Visiting Taormina for the day we wanted to find somewhere a bit off the well trodden main street for an early evening meal before getting the bus back to Catania. We spotted the sign for this restaurant and followed a narrow street up some steps and into a quiet but smart little square. Clearly we were too early (around 6pm)... More

We were so pleased to have found this place only regret was that we hadn't found it sooner. Lovely rustic food , tasty and freshly made. Nice welcome from waiters (think they are brothers) and the lovely waitress with the spectacles ( the other waitress very frosty, almost rude). We had pizza and lovely chocolate buns with gooey centre mmmmmm,... More

Hard restaurant to find unless you have an idea where it is. Pizza and pasta main courses which we mixed and matched were lovely and extremely tasty. Bottle of local beer was out of date by a few weeks but that didn't bother me as it was very nice! Only issue was one of the waittesses was extremely rude. Not... More

We stayed in Taormina this month and asked at a bar where was a nice place to eat. Once we had found this place we kept going back, on the two occasions we ate elsewhere we regretted it as the food was no where near as good. It is a family business they speak great English the house wine is... More

Had a rather tasty pizza/salad lunch here - nice tasty food, freshly prepared. House wine good too. There's number of tables outside in a square tucked above the main Corso Umberto street lovely, peaceful location.

The pizza was right up there with the best I've had. Its was stone oven baked and very tasty. Only problem was there was too much!! The house wine was delicious too. Nice setting and ambience outside. Cheap eat but top quality.

This is a lovely little restaurant which specialises in pizza. Its location is just off the main road and up some stairs. There you can find a little out of the way area (a haven) with a more than adequate selection of Italian food. We (my wife and I) ate here on two occasions, first having a pizza each which... More

A hidden gem! Very good and fast service... The pizzas were delicious! Thin crust and perfectly baked. Recommended!

The pizzas here are very nice and very reasonably priced. They are perfectly cooked and not overdone and dry like other touristy restaurants. It would've been perfect if we didnt have to endure screaming kids who were celebrating a birthday party. Nevertheless, we will definately be eating here again during our stay in Taormina.

We ate here twice as the food was excellent, the staff were friendly and we were not hassled to have the always expensive fish of the day as in other restaurants. It is set in a quiet courtyard off the Corso and the clientele were mainly Italian - a good sign!
