We really enjoyed in all the restaurants in Taormina, but this one was a waste of money! I've ordered a bottle of wine and the lady who first served us came to the table saying ' we don't have that one so I have chosen one for you' SORRY??? ok, I didn't complain because I didn't want to destroy a...

The waitors really seemed to enjoy themselves, there was some nice live Music (not too loud), and the food was very tasty. Would love to come back to taste more from the menu!

Cute little cafe/restaurant. Ordered a few snacks to keep us going, great bruschetta and a vegetarian selection platter. Table next door ordered main dishes and some of the fish looked incredible. Quite small outside and got knocked a few times by passing waiters.

The worst restaurant in our 12 day trip around Sicily. Small portions, terrible value for money. The pasta tasted like something you would get in a cheap snackbar & the antipasti (we ate a combo of olives, pecorino (no sign of any pecorino taste) and sun dried tomatoes were far from tasty. Would recommend everybody to stay away as far... More

Good location. Lovely friendly staff. Food was averagely ok. but it's on the main drag and the prices reflect this. Wildly overpriced for what you get. Move ten yards up any side street and get the same quality for half the price. In particular the drinks were a total ripoff

The prices look ok until you get your bill and find out that the beer is €7!!! Wines are expensive enough and 5 euros a head for a restaurant like that is a joke. Food quality was very poor from tasteless escalopes to watery carbonara. The staff were friendly. Stay away!

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!
