Run by a charming couple this is a great little restaurant. We had lunch and dinner here. We did need to book for dinner. The food is tasty and inexpensive with a real local feel. The wine menu looked complicated but they were happy to recommend and in fact picked the least expensive wine saying there was no need to... More

The pastas here sing. The swordfish involintini rolled with sundries tomatoes was fantastic. Service was professional and personable. A+ in a town with many touristy joints.

Our hotel recommended L'Incontro to us when we told them we wanted a relatively inexpensive meal with good food and atmosphere. L'Incontro more than ticked every box - the food was really tasty and was typical Sicilian fayre. Service was friendly and imformative and the bill was extremely cheap for such high quality. Highly recommend.

We were a group of four, really enjoyed the food (don't miss the stuffed sardines, amazing) the atmosphere and the fantastic couple that run it, make this place a must when having a night out in Taormina.

Unassuming from the outside & certainly unpretentious within, what makes this restaurant special is the superb cooking & delightful husband & wife hosts.We recommend sitting on the terrace to enjoy the night air on warm evenings - but important to book ahead to get this spot as this is a very popular restaurant & rightly so. Do try the amazing... More

From the outside this doesn't look great but is obviously very popular, we managed to get a table without booking. Menu is very good and so are the staff, very helpful husband and wife team. More expensive than many restaurants but better than many.

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay, very nice staff, nice terrace keeping things a bit cooler and great food and wine, the ravioli dish is genuinely delicious, as is the fish soup but be warned only have the soup if you are very hungry, it's a huge meal!

So glad we tried this restaurant, which is close to the Porta Messina. Try the grilled prawns or the meatballs. Slightly more expensive then some other restaurants in Taormina, but completely worth it.

A lovely little restaurant where the staff treat you like friends - very privileged friends, as the food is excellent. The owner and his waiting staff seem to really enjoy serving the customers so the atmosphere is fun and friendly, from the moment you walk in until you leave. They are happy to advise on choice of food and wine... More
