“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

I went there twice with my friends. I liked it a lot. The place the best view of Isola Bella. The prices were normal (comparing with other restaurants). The service was good and I enjoyed a lot the food and the wine.

I recommend this if you would like a nice view in a quite place.

“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Great views overlooking Isola Bella. There is good food, service and refreshing local wine (on a hot day). Informal, out on the shaded terrace, what could be better. And it is inexpensive.

“not only a panorama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

We sought this out on a recommendation. Not the easiest spot to access, but the compensation is a great view from the balcony seating over famous Isola Bella and nearby beach. Great place for a relaxed lunch when the weather is mild, but this is really a seasonal spot, and the owner was honest that the fresh fish was limited when we visited. However the home made ravioli lived up to its billing and the sea bass that we were offered was both fresh and perfectly cooked. Like virtually all the places we visited in Sicily (and especially Taormina) everyone was very friendly.
