The host of our vacation rental recommended this spot and made the reservations for us. We were greeted very warmly and ate some of the best seafood and pasta of our entire trip to Sicily here. The food is not fancy but it is representative of the coastal area, fresh, and extremely well prepared. The service was attentive without being... More

This restaurant was recommended by our accommodation owner as a favourite of hers, not too fancy or too 'touristy' but popular with the locals. We arrived at 7pm and the service was quick; within half an hour the place had filled (always a good sign) but the pace of service seemed to pick up rather than to slow down. We... More

Top quality Taormina restaurant with a largely Italian clientele. Excellent plates of ceviche and phenomenally tasty dishes of seafood and seasonal vegetables. Save space for desert, the semifreddo and panna cotta dishes are to die for. Good list of local wines including some tasty desert accompaniments. All staff friendly, helpful and highly professional at all times. Even though we were... More

We loved this restaurant and went twice during our week in Taormina. All the food we selected was delicious, particularly the grilled fish. The pasta was also divine and the service was great too.

We were recommended to this restaurant by the hotel and boy it did not disappoint. Service was friendly and attentive, food was excellent, especially the fresh fish. We ate there every night (3) and it just got better. You can order half portions and the waiters will always cooperate. Super

I hate writing bad reviews but, however good the food is, bad service destroys the whole meal. Initially I wanted to have the Melanzana which is an aubergine bake with mozzarella and tomato sauce but the waiter said that this would take over 25 minutes and there was only one chef. Really!? 25 minutes to make this when all other... More

Our guesthouse recommended this place for seafood & it was spectacular food, one of the most memorable seafood dinners in years of travel thru Italy & the best in Sicily. The food & wine knowledge, passion & care of the staff was stellar.
