I never dive straight into the first restaurant I see, but having got the cable car up to Taormina we were starving and dived into the first restaurant we found...what a fabulous find this restaurant was! Ok, so it's not the cheapest, but the food is of a very high quality. The extremely friendly staff make everything just perfect. From... More

L'Incontro was recommended to us by the charming guide we had on an excursion during our stay. We were not disappointed - exceptional service and gorgeous food in this intimate restaurant passionate about local produce. Every guest is welcomed warmly (we felt like celebs when we went back a second time and were instantly recognised!) Genuinely a fabulous experience to... More

Our hotel, Villa Angela, recommended this little gem of a restaurant to us. We couldn't find it at first, but we are sooo glad we didn't give up. The owner was waiting our table, and nothing was out of the question. The fish was delicious! Antonio may even be a distant relative. His moms family has the same last name... More

We were received by the owners, very well educated people. Menu was really authentic, no bolognese lasagna or other dishes out from Sicily. Cozy environment and delicious food, we do recommend this restaurant

We visited twice and had the pleasure of Debbie, Antonio and Eleanor, the Italian, the English and the Scot. A small intimate restaurant filled with smiles and bon homie. The window seats are the pick here, and don't be scared to ask for variations on the menu, Antonio is a can do guy. I also like when you ask for... More

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
