“A place to eat sea food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Taormina has so many dinning options making a hard time to every tourist. This place was recommend by our family that leave in Catania. The restaurant is a bit hidden from the main street and I wouldn't have found this place without a recommendation. Good food and wine menu, sea food is the start of this place.I had a pasta a la bolognese. Avoid inside saloon if going on a hot day! no air conditioned and really hot. reservation is mandatory if you want to seat outside.

“Go...Go..Go!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We do not eat meat and wanted to find a delicious place for fish and seafood.
Well this is it........After 6 days of good food...we found this restaurant...which was recommended to us and the fish was fabulous.. Very unpretentious restaurant ...sit outside if possible.
The staff were friendly and fun.. We left wine choice to them...and glad we did..
We also loved dessert...and yummy!!!!

“Top of our list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We ate in 4 retaurants. Best performance was this restaurant. In our view 2nd was L, Incontro. A distant 3rd was Tratoria Da Nino, and a dismal last was La Botte.
Definitely advisable to book. The staff were welcoming and enthusiastic.
Expect service to be slow and the food to arrive beautifully cooked. Take your time and enjoy a great wine selection. Enjoy the atmosphere. Don't book for too early in the evening. Price is reasonable for the high quality and depth of menu choice.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We tried to eat here one evening without a reservation but it was fully booked - always a good sign - so we made a reservation for the last evening of our visit to Taormina. We definitely ended on a high. The service was impeccable and the food outstanding. If we only had one day in Taormina this is where we'd eat - it's not the cheapest, but it's worthy every penny.

“Service fell apart at the end”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Nice atmosphere and out of the fray. Service not overly friendly to us but very friendly to other tables. It was initially proficient but at the end completely fell apart considering the place was no longer busy.
