Very friendly and great food

We dined here on our first night in Taormina. The service and hosts were exceptionally friendly. And the food amazing. The involtini are a must-order as are the desserts. A great meal and experience! Enough vegetarian options so that's not an issue either. Not touristy, which is another big plus.

We were greeted in a friendly manner by the hostess and seated in the dining room in the back which had large windows and an open feeling. We had never had squid ink pasta before and wanted to try it. When we mentioned that to the manager, who'd come to discuss the menu with us, he said that if we... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend, and it was all it was cracked up to be and more! Since it is off the main street it is quieter and away from a lot of the tourist traps in the centre of Taormina.

A simple but charming restaurant serving great authentic Sicilian food. The stand out item was the selection of marinated fish as a starter. Absolutely delicious. Well worth a visit.

Our hotel proprietor recommended this place to us, based on us being limited in how far we could walk from the hotel. We had a good meal and the price was reasonable. It did get hot inside the restaurant though because the kitchen is an integral part of it.
