Excellent!

Nice place behind the loudy main street. It is very cosy and nice. You should visit this place to eat a great pizza in a nice atmosphere.

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.

Had our final meal of the holiday here and pizza was excellent and so was the red wine. Location is great being just off the main high street so quieter but still with a good atmosphere.

I am leaving this review in English (although I am Italian) because I want other non-Italian tourists to understand the problem with this place. The setting is nice. Away from the noise. That is why I am giving it 1 star. The food was just awful. We had the siciliano and norma pizza. They were just ok. The worst part... More

Came here last night, wasn't confident at first, was pointed in the vicinity of upstairs. Walked up, made our own way to the table. Humourless waitress gave us menu's. About 10 minutes later came and took our orders, house white wine arrived at room temperature. Asked for ice to put in our glasses. We were seated by the upstairs toilet... More
