We stopped at Re Di Bastoni for a limoncello after dinner in Taormina. The atmosphere is relaxed but vibrant - piano accompanied by fret-less double bass.... fabulous classic music to admire and enjoy in Sicily. A must-see whilst in Taormina!

We love this bar it has a great range of local craft beers and a nice friendly atmosphere. We always get the bruschetta with oregano, delicious.
