Had dinner here a few nights ago. Food was lovely but the great service provided by Rohid made the evening memorable. Great service goes a long way.

I visited Ristorante Taverna Al Paladino last night. The reason why I decided this is that I came across this restaurant during my stroll during the day and I felt something special and I came across this restaurant in Trip Advisor later. The restaurant has its name "restorante" but it didn't seem to be formal and it is more like... More

This wasn't our first choice but ended up here because we were hungry & the menu looked ok. What we didn't realize is that they had a choice of 4/5 specials too; of which my husband enjoyed the Grouper ravioli. Our only criticism is that it's obvious they are used to turning tables very quickly. We were given breads, just... More

We came here on a Wednesday night and luckily saw an empty table immediately. We had fantastic food, prosecco and service all whist the street band played, adding to the atmosphere of it all. Highly recommend it here

We stayed in Taormina for 2 weeks in August 2014 and this was our favourite restaurant. We visited it several times for lunch and for dinner, and each time, we were so taken by the friendly service and the excellent food. Tuna carpaccio as a starter was out of this world, and the pasta with scampi was wonderful (the scampi... More

A nice looking place just off the main street. Pleasant staff and a typical sicilian menu. Unfortunately the food did not measure up - the bruschetta was very hard and almost inedible for my wife. My anchovies were ok but no cooking involved and the main course of tuna looked very unappetising. My main issue with this place was the... More

This charming family run restaurant is a must if like me – you’re a good cook, appreciate good quality food and happen to be half Italian! We ate here 4 times out of the 7 nights we were in Taormina. We liked the look of the place - quite intimate inside and upon entering were met by the husband who... More

Stayed in Taormina for 7 nights and ate here for 4. On each occasion the food and service were perfect, the shrimp in lemon leaves a particular favourite as well as the homemade tiramisu. Once visited you will want to return, so don't leave it to your last night.

We ordered the macaroni with aubergine and tomato and the ravioli with pistachio. Both we were exactly what we were looking for; very simple, fresh and homemade.
