This restaurant was recommended by a member of staff at our hotel so thank you! A hidden gem of a restaurant. Up steps in the narrowest of streets to reveal a lovely rooftop terrace. Food was amazing. Staff were lovely. Best meal in Sicily. Loved it.

Beautiful restaurant - reserve in advance and request terrace dining. The view is stunning overlooking the rooftops. Varied menu, everything is delicious and of high quality but not pretentious. Romantic evening but also a place for dinner with friends and family. Relaxed and peaceful vibe :)

You would never know this place is here unless you read about or were told...up 20 stairs in a tiny passageway off the main via is the most perfect Sicilian restaurant you will encounter. The meal started with a fabulous amuse Bouche, a fabulous taste of Sicilian wine, and the presentation of each entree was better than many of Chicago's... More

Eating at Vicolo Stretto was not just any meal, it was an experience! From start to finish, the food, service, and atmosphere was top notch! The cuperto (cover charge) was a bit steep, however, it was given right back with the "complimentary" soup, bread, and dessert wine. Considering the quality of the food, the prices were comparable. The octopus salad... More

The best restaurant in Sicily. Our highlight of holidays! My friends and I visit Taormina in April and returned in June again. We fall in love with Vicolo Stretto. We took a cooking class and the owner of this magical place Massimo took us to the local market and we cooked with truly a talented chef. Had so much fun.... More

Food consistently good and lovely atmosphere. Their homemade desert is to die for and the service and pace of the courses was excellent. Great place for couples quite intimate and they do cater for children which you would expect the Sicilians to do

We stumbled upon this one when walking up the main drag on our first night in Taormina. We looked up tripadvisor and it suggested it was worth a go. It was really busy (Friday evening) but they managed to squeeze us in. Fantastically unstated entrance. The food was excellent however the service could be described as efficient but not overly...

We were curious about this very tiny stairway and decide to go look. What an AMAZING surprise! A server updating a sign encouraged us to go look. The host at the front lobby was very receptive of us and wanted to show us more of the restaurant. We looked at the menu and decided to take a table. The service... More

We had family recommend a restaurant in a very narrow street. We found it and went there without a booking. Our table didn't get a view but the setting was great on a lovely balcony. The service is exceptional. Lovely little touches like a complimentary soup and desert wine. In fact I saw people that didn't order desert get a... More
