Great location just by the main square. Prices are standard for the town. Staff very friendly though often overworked. Excellent bands and a dancer who must be seen to be believed.

We were hoping for so much more from this well known cafe. Complacency has set in it would seem with its reliance on the location and evening entertainment to carry it through. Our breakfast experience was underwhelming and eye-wateringly expensive. Cold coffee, cold toast and...More

This place is must to visit. We had the best cocktails there accompanied by the live music. Though it was busy due to a film festival 2019 the service was efficient.

Spectacular view from some seats. But the rest is just ok. Service a bit tired. And prices are tad high. All in all a nice time for a drink.

Visited Taormina and this is a great place to stop eat, drink and people watch. Really reasonable prices for good food, drink and service. Grazzi ciao

The view was overwhelming and the croissant enormous. The service was very good. But - the price was over the top shelf and there was no gluten free alternatives, even though it is stated so at TripAdvisor. Bathroom was OK.

Lovely location for pre-dinner drinks on the edge of the piazza with all of its bustle, and with views both of Etna and over the bay. The ridiculously extensive array of nibbles which appear with every drinks order no doubt contributes to the expensive prices,...More

Had delicious cake and coffee but the staff were grumpy unsmiling and quite surly. The views were amazing overlooking the sea but spoilt by the miserable service.

I had the Liz Taylor which was excellent. Other half had Italian gin which was also nice. Great “free nibbles”. Great atmosphere, on the pricy side but nice for a treat.
