This is the only place on which we had lunch in Taormina and it was great. Service was kind, the food really nice and it was not expensive (22€ per person aprox). Good value for money.

We went here on our first evening. It was not a nice meal. Would not recommend it. Service was lacking and the food was poor.

If Pizzas are your thing then I thoroughly recommend Malvasia. Service is attentive and quite laid-back, situated on a main side street just before you enter the throbbing main street so traffic passing is fairly constant however this is reflected in surprisingly low prices that make this a value for money Gold star.

We ended up at this restaurant on our first evening in Taormina by sheer luck. We intended on going to another restaurant but hadn't reserved and they were full. We walked around in search of another restaurant and decided to try this one. We ate very well, the food was great! We loved it so much that the night before... More

The food wasn't bad but nothing special either the same for the service. They didn't pay too much of attention

My sister had visited here from Australia a few months ago and recommended that we try the restaurant even though it is a little off the main restaurant strip. We called around 6.30pm to find out what time it opened and found it that it was already open; so we booked for 7pm. Whilst we the first to be seated... More

Restaurant is well situated in the more quiet part of corso umberto, near porta catania. We had swordfish, which was good but quite simple.

Here for lunch today. Only customers. The restaurant is not on the main thoroughfare. We ordered swordfish which was fresh in today. Was lovely. Decent unpretentious place to go, other restaurants have better views but would eat here again
