On the back street but very Italian. Just had a pizza and lasagne. Pizza would have done 2 of us really good food for lunchtime.

We visited this Pizzeria twice on our holiday here last August so were keen to try again this year. We have now been twice again and look forward to a third visit before we leave. You simply cannot be disappointed with this place...the food, service, atmosphere and overall value for money. Highly recommend the pizza salmone and the penne Norma.... More

We noticed this little alley way whilst walking the Corso Umberto with a menu board offering traditional Sicilian food (not something that I saw a lot of) & we decided that this would be the spot for our last night dinner, we were so glad that we did. I wasn't sure what to expect when we walked down the little... More

Like lots of restaurants in Taormina, it's hidden in an alleyway. Nearer the Porta Cantania end of Corsa Umberto with access from the Duomo Piazza. Plus points - great pizza, good basic service, best Tiramisu (and I'm an expert!), air conditioned area in the base of the building if you are desperate. Downside - no view, it's set in passageways... More

We really had outstanding pizza here and the staff was very on their game. The restaurant was very busy but they were extremely organized and handled the crowd well. Ambience is excellent.

Lovely little restaurant with an outdoor terrace that serves amazing melt-in-your-mouth pizza. After stumbling across it for lunch on our second day we went back 4 times over the course of the week. Efficient staff, and definitely the best food we had in Taormina.

We had a lunch-time pizza in this establishment. Very good pizzas, nice bottle of wine, efficient service. This was a pleasant change after recent pizza experiences in the UK (Pizza Express have lost the plot). Our only minor gripe was that the area of the restaurant where we sat was a bit dark (I get suspicious when I can't see... More

Perhaps I choose the wrong Pizza...but really nothing to write home about. Service was also a little abrupt

We weren't sure where to eat and went into Vecchia on a Friday night. We remembered we had eaten there before as we arrived and had a nice experience. When we arrived all the outside tables were taken but the manager said once one came available we could move to it so we placed our orders at an inside table... More

Looked forward to eating here as the reviews seemed good and it was just round the corner from where we were staying, down a quiet street. The staff were attentive but not friendly at all, when it came to paying the bill someone other than our waiter took the money and was indifferent bordering on rude. Yes, the pizza was... More
