Our hotel has provided recommendations but it is a wet night and we choose somewhere close by. Our party of 6 is accommodated with some table juggling and they obligingly provide us with a complimentary chick pea ravioli after we have ordered 2 ravioli specials to share for the entree followed by individual mains (with tuna being favoured) and caponata...

We had the best meal in Taormina here. This is unassuming from the outside, but pristine inside, and you know you are in for a fine dining experience. The waiters are excellently informed and give brilliant advice on menu and wine pairings. The specials were exquisite. I had a lobster filled ravioli which was exquisite. My husband had a past...

Restaurant was recommended by Martin, the concierge at Vill St Andrea and what a find. Mum cooks the local specialties in the kitchen whilst her son runs front of house in a very efficient manner. We were glad we booked as the restaurant was full, mostly of locals! On Martin's recommendation we went for the antipasto to start with which... More

Our travel rep recommended Malvasia as "the best steaks in Taormina" so we had to give it a go. It was raining that evening so we were lucky to get there early enough to get a table inside. I had a very enjoyable dish of strips of beef steak - delicious. My wife had a generous schnitzel - als delicious.... More

From the outside, this place does not look like much but the food and service are actually very good! We had lunch there just today with delicious fried squid as a starter, ravioli stuffed with lobster and prawns and spaghetti with olive oil, garlic and chili. A simple but special place that we would definitely recommend!

My wife and I decided to dine at Malvasia on our last night in Sicily, looking for good pasta dishes. We started off with an appetizer of Bruschetta. We then ordered the Ravioli Crostac (with lobster and shrimp) in a Vodka sauce and Macaroni pasta with tomato sauce and vegetables. The food melted in our mouth. We enjoyed the meals... More

The food was excellent & very delicious! The service was very fast & efficient even though the restaurant was quite full of people. We received fried ravioli filled with chick peas compliments to the chef which were very tasty! The waiters were extremely helpful and when we asked them for a type of wine which they didn't know if they... More

We ate here on our first night in Taormina and it provided a good introduction. The Sicilian dish pasta alla Norma was very tasty and the house red was good too. The staff were friendly and not too intrusive. We sat outside and had a lovely romantic meal.
