The restaurant is set in one of the most beautiful place in Taormina, facing the famous bay of Isola Bella. Lina runs the restaurant perfectly. She is the perfect host!

Just been for dinner tonight, and right from the time we arrived it all felt wrong. The building looked like a fake, more like a film set. The food was slow, and me being a vegetarian, was offered just one choice from the menu, after the waiter said he would talk to the chef! Both of mine were tasteless, my... More

We had a good meal here on Wednesday night. We had lovely dishes. However, we think this restaurant is over priced for the food. We have been so many restaurants where the food is better than here. Service is very welcoming, but not fully attentive. The bread and cookies there are really good. It's just so delicious. Food is good,... More

The view, atmosphere, expertise, wine, service and beautiful interior. It's a must for these things alone, never mind the food. Which was also exceptional! We have only just sorted out a trip advisor account and although we visited 3 months ago we felt it was very important we shared our experience. We saved this until our last night for a... More

Can't fault anything with our meal - we were thoroughly spoilt! Quite a lot of seafood on the menu and pricy, but absolutely worth it...

Second only to La Capinera in Taormina, this meal was truly excellent. Service was lackadaisical but the food was good. If you are dining on a nice day at lunch, the terrace and view are great. They have a good chef but front of house needs to improve service.

An exquisite outside dinner at a medieval mansion in touristic Taormina. We ordered the 5 course Taste of Sicily menu. The dishes were excellent: fresh ingredients, great taste! A menu to recommend. So why didn't I give 5 stars? Well the service could be better. Maybe I am too demanding, but when the waitress serves us a new red wine... More

Great meal, great view. Deserves it's high rating. Staff attentive and on hand to answer questions and make recommendations. I had a sea bass main which was succulent and flavoursome. Worth a visit, but not on the main drag.
