This place is good - just off the Main Street down a little alley. Sicilian menu - not a vast menu but all interesting dishes. Tuna tartar was beautifully flavoured, pasta in a sardine sauce absolutely delicious - and the house wine really good. Certainly worth a visit and much better than some of the more tourist places with vast... More

Our first night in Taromina. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel we're staying in. It was very good but not outstanding. I will say the Pulpo was excellent and the caponata was excellent. Pasta dishes ranged from good to very good.

We found it quite difficult to find good places to eat in Taormina, being late December. We were so happy to find this place almost by accident. The tuna tartar was divine and the steaks we had to follow were the most tender we have ever eaten. The staff were efficient and very friendly - there was a good atmosphere... More

The meal was the best we had in Taormina. The highlight for me was the seafood risotto which you could smell even before you saw it. Wonderful!

This restaurant was recommended by our Inghams rep and did not disappoint. Always noticeable is when locals eat here and they clearly do! We had a wonderful lunch here and intended to go back but unfortunately chose their day off! Highly recommended.

You know sometimes when you eat at a restaurant the level of knowledge and care is beyond the normal run of the mill staff attitude and demonstrates why they have a successful business. We were recommended this by our hotel (Villa Ducale) which also has a good restaurant. It's obvious these aren't just employees, these are the owners looking after... More

Recommended to my wife by our hotel and, although the food, service and ambience were very good, it didn't warrant the €120 bill for the two of us.
