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.

After two days disappointed with the local restaurants, we found that place. This restaurant, strategicalety located out of the main street, is a great refugy for those who doesn t want to be treated as tourist. The staff is a bit confuse, but the food compensates.The price is fair. Order the sea food.

We tried this restaurant on our first night in Taormina and returned three nights later despite much competition. On our first visit I tried the spaghetti ailoi with chilli to start, wow that was hot but good and my wife had one of three spaghetti vongolis in our 8 days there which she said was very good. I had veal... More

We found this on our second night and it was brilliant. They gave us free appetisers before and sweet wine after our meal. The fish soup was delicious, piled high with mussels and clams, so a bit hard work to eat. No finger bowl or cloth to wipe my hands was offered, my only complaint. The drinks were really good...

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel owner for the first night and don't really understand why. Everything about it was decidedly average. There was nothing particularly wrong, but nothing to rave about either! uninteresting roadside setting, straightforward pizza, and friendly but disorganised waiters. Reasonable value, but we had much better meals in the town.

They treat you like family. Very down to earth, quality food. Not a pretentious place. Simple and genuine. Excellent food.
