We visited shelter restaurant several times and all dishes were really delicious. Especially I liked gnocchi with shrimps. Price is not expensive and staff is very friendly. I definitely recommend it.

Would highly recommend. This place is very relaxed and not too expensive. The food is great and the staff are not standing over your shoulder.

Being used to Irish food, some of the menus scared me, but here was just perfect and relaxed and so very well priced. Was probably our cheapest dinner and one of the most enjoyable.

Shelter is the place to go for a delicious pizza (or any other Sicilian speciality you may fancy!) especially on a hot lunchtime. This is a cool haven (outdoor terrace) away from the hustle and bustle of the main corso of Taormina. The service from Luciano and the rest of the staff is just what we look for - attentive... More

Rather a pushy area of town, with everyone touting for business. This restaurant was doing the same! We succumbed because of the large outdoor seated area, which had a lovely buzz about it. Probably not a place for a quiet romantic mean!! Like many places in the centre, we were greeted with free prosecco and bruchetta. We then had just... More

We eat here twice as the food and service was excellent. We were unsure at to which drink to have and received tasters which enabled us to make the decision which was a great idea. The food was of high quality - we had pizza on first visit and risotto and pasta on second visit, we were not rushed in... More
