It's very busy and popular, so try to go early before the rush. The reward is freshly cooked pasta and lovely service. Highly recommended for a decent lunch or dinner in a relaxed setting.

There are so many of these restaurants in town but this had great pizzas with some more unusual toppings salmon & lemon for example , a good wine list & lots of friendly staff, we sat inside but there was a fun atmosphere outside & overall it was reasonably priced

We discovered this place by chance just off the main street, and we were so happy we did. The food was truly first class and presented so professionally. The staff were so friendly and professional. We returned to eat there several times and they seemed genuinely pleased to see us. I would highly recommend this restaurant for afternoon or evening... More

I wish we had found this restaurant earlier in our holiday since we would have certainly gone back. It was small but bustling and the service was excellent. We had lovely smoked fish and linguine al nero di seppia. People near us were eating pizza which also looked great

Good food and ditto wine - very good service who know a lot about wines - small terrace outside - just try the swordfish rolls (real Sicilian dish) - we will come back - thats why the street name in the title - original name Shelter! Top!

Taormina is not short of places to eat - some are too fancy, others too slow, some are way overpriced. Some are just the right mix of good food, good service and reasonable prices. Shelter is one of these. Just off the main tourist drag (30 seconds down a narrow alley), it has a couple of dining rooms and a... More

We ate in Shelter restaurant for dinner on the last day of our holiday. It was the best meal that we had in Taormina by far - and there was stiff competition! Its easy to find - just off a side road from the Corso Umberto. A bit pricey (husband had steak for about €26) but it was worth it... More
