Relaxing bar, went a few times during our stay in Taormina. Always welcoming, friendly service. Good place to watch the world go by on the main street in Taormina. Good choice of beers - developed a taste for Ulysses, one of the craft beers available (great but like most craft beers not cheap).

This is a great bar in a prime location on Corso Umberto, and it has quite a cool, alternative vibe with the great staff and the soundtrack. We came here twice, sat outside for an early evening spritz and nibbles, and returned later after dinner for some drinks. They also have indoor seating and good air conditioning, it was fun... More

A nice little bar on the main drag. Friendly welcoming staff with Paulaner on tap and Sicilian craft beers by the bottle. Try them all!

Stopped on my wandering for a liquid refreshment, very friendly staff, great spot for watching the day go by and people watching, bit of music in the background helps as well.

This bar is the place to be! We visited here several nights on our trip to Taormina. The staff remembered us and each of our drinks without prompting and we were well looked after. The staff are friendly and service is really good even when busy. Prices are also good considering the very central location. We were lucky enough to... More

Our favourite spot to spend the evening with reasonably priced drinks and great for people watching, just make sure you get a table outside although the atmosphere inside is good.Great service and excellent service makes this the best location and value in Taormina.

In the heat of the day we needed to hide away and have a beer or two. On the Main Street we jumped into the Re do Bastoni and had a good cool time with some beer and lovely panini and snacks. Excellent service - just the place to enjoy a time out

A popular place on Corso Umberto where we enjoyed lunch today. Service was friendly and efficient. The thick stone of the old building made it a cool and relaxing place for lunch. Typical menu of Sicilian food. Mid-range prices.
