The restaurant to go to in Taormina

My wife and I spent a couple of days in Taormina over the Easter and we ate on two occasions at L'Incontro. Both the food and the service were without fault. We will go there again any time we will return to Taormina.

We visited this restaurant following Tripadvisor reviews. We like it so much that we ate dinner here twice even though we had already paid for half board in our hotel (and the hotel food wasn't bad). It would be easy to overlook this restaurant in passing as it isn't off the Corsa Umberto and, from the outside, it isn't huge... More

Friendly staff were very welcoming. I had the ravioli which was really tasty however my partner wasn't impressed with hers as it was fairly bland. I'm sure the other reviews are spot on, it's just our experience was good but not amazing. Still worth a visit in my opinion.

We went to this restaurant without a booking and were lucky to be given the last non-reserved table. The welcome was very friendly but there was quite a long wait to order and then again for the first course to arrive. First courses - two pasta and one risotto - proved very popular. Main courses were a bit of a... More

Friendly and chatty owner (told us his wife is English) and great food. Lovely seafood dishes and very acceptable house wines. Carafes of 50cls which suits us as a bottle is too much and a glass too little when one of you drinks red and the other white! complimentary local orange (?!) liqueur at the end of the meal. Very...

I chose this restaurant because I saw that I had a good tripadvisor rating. When I went in to book for a large group of 10-15 people they immediately made me feel relaxed and welcome. Everyone in the group was happy with the quality of the food and the service. After we had settled the bill they offered those of... More

On our second last night in Taormina we found this delightful restaurant. It is such a relaxed place and the staff were brilliant. The seafood is excellent (and so too the steak). We returned for our final meal. Superb

By far the best restaurant we ate in Taormina. Very genuine food and is a must go if you are visiting the town. Very friendly and English speaking staff...we were truly impressed! Pity we found this little gem on our last day but we will definitely return. Highly recommended!
