Tucked away in a small court yard Naumachie was real find. Fantastic food with inventive recipes (tuna with chocolate sauce), the best food we had in Taormina.

My boyfriend and i had a great dinner in this restaurant. We have eaten spaghetti with sarde and tonno with chocolate and cacao. The last one had intense and particular flavours that i've never eat before. The location is near the center but away from the crowds. I recommend this restaurant.

We stumbled across this little pláce during a recent visit to Taormina. The food is an order above that offered by the majority of Taormina restaurants. Partner had chicken stuffed with spinach in a mushroom sauce. I had pork fillet with strawberries in a sweet and sour sauce. Both dishes beautifully cooked and well presented. Cost, with wine and coffee,... More

Looked for this restaurant after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed. The food is delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. The service is excellent and the staff very attentive. My partner is on crutches and they were very accommodating and made us very comfortable. We visited twice and would highly recommend it.

Le Naumachie enjoys a nice spot in Taormine, with quiet terrace and garden dining. The food however was disappointing, rather ordinary for a place claiming to be passionate about cooking.

Taormina has no shortage of restaurants and we wanted to find something a little less touristy. The Naumachie, located right by the site of that name in central Taormina, was a good choice and we ate well. The menu was relatively limited, but what there was was very good and well prepared. The restaurant has some outside seating (at back... More
