Excellent pizza

We enjoyed our pizza so much when we visited this restaurant that we came back a few nights later. The pizza was thin and well cooked in the wood fired oven with just the right amount of burnt bits! The staff were all friendly and helpful, definitely worth a visit.

Our only regret is discovering this restaurant on our last day as we had a fantastic meal there. We all ordered different pizzas, which were all excellent. The service is very efficient and there is a sort of gadget on every table to summon the waiter or ask for the bill. The restaurant is good value for money and has... More

Certainly not a new place as the name says "Old Taormina" but it was new to me. In my many trips to Taormina I never noticed this osteria pizzeria . It was well past the normal lunch hour but I was starving!!! Aiu fami. I'm happy I made this choice. The pasta was to my liking and it came out... More

The pizza was very good, but the staff weren't very friendly and the atmosphere was rather depressing.

Go here and order the traditional Tumminia grain: sicilian organically grown naturally stone-ground tumminia durm wheat. And then choose any flavour/toppings you want. You will not be disappointed. This is pizza!

1. We ordered a bottle of rose and it was foul but they easily offended another bottle. 2. More than half of the mussels in the mixed seafood appetizer were completely closed. 3. Pizza bottom was very soggy. 4. Tables are aggressively turned quickly, not good for romantic dates.

Came here for pizza on our first night in Taormina, was not disappointed. It seemed to be full of locals and travellers. Busy, so service was a bit slow, but food was great and very good value.
