We had a lovely dinner at O' Zamara in their quite and quaint garden. The pasta a la Norma and pasta with fried zucchini are absolutely delicious. The deserts are also delicious. A great address in Taormina

Went here our first night in Taormina. Can recommend a seat in the cosy garden outside which provides a nice breathing room from the busy Corso Umberto. We upgraded our mixed seafood spaghetti to include some freshly caught lobster and that was truly one of the best dishes we had during our stay. Also really great and cheap local wines

The restaurant is tucked away in a corner. The restaurant is decorated in true Italian style with plenty of plants around and orange trees growing above. Meal was delicious.

We had a lovely evening at 'A Zammara. The garden setting is lovely and we both enjoyed our food. The complimentary glass off limoncello was a nice touch. The best value meal we've had in Taormina.

The restaurant is located in a peaceful alley a bit away from the most popular Main Street. The restaurant offers traditional Italian food. They have a big selection of wine. The service is great!

If the Food was as nice as the surroundings, then we would like to recommend this place. Quit place for a drink is the best we can say.

Ordered prawns marinated for starter, thought they would be grilled, but were raw/squisy to the taste. Cost was about €15, asked them to take away as we didnt like them (my husband & i are together 34 years and never returned a dish... More

Enjoy dinner in any weather, the outdoor garden is covered with a canopy and inside the restaurant floor see some preserved artifacts. The friendly staff is very efficient. Carmelo makes a FANTASTIC complimentary foccia to start off your meal but don't eat too much and ruin your appetite. We started with the parmigiana, which melted in my mouth, had the... More

We came to A'Zammara as recommended on Trip Advisor. The setting was delightful. The waiter was so patronising and disdainful we appeared to be a real inconvenience to him. The food was salty and indifferent, stodgy and boring. The wrath of the waiter fell upon us as a result. Easily the worst meal/service we have received.
