We had a nice salad and panini here for a lighter lunch. Cute place, big beer selection. Service was good, of the typical, unhurried Italian variety. Sit inside for quieter/calmer lunch, outside to people watch- it's on a busy street.

The bar has the most friendliest staff from emanual and Micky who serve outside to the... More

Just back from our 5th visit to Taormina and once again spent many lovely times eating and drinking at Re di Bastoni. The staff are lovely and spend time chatting with you. The food is excellent, we particularly like the Tommy panini and bruschetta. The fresh orange juice made from Sicilian oranges is very nice, as is the coffee. We... More

This is my all-time favourite bar in Sicily! The atmosphere is wonderful. The staff super-friendly. The drinks REALLY good... I had 3 White Russians tonight! I always leave Di Bastoni with a glowing feeling. I can't recommend it highly enough! I was there last year, and I'll be back next year (and tomorrow!).

Really nice local bar with friendly staff and a good spot for people watching on the main street through Taormina. Shame about the 80s decor with orange rag rolled walls but everything else is good and can recommend a visit here.

First visit was a quick drink. Left my wallett on the bar. Credit to the staff the barman chased after to me to return it ! Second was a little chill factor and people watching. Third was people watching. Fourth was a reality of how good the staff were. Great people skills. Fifth was a wake up moment, the people... More

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).
