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

I was a bit sceptical after reading some of the reviews but can honestly say I have no complaints. The pasta with prawns was delicious and the fruit platter was excellent. The staff were friendly and everything was served with a smile Well worth a try Barry

The place looks nice but expensive and they also charge 5 euro a head service charge. The bruschetta was the most expensive and worst we had in our 2 week holiday I had lasagne which was very small portion also the most expensive and no taste.. My wife had a rissotto which was almost unedible. You pay for the location... More

Situated along the Corso Umberto, we ate here on a Saturday night and watched the wedding parties go by ! The staff are very friendly, the portions are very big, and the food is of excellent quality. Our grilled swordfish steaks were extremely tasty and absolutely huge.

Got wrong dish the first time. The second time the prawns had to much shell. Not peeled. Not recommended. Too many good places to eat in taormina!

Restaurant is on main thoroughfare so good for people watching and a good guitarist playing. Food was very average and courses came far too quickly. Staff were good but as there are so many restaurants can't recommend this one and was expensive.

Thank Lyn R
