Unbelievable food. Great staff. Cocktails are very good...no question of their alcoholic content. The setting is a huge plus for this place...truly magical!

We got married in Sicily in October 2014. We had been planning the wedding for about a year and based on a previous experience at this restaurant (2012) we knew we wanted our reception meal at Le Naumachie. We tentatively contacted Head Chef (Francesco) and his team about 10 months prior to the big day. If we had any nerves... More

We are pleased we found this restauarant, we were originally attracted by the interesting menu. On the two evenings we ate here we tried the chicken, lamb and beef dishes, all were delicous. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. It was a shame the weather was not better as we would have liked to eat on the roof terrace... More

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
