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!

One of the least touristy bars in Taormina. In the midst of everything but nice place to sit with some good wine and occasional music.
