“One of my best meals !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Porto San Paolo was a recommendation to me by a New York Chef who is from Sicily. We were glad we went. Great location, as it is right overlooking the fishing harbor. Lovely windows to look out and a beautiful sunny patio.

Service was fine and the food was some of the best I had in all my weeks in Italy. I seriously loved the large appetizer platter. Delicious and finely prepared tastes of many seafood delicacies. I felt brave and tried the spaghetti with black ink sauce. Really surprisingly delicious!! My other companions tried many pasta and fish dishes. Everyone was very happy with their meals. The Nero Davola wine that was suggested was wonderful. I'm happy we chose Porto San Paolo! Fresh, fresh food! Nice clean restaurant.

“Best meal in Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

The sparda pische San Paolo was unforgettable; I searched for it in other Sicilian towns and cities with no luck. In Taorimina a guy tried to make it for me but the results were less than good.
reasonable prices too.

“GOOD STUFF”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

this is what a busy trattoria should be - good food, casual, and a feeling that one is part of the local scene. and in the fishing port which is special.

“Great Seafood!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Have eaten here many times over the past 20 or so years. Situated in the busy harbour overlooking the fishing boats (recently featured in the BBCs 'Sicily Unpacked), Porto San Paolo boasts excellent seafood fresh off the boats that come into the harbour. Seafood Linguine to start with and Seafood Mixed Grill main course are my favourites. They also have an excellent wine list - if you are confused about the choice then opt for the Planeta Alastro (white) to go with your seafood dishes. If possible book in advance and ask for a table on the terrazza overlooking the harbour...it's really romantic...
