We ate dinner twice in this restaurant during our visit to Taormina in August 2014 and enjoyed the experience both times. On the first occasion we sat in the quiet setting next to the Roman arches - a lovely peaceful atmosphere only moments away from the main busy thoroughfare. Enjoyable food and drink and a delicious Amuse Bouche on that... More

We booked to eat on the terrace by the old walls.the setting is fantastic and very romantic in an evening! There were a number of very good points about this restaurant but for us, and we admit that we are critical, it fell slightly short of the mark. Whilst ordering we bought 2 glasses of Spumante which was nice and... More

We'd contacted the restaurant by email before we left home and they confirmed the reservation by email, with a follow up on the day we were to arrive. Our booking was for 7pm, we believe they open at 6.30pm, and we were the first to be seated. It did not take long for other guests to arrive and be seated.... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant when we were last in Taormina in 2012. But having changed hands it is different. Staff friendly but needs to get the kitchen right. Strange but food needs a surer touch.

Visited here twice during our stay and loved every minute of it! Firstly the staff are brilliant and service is great. The chef and waiter even remembered us from our first visit and made us feel very welcome. We sat outside the front on a quiet street which was good and on our second visit we sat in the Naumachie...

Again, went by the reviews. The food was pretty ok. Very small proportions. The major problem we had was the wait. The service was very slow. It was 20 minutes before our order was taken then another 20 minutes before we got our drinks, which was white wine which was served warm. The food was alright, the price was average... More

Came here last night after reading reviews. Was seated by waitress who was lovely. They had seating outside at opposite ends of the restaurant. It was quite a while before our order was taken. We asked the waitress to recommend a local wine, she suggested a wine which only came in half litre or litre size, we debated then decided... More

Eating out in Taormina is an interesting experience, this was by far the best restaurant and food we had in our two week stay. To start with no street performers turned up to sing, bliss! The service was good, plenty of time was given to chose the food and wine, from an extensive and not expensive list. We had to... More

Very pleased with both the food and the service. Very nice and quite place (outside in the courtyard). Exquisite taste.

Best dining experience in Taormina by far. This culinary gem is off the beaten path (and definitely off the overcrowded main street). The food is traditional Sicilian fair refined. Exquisite taste and presentation. Find it. Dine there. You will not regret.
