Holy cow! What a meal. Our group of 9 gorged ourselves on fish and risotto. The fish stew in particular was divine. Well priced for Taormina. You must go.

We had dinner twice here in late October 2015 and was presented with a wonderful dinner. Pasta Bolognese was very good and home made bread was very good also.
