“Not recommended”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Went there for lunch. Staff disinterested. Service very slow, it took 40 minutes to be served tuna which was frozen. Definately not returning. Dave. Ireland.

“Best pizza in Taormina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This pizzeria has great pizzas - best ones through our entire trip in Sicily.
Surprisingly, when you ordered Quatro formagi pizza to take away instead of eating in the pizzeria, the cost was only 6 euro (vs. over 10 euro while seated).
Meat and fish dishes are also quite good there.

“Fantastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were so happy to find this lovely place. The staff were charming and very friendly. We had sea bass and the mixed fish grill and both were excellent. Fresh fish and salad. Nice lemon sorbet to finish. Will probably go back tomorrow night! Excellent and great value.the house blanco is fragrant and floral delicious too.

“Restaurant and Cooking Class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

If you want to try authentic Sicillian food, this restaurant should be on your list.
Angelo (owner and chef) purchases fresh ingredients plus including fish locally. Back in the restaurant he prepares mouth watering dishes such as, seafood linguine, tender lemon chicken fillets, golden crumbed aubergine slices, delicious pizza and much more. Additional to eating at the restaurant I had a wonderful cooking class with Angelo who shared many of his Sicillian recipes.
