    Our Local!
    We always gravitated here during our stay in Taormina for at least a couple of drinks or a snack. The atmosphere was perfect, close nit and quirky. Service was excellent and the position perfect for people watching. Watch out for a couple of the more interesting statues inside!!!

    Great place to visit in Toamina.
    My partner and I recently visited Toamina. We came across this place on our 2nd night of a 6 night stay, what a great find, we enjoyed the atmosphere so much we went back every evening for the rest of our stay. The stand outs are the staff, always friendly and efficient. The owner Tano and his staff although always busy took the time to make you feel welcome. Thank you Tano ,Mary and especially Michele for helping me with my Italian. Hope to see you all soon.

    Lovely bar
    We just kept coming back to this lovely little place during our stay in Taormina. I really cannot fault this bar, attractive decor, lovely atmosphere, good selection of drinks and the food is always so fresh. But it’s the staff who make this a place you want to return to, they are just the friendliest and nicest of people. Thank you to everyone at Re di Bastoni for the parts you played in making our evenings in Taormina so enjoyable.

We love Sicily and Taormina.. This year we have decided to spend my husband birthday there. We had such lovely night, there in Taormina until we have met The Owner..... We went for a drink latet hat night. So when we went there we were in a good mood after 2 drinks and a meal. As it was my husband birthday, we wanted to enjoy an evening wiith one more drink. And as it was already late we wanted to take a bottle of wine to the room and have a glass on our balcony.
We have treated his staff, offered a drinks ordered one drink each and I had a shot- . At the end we have ordered a bottle of wine to take away. We both were tteated terribly wrong as I have asked The Boss for different type of wine and prices
per bottle His temper came out just after I've questioned the bottle of wine for £20 to take away. I simply like to know what I am buying. Plus this behaviour was unacteptable. We at the end got our bottle elsewhere. Get to our roomand cin cined with one mor gkass. I We won't recommend or come back. But we wil pass the message further

You offended us all trying to offer miserable 10 € For a bottle of excellent and well refrigerated white wine ,And also sarcastically saying we were selling cheap wine bought in supermarket. So you deserve to be treated as you were !! Insulting us by treating us as low class robbers We are doing our job impeccably offering our customers the best Sicilian wines of the best wine producers of the island!!!! So tell all the truth !!!! We were preparing the bottle for you to take away with two new complimentary wine glasses When you said what you said!!!!! You. behaved badly offending us all!! You where served with the best care,after 02 o clock in the night when we were ready to close !!! Even your husband was shamed!! Do what you did anywhere else but not...... in Taormina !!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is THE location to to be to spend a great evening. Music, local food, cocktails, service - everything is with so much love and attention. Order bruschetta and you couldn't get better one in Taormina; or take the sicilian plate with cheese, ham and good olive oil. For any sweet tooth get irish coffee.
Visit early to hear the owner play Bach, Scarlatti, Debussy and Chopin on the piano next to the bar or be there at a Jazz Night.
This Location will touch your soul ... don't miss it!

The first bar visited after arriving in town. Great selection of drinks, especially beers and the regional ones we wanted to try. Excellent service. Very attentive and welcoming. Colourful and bright feel to the place with open front on to the Main Street. The seating is somewhat low and the hard wood seats aren’t the most comfortable but not end of the world as there is a cosy feel to the setting. The bar food is generous and scrumptious. When we visited there was also live jazz music on.

Came here twice during a week in Taormina. We stumbled across it but it really saved our evening the last time.

It’s reasonably priced, the vibe is always great, staff super friendly and drinks delicious.

We had a horrendous meal and came here for a drink to recover and realised they do casual food and it was so delicious.

This is the best, friendliest most welcoming bar in Taormina.

This is a family run bar and restaurant which is reflected in the atmosphere in the place.

Every time we visit, we end up chatting to people on the next tables. It’s simply a great place to be.

A special mention to Michele who always takes the time to help us with our poor Italian.

They regularly have live music and we were lucky to catch an amazing due. The singer had a beautiful voice and the guy on the guitar was flawless.

You have to visit here if you are in Taormina.

Lovely little traditional Sicilian bar. The staff are so friendly. When my husband ( on our first visit ) asked for 2 beers the waitress said " 2 beers or not 2 beers ) . Great Shakespeare quote. Then 1 beer was followed by the quote from The Merchant of Venice. Fantastic sense of humour. Put a smile on our faces fir the rest of the day. We had lunch there today. We chose the selection of local hams and cheeses and it was delicious. Thank you for 2 great experiences

Wonderful place and amazing staff. Please try the panini made of homemade bread. Local people working there who take their time to talk to you. Enjoying every minute here. If you’re visiting Taormina, it’s the best place for easy lunch and some drinks 😃

This was our second visit to Taormina, the first being pre Covid. We had visited Re di Bastoni previously and were concerned it may not have survived. We were pleased to see it still there with the same owner in place. It’s lost none of its charm and friendliness. The staff are really friendly and helpful and if you’re lucky to find a free table outside you can sit and watch the world pass you by as people stroll along the Corso Umberto. It’s a great place to sit and have a drink or two on an evening.
We’ll definitely be back. Mikael, make sure you have a Martini waiting for my wife!

Visited in mid July and loved this place. Every person working there was just lovely, so warm and friendly and we returned several times. A lot of restaurants/bars we went to had rude or unhelpful staff and this was the most amazing contrast. Not over-priced, plenty of tables and an awesome cheeseboard! We hope to be back. Thank you x
