This is by far the best restaurant around, amazing chef and amazing staff! It gets booked up most nights so book a table!

We were in Taormina for four nights and our night at L'Incontro was the best! The owner and his wife are such warm welcoming people that you immediately feel comfortable and special. My husband and I shared the mussels dish as our appetizer--delicious! Then I had the sea bass and my husband had the seafood risotto-both outstanding. In a tourist... More

Fantastic restaurant with great service and outstanding food. The swordfish was the best I have ever eaten. The owner is cordial and makes you feel at home.

Four of us stayed in Taormina for a week and we visited this lovely restaurant three times, once for lunch and twice in the evening. We were never disappointed in the food or the service. The fish especially is delicious and beautifully prepared as are all their dishes. The owners are attentive and friendly without being intrusive and the rest... More

I'll start by saying the staff is very friendly and the owner (one of them Antonio, I think) is very involved in this restaurant. After that, I must diverge from what other people said about the food at this place. The best dish we had was the caponata appetizer which was bright and delicious. My dining partner and I both...

We chose this place for our last night in Taormina based on reviews. The restaurant was very ordinary with no views and the food was OK, but unexceptional. I had the recommended fish ravioli which was bland with bizarre notes of anise. The service was attentive, but the evening we were there a loud American couple was chatting up everyone... More

Thank you for your review. We try to make everyone welcome & give the best dining experience possible, however we have no control on how guests conduct themselves & therefore if someone is loud (but not abusive) there is little we can do. You should have asked to change tables as the night you dined with us there were tables... More

Well what can I say, amazing service, incredible food and a lovely atmosphere. We went here on our last night in Taormina due to tripadvisor recommendations and it surpassed all of the good reviews! This was easily the best meal we have had during our entire trip. The food was freshly prepared and tasted home cooked, as if we were... More

Most of the restaurants he have very similar menus. What sets this one above the others is the quality of the ingredients and the preparation of the dishes. The staff are also very friendly. The price is similar to other restaurants in town but the quality is far higher.
