We found this place while walking to the main dining area in Taromina. We dropped in and were we glad that we did. Everything was fresh and homemade. The food was really excellent as was the ambience. The eggplant appetizer was to die for as were the pasta dishes. You will not be disappointed.

All I can say is “Buono, Buono, Buono!!” Perfect meal in a LOVELY setting! The pictures and words will not do justice to how amazing our dinner here was! Our hotel proprietor, an insider and Taormina native!, recommended that we come here! And we’re so glad we did, it was amazing! The meal began with a cocktail of gorgeous, perfect... More

This is an absolutely delightful restaurant serving food from a very extensive menu. We, two mature couples, were warmly welcomed on our arrival at the restaurant.and enjoyed an excellent range of food serviced. The service was efficient without being obtrusive. The food was delicious and we choose the house wine and that was more than acceptable. Before leaving we were... More

The most impressive thing about this place is that you can see the entire kitchen from the dining room...and the kitchen looks like a showroom, it is spotlessly clean shiny and lets you know that the owner takes pride in his place of business. The food is great, typical Italian dishes of all kinds, pastas, seafoods, etc. The service is... More

Despite the nice ambiance, the food was tasteless and expensive for what they offered. Service was average. Do not recommend it.

We were so glad we found this restaurant as the food was good and reasonably priced for Taormina. We ate there on our last three consecutive evenings and wished we had found it earlier. Staff are friendly and you can see the kitchen is very clean indeed. Complimentary limoncello or grappa at the end of your meal. Highly recommended.

Our food was excellent, as was the service, for a modest price. The restaurant has a retracting roof, so we were semi al fresco, in most pleasant surroundings. We tried the parmigiana, the arancini, and the home made macheroni, all excellent. Well worth considering if your hotel food is pricey.
