Found a table in the wonderful courtyard beside the Roman wall. We both had swordfish wrapped around breadcrumbs, herbs etc - this turned out to be 4 tiny pieces; delicious but mean. We asked for 1/2 litre of house wine but they do not have this - so we found ourselves ordering a half bottle of their cheapest wine at... More

We discovered this sylish little restaurant in a side side street. We were attracted by the menu - in particular the pork in a sweet and sour strawberry sauce. This meal turned out to be the best we had in Taormina and we returned three times. The service was friendly, polite and efficient and we recommend this establishment if you... More

Along with Al Doumo and Al Giardino, Le Naumachie offers some of the best food in Taormina. It's the only restaurant in our experience that offers a modern take on traditional Sicilian dishes. On the menu you can find some interesting combinations such as tuna with chocolate and pork with strawberry. The arrancini with anchovies are highly recommended, though the... More

We had a delicious dinner but sat on the street out front which was not veru scenic - the upstairs patio wasn't open and we hadn't seen the fabulous courtyard in the back (it was full anyway).

This little "Ristorante" is perfect especially if you eat in the court yard. There are not too many covers but if you cannot get there, book it for another evening you will not be disappointed. It is a step up from his Mummies restaurant. The food is beautifully presented on every course and when a chef takes such care in... More

Not the run of the mill Taormina restaurant, the location is good and the style is less intense than those on the main drag. We found the service good and efficient. The quality of the menu and wine list was above average and, later in the evening, the owner was happy to chat about life, the universe and everything. We... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant after hearing that the best restaurants in Taormina are off the main street and in the alleyways. It's a very unique layout as there are seats in the front, the back, and the terrace (terrace is recommended). First off, the dishes they serve are very stylistic and unique. We started off with their garden salad... More

We had a great meal here recently - we rated it the best meal we ate during our trip. There are lots of really friendly and great places to eat in Taormina but they all have virtually the same menu so it can get a bit 'samey'. This restaurant is different. The service could have been slightly quicker, but the... More
