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

Positively the best Sicilian fare we had. Absolutely outstanding cooking for all courses with the chef kindly giving us some extra side dishes. All round a fabulous evening and heartily recommended.

This is a small, authentic family-run restaurant just outside the gate to the town, on the same road as the Villa Carlotta. It is casual and friendly without any presumptions. One does not come here for a view; one comes here because the food is delicious. Unfortunately, the 4 of us discovered this place on our last day. otherwise, we... More

I had macaroni Norma, grilled vegetables, water, and house wine for 33 Euros. The house white is outstanding value. Service is good. The night I visited there were several loud groups but the restaurant is large enough that it was not a problem. Definitely recommended.
