Great

Great pizza/calzone but the other dishes were just okay. It's a little bit hidden but worth the extra few stairs.

Very nice little restaurant located just off the main street, in a nice little residential area. We finally had a proper nice Italian pizza, after a couple of disappointment in other places.

We came across this restaurant because of some local's recommendation. Although the weather was terrible and there were barely any customers inside, the staff was not interested at all in our arrival, they even did not tell us goodbye when we left, may be some of them were too busy with their smartphones. In Sicily you pay 2 or 2,5... More

We were greeted by friendly staff. The food was very good and it was very nice sitting outside. The price was reasonable. Over all, a good restaurant.

The location was a little bit of the Main Street, food was simple but authentic pizza and pasta with lovely salads. Our kids loved it as much as we did. The staff were welcoming and accommodating and the buildings surrounding were beautiful. Outside dining a must!

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from someone who lives in Taormina. The food was really tasty and the prices significantly more reasonable than the rest of Taormina. Definitely the place to go for dinner.

This place has an amazing setting - by day a little street above Corso Umberto I and by night a lovely courtyard setting for open air dining. The fish and meat courses are excellent and one evening we tried the pizzas which were equally great.

From our B&B we had to climb the stairs and found this quite Pizzeria with tables on the street. Most of our family ordered the Pizza which worked out well. My wife had the Veal with mushrooms and I had the Veal with Lemons. Everything went well.
