I would give L'incontro 3.5 stars if half stars were possible. The owner, Antonio, is a sweet man who goes out of his way to make you feel welcomed. The restaurant has a casual yet elegant look - perfect for its sunny, seaside location. I had the Polipo Luciana (sautéed octopus) and Pasta All'Incontro (signature pasta dish with tomato almond...

We went here yesterday on recommendation from our Hotel Villa Carlotta, and it was perfect for our family. We came as the first guests for the evening, and that was nice as we got super service . Food was fantastic and we got caponata, caprese, pasta, chicken and grilled fish. You must also try the desserts, they are so good.... More

We ate here after looking up some reviews online. Not disappointed. The proprietor made the kids feel very welcome and was very flexible with kid friendly meal options. We enjoyed one of the best meals we have had in Sicily. Fabulous Mt Etna wine and a selection of local specialities made for a great night out. Highly recommended!

I had read the reviews like the rest of you folks. The reason this restaurant gets a "5" is because of everything overall. From the welcome to our goodbye, it was a great experience. We had the caprese to start with bread, that was great. Crunchy and the outside and not overly moist or even dried out, just hearty. I... More

Antonio was a delightful host and even he was surprised by the end of our meal when the bride offered us her wedding cake. Yes, we were Sicilian wedding crashers...and luckily we choose a great dining spot with views of the sea, sauteed octopus and meatballs cooked in lemon leaves. We dined at many places while staying in Taormina but... More

Cam here a couple of times and it was quiet (although we are early eaters). Found the owner and staff really friendly. The food was very tasty but as with most food in Taormina is on the expensive side. Meal for 3 with a shared starter and limited drinks will set you back around €30 per person.

We were looking for a taste of the local cuisine without the tourist trappings in Taormna. We just stumbled upon L'Incontro walking through the streets of Taormina. While not overly impressive on the outside we took a chance and entered without a reservation. Our good fortune was a last minute cancellation for a great table on the outside terrace with... More

Our Maitre'd, Tony, was wonderful. He made us feel at home and, for all intents and purposes, the menu was "optional" because they would virtually cook to order. My wife and I had a quiet Saturday night off-season dinner there. The dining area could have had better lighting on a dark evening, but the open-air feel of the outside dining... More

Finding a really good, reasonably priced restaurant in a busy tourist location is rare. L'Incontoro fits the bill nicely. A very friendly, but not pushy welcome awaits you upon your arrival and our waitress, Debbie found time to explain aspects of the menu which were new to our untutored tastes. L'Incontoro prides itself on the quality of its local cooking... More
