Saw the reviews for this on Trip Advisor and visited twice. We loved it. We were seated in the balcony area with a super view and the ambience and food were excellent. The owner and his English wife are delightful, so welcoming and friendly. Since we were drinking white wine on both our visits the owner insisted we try a... More

Very tasty food, served with a smile at reasonable prices - what more could you ask for. They have a few tables at the rear of the restaurant on a covered terrace and it is worth booking in advance if you want to sit outside. My seafood ravioli was the best I have ever tasted and my partner's swordfish was... More

My husband and I spent 6 days in Taormina. Our first night we were lucky enough to have booked dinner at L'Incontro. The food was amazing for both of us, but what was even more amazing was the owner Antonino who spent time talking with us as friends. Daniela who was our waitress was just as amazing couldn't do enough... More

The food and service was very good and the restaurant has a good view. The staff speak very good English and were welcoming and we enjoyed our meal. It would have been good to know that each meal came with potatoes as we ordered sides of potatoes which we didn't need and couldn't eat as each meal was sufficient. The... More

Really lovely restaurant! Food is delicious due to the sourcing of fresh local produce and this is very evident in the flavoursome dishes! It's reassuring to see the open kitchen plus the aromas get the senses ready for the feast ahead! Debbie & all the staff couldn't have been more welcoming to us when we arrived without a reservation (... More

Our group of five dined at L'Incontro twice during our recent five-night stay in Taormina. Not that we didn't have options: Taormina is full of lovely, appealing dining establishments focusing on the bounty of the local sea. But L'Incontro is special, mainly because of its extremely hospitable staff and simple, superb cuisine. Co-owners Antonino and chef Antonio make you feel... More

Great gnocchi with pistachio sauce (memorable!) and pasta with squid ink (delicious). Extremely nice attendants and owners.

Tony and his team are very welcoming, attentive and friendly in this typical Sicilian restaurant which is well worth a visit. Do request a table outside at the back of the restaurant and enjoy the antipasti, pasta, vegetables which are all delicious and well-presented. The gnocchi with pistachio and prawns is highly recommended but go there hungry!! This restaurant is... More
