If you are anywhere within a 100 kilometres of the place, then this is one of the "must visit" restaurants that you cannot miss out on. The fish is absolutely is cooked to perfection and the variety offered includes every type caught in the area. The fantastic service and the sea views (the restaurant sits exactly on the water's edge)... More

We first stumbled upon Ristorante Da Lorenzo our first night in Taormina when we were tired, cold, and needed a nice meal. For our family of four, consisting of myself, my husband, and our two kids (ages 9 & 12), it was perfect. We had originally intended on having a couple small plates, since we were waiting for others to... More

Beautiful place in Santa Tecla of Acireale. I go there often because of delicious food, quick service and panoramic sea view.

We spent the nicest couple of nights at an apartment arranged by Salvatore and Lorenzo. They proved to be the best and warmest host ever!

This is the place to go if you want to eat and drink like a Sicilian. Dont expect meat, vegetables, desserts, or English to be spoken. Allow yourself to be guided, take a risk (the squid ink pasta is to die for) relax and enjoy. We found it by chance on a Sunday afternoon and left with two dozen new... More

We were here on a Friday night at 8pm. We were greeted nicely, and the sat outside which was lovely because the balcony was above the water, which was lit up. Although the restaurant was quite empty at the time since a bit early for dinner by Italian standards, the waiters gave us a really rushed feeling to order etc.... More

The restaurant appears to be quite small from the outisde, but on entering it opens out into a a large area with lots of seating plus an upstairs balconied area. We hadn't booked a table, but as we arrived at 7.30pm there were plenty available as the locals eat at about 9.00pm. We were fortunate enough to be offered a... More

If you are only interested in good food, this is the place to be. The fish and seafood is superfresh. The staff however only speaks Italian and that in itself is not a problem, but they don't do their best to try ro explain how it works. You are directed to the table with fresh products and then the slick... More

Da Lorenzo has got a menue card. But it includes only primi pasti. The remaining menue depends on what is caught in the sea during the day. At the entryway all the fresh seafood is displayed on a thick layer of ice. Antipasti is either ham/chease (nothing special) or a pallette of 5-6 tasters from the sea. This starter amazed... More
