nice guy. From the food I will definitely recommend to taste special... More

We ate in shelter on our last night in taormina, it's a pity we only discovered it on our last night. Food and the service is exquisite. We will be back on our next visit.

Just returned from our second visit to this amazing restaurant. Food is delicious, well priced and freshly cooked served with a smile. We've had gnocchi, pasta, seafood and meat(chicken and beef) and everything was absolutely delicious and beautifully cooked. Wonderful tiramisu and pistachio cake for dessert and a complimentary glass of lemoncello to finish off!!! Wonderful family-run restaurant, wonderful food... More
