Thin delicious crust. Located in a quiet lane off the busy Courso Umberto, a great place to stop for lunch. The pasta alla Norma was very good too.

Staff are friendly and my wife says it is the best Pizza in Taormina. Value is good and there is plenty of seating and during the summer great outside space.

OK, it was a Monday evening in February, but still, they could shown a little more "zip." Positives - the bases of the pizzas are amongst the best I've eaten anywhere with a slightly chewy texture and a sourdough flavour. Very nice. And the wine was good. Less good - the toppings tasted a little insipid and the service OK... More

I was about to write "the worst pizza" but then I recalled eating a rock-like pizza somewhere else, so this place got the second place. The crust was tasteless and hard, toppings were also tasteless, so the combination was like eating a piece of wood. However, the service and the atmosphere was OK.

We shared a Pizza Norma and a beer each. Fantastic pizza - best we have had in taormina thus far. Unfortunately the servers (we had 3) were all a bit surly and unfriendly.

Our first choice pizza restaurant was unable to do pizza due to their oven breaking so we went in search of another. On the recommendation of that restaurant owner we tried Vecchia Taormina. The food was delicious. Great range of options and we all enjoyed every one of them. We went back there again just for their starters before we... More

We went looking for a quick meal and found one. Good quality pizza and pasta Al Norma. Small place inside but with a big terrace if weather is appropriate. Service was good and we'd go back.

We were recently in Taoromina for three days, and we ate lunch here twice. The wood fired pizza had a nice chewy crust and was nicely browned without being burned. We are a family of four and we each ordered a different pizza, and we were all happy. The restaurant was very nice about taking meat off of pizzas to... More
