We went to Taormina July 2014 for our honeymoon. We stayed at Villa Carlotta (brilliant!) and they recommended this restaurant. The food and the service were both excellent. But this little tale goes further than that... I left a bag with a few belongings (camera etc) in the restaurant and didn't notice until the next day. A couple of bottles... More

Walked by this place for a few days on our way from the Sirus hotel to the town centre. The menu looked interesting and it was clearly a very popular restaurant. We called in one night on the off chance - our lucky night as just one table was available. Without doubt this was the best meal we had during... More

Went there on last night of our holiday at recommendation of the hotel. Lovely food and a different menu to th standard Taormina fare. Service and recommendations from this owner run place were great. When the wine recommendation is one of the cheapest on the list you just know you are getting good service. Thoroughly recommend

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel - and probably the best recommendation we got during our stay in Sicily. This restaurant is about great food, excellent service, non-pretentious staff and a decent wine list. Without naming a list of dishes, we ate both pasta and meat dishes during our visits to the restaurants - fresh produce and the flavours... More

Was taken here by our tour guide and it was a wonderful place for lunch. Locally owned and the service was very good. Owner's daughter spoke very good English and they had some wonderful local dishes. Prices were very reasonable and the view was to die for. Every thing our group had was well prepared and very fresh. Would go... More

You cannot go to Taormina without visiting this restaurant. We went twice. The parmigiana Melanzane is exquisite. The swordfish involtini are amazing. The vine was superb. The owners make you feel very at home. In the autumn ask for a table inside.

One of my favourite meals in Sicily, my boyfriend and I were both in heaven here - me on account of the spaghetti aglio olio e pepperoncino which was divine, my boyfriend on account of our charming waitress who appears to be the long lost Sicilian twin sister of Mila Kunis. Do book and visit this restaurant if you are... More
