We had the seafood pastas and we loved it. The dessert - semifreddo pistachio was good too. The price is very good in this setting and the quality of the food. The two pastas we had were at 14e and 11e. Staff are friendly and service is good. Tip: go early or reserve a table. It's full at 8:30pm tonight.

This small trattoria is located in an area away from the crowds that invade Taormina during the weekend. There are a few other restaurants in the area worth trying, but the service here was absolutely outstanding and the food was really good. For those looking for something new, give a go to their Tuna with chocolate and sweet onions -... More

On arriving in Sicily,we asked our very friendly and informative taxi driver,Fabio, for advice on good ,authentic Sicilian restaurants in Taormina....What a wonderful experience this choice was! Our hosts gave us a table outside with a view over the cobbled street and upwards to the illuminated castle - this set the scene for two evenings of gastronomic delight and romance!... More

All a very high standard. Friendly staff. Good local wine. A very nicce place to eat. Reasonable prices. Again it is proof that you can eat... More

If you ever visit Taormina do not miss this restaurant. Of the week days spent in Taormina pasta in this restaurant we were most impressed. Although we have seen a better location, with delicious food and fantastic service we were so happy that we came back for dinner twice again. I have not eaten better pasta anywhere, and at Don...

Loved sitting outside. Loved the homemade gnocchi although wish it had a stronger Pesto flavor. My husband had a delicious Sicilian fish dish with breaded shrimp. The antipasto plate with seafood was not memorable. It was fun; reasonable and go for the homemade pastas.

We went based on advice from trip advisor and we weren't disappointed! On arrival we received a complimentary champagne and bruschetta each which was a great touch. We then experienced fantastic service and some of the best gnocchi and ravioli we've ever had. Highly recommended.

Went here twice during our recent trip, had been recommended previous year by Hotel Taodomus - it's a nice little place with good food including fresh fish and some nice pasta dishes - home cooking. Good menu and nice wines at a reasonable price. What we liked is that they have 3-4 tables outside in the courtyard which is a... More
