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

It has the full range of pasta dishes, meat dishes and pizza something for everyone! Well priced , great atmosphere , outside terrace was really lovely , staff were professional and not pushy or constantly standing over you, just the right amount of attention! Pizza is good here at only €8 for fresh base and toppings , it would be... 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

Best meal with excellent service and the extra little touches, free glass of bubbly, bruchette and glass of Limoncello to finish just perfect

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

We ate out almost every night and both agreed that the meal we had at Shelter was the best we had had all holiday and remained that way until the end of our holiday. We made a point of... More

My wife and I stopped here by chance one afternoon while we were in Taormina for lunch and we were so impressed with it that we came back the next night for dinner. Lunch was very good. We shared a misto salad and a pizza along with some very good house wine. Dinner the next night was even better. They... More

Had a pizza and a salad here - very friendly service, quick and efficient. Nice location away from the crowded streets under a canopy, amongst other restaurants. Lovely crisp pizza base and tasty topping, and great salads. The menu is very much the same as lots of others, but the food here is very fresh and the service is great.

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant situated in one of the terraced vicoli just off the main street. My wife had a a spaghetti carbonara which was excellent, I had a spaghetti marinara with the right amount of fresh seafood and they catered for a mini pizza for our 3 yr old. We also enjoyed the live entertainment by... More
