On the main drag

Clean, quite, friendly restaurant on the main drag in Taormina. Place setting nice and attractive. Service prompt, helpful and polite. In Sicily, seafood is the best especially in a seaside town (a little up the hill) Taormina. I began with a Caprese Salad with absolutely fresh Mozzarella and... read more

The sea bass was excellent on our first visit that we returned a few days letter for more. The Sicilian mixed starter was also very good. We were made to feel very welcome, only a few steps away from the bustle of Corso Umberto.

My wife and I had read about the Ristorante La Griglia and that the owner was very kind to his customers. We were looking for a late lunch in Taormina when we saw it and asked if they could fit us in. It was the end of the lunch sitting so they were closing up. However, they obliged and we... More

Our amphitheater tour guide recommended this restaurant to us for lunch, and we were extremely pleased. The service was on point. The food was very, very good. In the Sicilian tradition, I had pasta con la sarde, and it was fabulous. The restaurant is warm, friendly, clean and nicely decorated. It is an easily accessible location, on Corso Umberto (main...

Our property manager made reservations for us and we had an absolutely wonderful meal, start to finish From the Anti-Pasto to dessert, great bottles of wine, and superb main dishes. We would absolutely return. Staff was very friendly!

We went to this restaurant one very wet and windy night because it was next to our hotel. The food was exquisite and the service faultless. The wine list was very good and after talking to our waiter we chose local wines, which we were impressed with. The deserts were amazing and the orange crepe was out of this world.... More

Great service, wonderful food. They didn't have the wine we wanted but suggested a wine which was €9 cheaper and which was delicious.

Four of us ate in this restaurant, liked the food, and even decided to eat there again on the following Wednesday evening, but unfortunately it was closed. We had various dishes, as there was a reasonable choice, and found the prices moderate relative to the location. The staff were very friendly, and as Pinot Grigio is not a Sicilian grape,... More

The fish we ordered was perfectly cooked and was complemented by a lovely local white wine the waiter recommended. Given the location the final bill was pretty reasonable.

We ate here since it looked like it would have a variety of nice dishes to choose from... how wrong I was. I ordered swordfish, which was far from any other experience of this dish I have had before, or even at other establishments in Taormina. Before any of our food arrived we were presented with dishes that we did... More
