Great pizza

I'm not going to put their pizza in the top ten list, but as far as pizza goes in both Letojanni and Taormina, this place is on top. Perfect char on the crust and amazing selection. The bruschetta pizza was one of our favorites. The service is a bit slow and lacking, even for Sicilian standards... read more

Of all the restaurants we tried in Letojanni this one is the best. We tried salad, pasta and pizza and all the dishes where really good. The service is friendly and helpful, You feel very welcomed at this restaurant. And the price is right, good value for your money.

This is definitely the friendliest restaurant in town. We are here 5 times during 2 weeks, it is so much better than the others we tried. The food is very good with bruschetta offered while waiting for your order. We ate both pasta and pizza dishes, their chips are really good too. The wine list in not expensive for some... More

Ate here 3 nights in 1 week, we absolutely loved it and was made to feel so welcome and treated very well. Food was fresh and always top quality food and not expensive at all! Service was fantastic. Very traditional as well as welcoming and friendly! Will definitely visit back here again some day when we head back to Letojanni

I visited Sicily in March 2015 with a Friend, it was the quiet season and the majority of hotels and restaurants in Letojanni were closed for the season, in fact I'm sure the only hotel open was the one we stayed in. After wandering the streets finding our way round we chose somewhere to eat.. This was not Carpe Diem... More

we went there one evening and waited ages to get our drinks. We ordered before the locals but they got their food first. We had nearly finished our wine before we got our pizza. Maybe they were just short staffed that night as there was only two of them. The pizza and salad was great though.

Carpe Diem is a standard Sicilian restaurant in terms of food selection but the quality of the service from staff and the food from the kitchen make this a must visit place. The tables and toilets were very clean, the fish and pasta dishes a delight. Wine was good quality and the free limoncello a nice touch. We went on... More

Had two very good meals at this local restaurant where the staff were helpful and attentive. Fish was really good and not overly expensive. Would recommend.

Superb food and excellent service. A must if you find yourself in Letojanni. We were only sorry that we didn't find it until the last 2 days of a 14 day holiday.
