I was very pleased. The servers were helpful and prompt. I had minestrone, swordfish, green beans, a glass of white wine and coffee for 33 euros. Everything was tasty, especially the soup and fish. Would definitely recommend this place.

Our hotel in Taormina recommended this small ristorante. Taormina is pretty much a vertical town, which means that one often has to climb many flights of stairs to get from one place to the other. This place was just down the street from our hotel and was "on the same level" making it convenient. The food is pretty much conventional... More

We made a reservation but when we arrived our table had not been reserved. The restaurant was full and we were shown upstairs to a soulless balcony where no one else was eating. When we declined to sit there the waiter followed us out of the restaurant down the street shouting after us if we wanted to cancel the reservation.... More

Comfortable restaurant away from the main tourist area. Small but interesting menu and a good selection of Sicilian wines. Only negative for us was that the pasta course was a little large and so we would have been better with one to share. You need to keep space for the grilled swordfish, which was superb. Attentive and friendly service.

Nice deck on the upper level but food was only fair at best. My wife got calamari which was inedible. The manager did deduct idk from our bill. The house red wine was very good

This was near our hotel so decided to try out after reading reviews. Looked like fully booked but there was room in the balcony. Food was great, we ate tagliatelle with shrimps and ravioli with butter and cream. Also pannacotta was delicious with some kind of caramel topping. Nothing bad to say and would definitely go again.

At first glance this restaurant lacks the character and a view such as is enjoyed by many others in Taormina but do not let that put you off. We had one of our best meals so far here. The welcome is warm and the menu is a little more interesting than most with enough choice to suit everyone. I would... More
