Group of us had a very nice meal at L'Incontro on our last night in Taormina. As we found the seafood in Sicily to be too strong and not to our liking it was nice to have a menu that had some great non-seafood options. All the food was fresh and flavorsome, I had the meatballs baked in lemon leaves... More

Our visit to L'Incontro was pleasant my wife's macaroni was very average, I had the risotto which was nice, at times we felt slightly ignored. I'm not sure if there was any air conditioning in the restaurant as it was quite hot and stuffy. Overall we found this restaurant to be slightly above average.

We took pasta (maccheroni di casa alla Siciliana) and mixed fried fish (marinata di pesce misto) for starters. Mixed fish obviously meant octopus, small fish (and some vegetables) warmed in a microwave. I literally watched how the chef put my ready made mixed fish plate to micro wave, took it out for putting his finger in to my food just... More

A lovely restaurant with exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. The food was good with a wide choice and puddings were home made. The staff have an air of enjoying their job and were eager to ensure the guests were having a good meal. It felt very relaxing here and a fun atmosphere, professionally managed and skilfully presented.

On a return visit, having first eaten there 3 years ago, we again found the welcome to be warm, the service friendly and efficient and the local food very good. In particular the home-made pasta is excellent. Allow yourself to be advised about the menu and guided through the excellent Sicilian wine list and you should have a most enjoyable... More

Several recommendations including Angelo our driver for a day. One of the best meals on our trip and service was excellent as well. The owner really makes you feel appreciated. We all had something different and absolutely no complaints from anyone. Will recommend it to anyone in the area.

We came here on the recommendation of our hotel, Carlotta, and can confirm it serves up delicious Sicilian food and wines at very reasonable prices. We had the antipasto with verdure & seafood which was lovely to look at and even better to eat. We followed this with the maccaroni with salsicce and wild fennel. The pasta was homemade and... More

We followed previous travelers recommendations and chose this place for dinner. We were greeted by every employee we walked by, seated next to a window with a pleasant view, and attended by the owner and made to feel like special people. The menu is varied and appealing. The food was excellent. The place is busy and very serviceable but the... More
