Came here with family, everything was good except for the fact that I was rushed by an entitled fart of a waiter, whom in italian kept on asking me if I was ready to order... literally every 10 seconds while reading menu. Thankfully only coming here once in my life.

We had the best pasta carbonara here! I've tried carbonara in many cities around Italy, this one is the best! We went back there 2 more times during our stay!

We had the most delicious lunch here. The mushroom risotto was to die for!! Lovely little gem to stop at. The wine was exceptional glass of wine and watched the world go by. Belissimmo 😊

Nice venue which was let down by poor service and poor quality food! After mixing up our order it took an eternity for our food to be delivered, I think they forgot about us. This was particularly frustrating as we only had a short amount of time in Taormina. Food was nothing to write about either. There are other restaurants... More

It was great to be personally invited when beautiful restaurants beacon on every corner! Lovely outside spot under humming fan, free Wi-Fi, cold beer and good food; what else the thirsty tourist can dream of? Service was fast and friendly, bathroom was clean and nobody mind an extra "service charge" of over $20. When in Rome..., well that was Sicily!... More

This had the feel of an authentic Italian family restaurant. There was lots of dishes to choose from and we were not disappointed. Staff were excellent and 60 years of being in business was evident. They did not have the wine we requested but their offered alternative was fantastic. We both had pasta dishes for main course and they were... More

The staff very welcoming, kind, funny, very professional. Nice live guitar music. The food was amazing, and the service was very quick. They are on the main street in Taormina, but the prices are not high. We really loved to have a dinner here.

The location of the restaurant is great, right in the main street Corso Humberto. The prices are what you would expect for a place in this area. I had a gnocchi which was on of the best pastas of the trip

My choice was not correct; should've heard the waitress. Do not order cod, it's nor woth paying the menu price (expensive). Desserts were neither made nor presented as one can expect. Confirms the fame of an ordinary touristic destination. Better go to not so exposed eating places
