Beautiful setting in a cobbled street and a varied menu

We visited this restaurant twice during our week in Taormina and both times had a beautiful meal served by the lovely Alberto (whose English was great!).... lovely fresh ingredients amidst a relaxed, yet buzzy atmosphere.

We went here on the first night of our holiday and were unable to top it. There is no view from here but it is perfect for people watching. We had the Sea Bass and a recommended Rose wine. The service was great and everything with the food was lovely. With hindsight I would have gone there again.

The restaurant's service is fine (especially Alberto) and the food was fine as well. However, my choice through Trip Advisor was based on the fact it is listed as Greek Cusine in addition to Italian while nothing in the menu was greek. So it is fine if you are interested in Italian but not Greek. The listing of cusine type... More

Went for dinner on first night as it was near to our hotel. Really enjoyed the food and the service was good as well. Prices about normal for Taormina. Try the Sea Bass in white wine..it's really good.

Great food the best in Taormina ! we ate out every night and visited this three times during our ten day visit. The kids just wanted to return for the atmosphere and setting and friendly staff... but most of all the food.

We decided to try this restaurant as the recent TA reviews were very good - and we are pleased we did. We were seated outside which was lovely as we could people watch in-between courses. The restaurant is located in a little side street that is not too busy but just enough to give it some ambience. The pasta was... More

Tucked away among a clutter of restaurants this was recommended by the hotel. The layout is super but unfortunately it was too windy to sit outside, inside was fine as was the service and drinks.
