The restaurant is well situated outside the bustle of Taormina centre. The outside terrace was full on a Tuesday night, so make sure you reserve in advance. Service was very attentive. Marinated seafood, clam pasta dish a mixed fish grill were all superb. Was there with a friend from Naples and he agreed on the quality of the food. Do... More

No many tourists, lots of locals and seafood lovers. All the seafood is amazing, the crude sashimi is outstanding and pasta cooked to perfection! Super friendly and professional service.

We searched this place out as the lady who owns the villa we stayed at said it was close and was outstanding - and cheap. That's because this is where the locals dine. We had to wait for a table. We had fish, and they brought us a whole fish to confirm - that looked like it was caught an... More

A local suggest this place like the best restaurant ever...so really high hopes. We went here for lunch nice and professional service, so difficult to find in Italy, and nice menu but no so good for wine list. We got tuna carpaccio and was good like my bottarga pasta and the swordfish little bit disappointed from the parmigiana. Overpriced like... More

One of the best meals we have ever had. Amazingly fresh fish from sushi to pasta and grilled fish. Absolutely stunning. Octopus carpaccio should not be missed.

Please just go and have a meal here. The only regret we have is not going back here for a second meal. The seafood pasta is to die for. Great service too. Love love love it and can't wait to dine here again the next time we are back in Sicily.

We are currently staying at Hotel Villa Paradiso, which is a great B&B in Taormina (I will do a separate review), and when we asked about an authentic Sicilian restaurant where the locals eat, they recommended 4 restaurants, however they emphatically spoke highly of L'Arco Dei Cappuccini. Again, while we were shopping in the beautiful town of Taormina, we received... More

As a family we remembered this restaurant fondly for it's good and fresh fish. We returned to Taormina after some years and did not hesitate to book this venue for a family get together again. I wish we would have not done this as it destroyed entirely the fond memories we had. The fish and menu including wine list was... More
