This restaurant is trying to be something its chef isn't skilled at delivering. The chef seems to want to provide cutting edge food but didn't quite get the flavours right. I was persuaded by the waiter to try the house special tuna with a chocolate sweet and sour sauce. It just didn't work. My starter also had an equally bewildering... More

We recently spent two weeks in the beautiful town of Taormina, Sicily. We found this restaurant on our second week and wished we had found it sooner!!! The food is very high quality and real value for money!! The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drink they serve. They take pride in advising and recommending different...

We had a quiet lunch here on a very hot day, as this restaurant seemed to catch the breeze and was in a quieter spot than many! We had the 20-euro lunch, which included three courses, wine and water - very good value and we enjoyed the food. The waiters were very attentive and friendly and the service good.

After our first choice restaurant was inexplicably closed on a Wednesday we wanted something that wasn't your usual tourist type menu that many restaurants advertise. Having looked at a few we were decided to give Le Naumachie a go. The menu, whilst not extensive, was varied to the surrounding restaurants and the choice of fish we had was lovely. The... More

At a place like Taormina where you would be suspicious of getting into a tourist trap, this place is definitely not one. It's located off the bust Corso Umberto with a pleasant terrace. Everything about the experience just felt right. And the prices are extremely fair. Would highly recommend.

Spent a week in Taormina and our evening at this restaurant was one of the highlights! Sat upstairs on the terrace, exceptional service from Giuseppe and the cuisine was outstanding. A creative menu with fresh regional products. The complimentary Limoencello at the end of the meal topped it of!!. Would highly recommend this restaurant

This is an update out of 3 visits in April 2015: As a result: I am shocked: Try to imagine that the owner is 1 week not seen in the restaurant. The cook was exchanged and the new head waiter is unable to see all the mistakes and to deal with complaints. For starter I have ordered Spaghetti with Gamberetti... More

We came across this restaurant by chance and ended up eating there twice during our 5 days in Taormina. The food was well thought out, local and delicious - with small additional touches such as the infused sea salt. And the staff - all of them - so very friendly and welcoming. Very reasonably priced and will be visited again... More

While staying in Taormina, full of tourist trap restaurants offering dubious-quality food, we stumbled across this gem. The food was glorious, and the service was all done with a smile. I can highly recommend the porcini lasagna, which was divine, as was the dessert. Although slightly more expensive than restaurants in other cities of Sicily this place is definitely worth... More
