If you're only dining once in Taormina, look no further than Le Naumachie. We went there twice and enjoyed delicious food in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. All staff wanted to make sure that you enjoyed your experience there. From the young waiter to the chef, everyone ensured that the dining experience was the best. We loved it.

Me and my wife we have visit La Naumachie and we were pleasantly surprised. Finally a restaurant in a touristic place that divers itself from the traditional way of presenting Italian food. Trendy, eye for details, fair price. We had very a little tower of eggplant mozzarella parmesan with a very good tomato sauce, a fresh ravioli of the day... More

A very interesting menu with traditional Italian food served in a modern style, with excellent flavours and presentation. The chef is mainly front of house explaining the dishes and making sure everything is okay. Friendly staff. The bill was in line with the other restaurants we visited in Taormina but we felt we had eaten a much higher value meal.

Visited on a Wednesday night and took the only remaining table for 2 inside as a large tourist group filled the remaining tables shortly after we arrived. However this was the second best meal we have had this week. Bread rolls and breadsticks home made and very good. Husband had the cream of onion soup which he declared delicious and... More

Myself and my husband were attending a wedding in Taormina and celebrating our own wedding anniversary at the same time. Wandering around the winding streets looking for a quiet spot to enjoy dinner we stumbled across this restaurant.....what a joy it was!!! The breadsticks with olive oil and amazing flavour-infused salt was delicious to tide us over before our starters... More

Although we visited all the way back in June last year, I thought it would be an injustice not to write a review. We visited due to TA reviews. We were seated and bought a brown bag with still warm bread sticks,oil and salt full of herbs and flavours- this was before our pig sharing anti pasti plate! Undecided on... More

My wife and I were recommended Ristorante Naumachia by the concierge at the Hotel Lancelot near by. The food was some of the best authentic Italian cuisine we got in all of Italy. We went back twice because of the great experience. Friendly staff, very affordable prices and the menu was diverse. We had pasta, pizza, steak, and everything in... More

The town has a plethora of places to eat which is somewhat confusing when wandering around deciding…is is touristy? are there plenty of locals eating here? Good Sicilian food and wine with out being expensive and a table outside provides an ideal spot to watch the passing parade….
