This restaurant in a little way off the Main Street, but the food is excellent. The bread is homemade. The choice on the menu is not excessive, but is is all prepared and presented to a very high standard. Generally a bit smaller and better quality than a lot of the other restaurants. Special mention must be made of Andrea,... More

Lovely restaurant where we ate three times during our 10night stay in Taormina. The menu is just that little different from the majority of other in town restaurants. We enjoyed all our food there, fish, chicken and lamb dishes were all very well cooked. Particular mention to Andrea who is was the best waiter we came across during our stay.... More

Very fresh food with explanations as to provenance and regional identity. Highly recommended, a bit off the main drag so search it out. Staff very good indeed

Had one evening meal here after being recommended by Mamma Rosa around the corner and owned by same family. We sat outside in a not-very-interesting street. Food, service and wine all very good and prices ok. I, like others, would recommend the arancini and tiramisu. My main course beautifully cooked fish. The bread was delicious and served in novel little... More

Brief menu, so not extensive but done very well with special touches in presentation and above the run of the mill local places. Tried Arancini (rice balls stuffed with anchovies) and had amazing and very expensive local olive oil with bread to start. Service excellent. Wine good too!

Really can't fault this place. Great food with an original take - tuna with chocolate! - and presented well. Service informative and friendly and if you sit outside you can be served by Cristiano Ronaldo. The desserts are very obviously not straight from the freezer and the complimentary limoncello is the best in town. We visited twice, once sitting outside... More

It is really The best restaurant in town. Andrea is The best waiter with The best advice. I have been in April in this Place and now again. Only this Place is worth visiting Taormina. So friendly. So fantastic kitchen. Minimal 1 Michelin Star. Don't go to all these touristic restaurans. GO HERE
