This was one of our favourite restaurants on our previous visit to Taormina in 2014. The food is not as enjoyable as it once was. Perhaps the chef has changed as something definitely hasaltered the tandard of food. Service was good and we didn't have long to wait for food but the magic of our previous visit had disappeared and... More

Picture above is pretty representative - a place of calm amidst Taormina's bustling streets. Food is good.

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!

My husband and i were there about week ago. Got it off trip advisor. Centrally located/decor charming. 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
