Our hotel (villa belvedere) recommended this venue as one of the two to try out, and it was our first dinner choice in Taormina. It is a tastefully decked out small venue with about 10 tables and a bar tucked in the back. Simple and pleasant deco, on the chic side. The staff was very friendly and passionate but not... More

We had a wonderful meal here. My husband had a steak which he reckons was the best steak he has ever eaten. I had some fish Sicilian style, which was delicious even if I didn't understand the waiter when he told me what kind of fish it was!

We nearly passed this by as the menu was so unprepossessing. It would gave been a big big mistake. All courses weee absolutely delicious and our waiter was atentive, quietly passionate and appreciative of our enjoyment. The seafood dishes were all excellent and I was particularly enthralled by the calamaró gratinata.

Hidden away in back street with just a few tables outside we had really nice seafood and wine. Saw the place a few nights earlier when it was booked out by what looked like a wedding party and decided to go back. We were not disappointed. A fish stew/soup and a local Sicilian fish dish both hit the spot after... More

Pretty dismayed by our food experiences in the town so far, on the fourth night of our stay in Taormina we came upon the small but very pleasant restaurant Vineria Modi. The interior is simple with white table cloths, small table lamps and a large selection of Sicilian wines on display. No more than 12-14 places inside the restaurant, with... More

Great little restaurant hidden from the large crowds of the Corso Umberto. Local specialties as well as a gem of a Sicilian wine list makes me want to return someday. Delicious gratis Amaro to finish off our dinner!

The lamp was simply perfect and unfortunately I forgot to try the co, but it must have been very good, too. The wine ranges from 20- XXX € but we had a lovely one to a reasonanly price.... More

Fantastic food, wine and service. We tried several restaurants in Taormina over a week, this was far the best. Would recommend if you want well prepared local food. The daily specials were great as well as items from the main menu. Enjoy!
