We had a meal here one evening and it is obviously popular with the rich and famous from the pictures on the walls. The food was good but there is better in Taormina. We had one very nice waiter but really didn't feel well looked after like we did elsewhere. The pizza was really nice and the setting is lovely.... More

We had a late lunch here prior to an evening tour when a lot of other places nearby were shut until 6pm. Other tables were taken including a party of 12 and we had a good meal, nice cold draught beer and enjoyed ourselves. The grilled veal chops were large, tender, and perfectly cooked, and served with spinach and sauté... More

We both thoroughly enjoyed the food here. Very popular place and lucky to get a seat. The staff and service was really good too. Food beautifully presented. Our waiter was really friendly and recommended some fantastic wine to go with our meal, so much so we drank two bottles instead of one!! Only wish I could remember what it was... More

Had to wait for a table... But that was not a problem... We enjoyed looking at the hundreds of photographs of VIP guests... Including Robert De Nero. We has pizza... Very good. Service was good. Atmosphere was excellent. Well worth a visit. Highly recommended.

This was good thin crust Italian style pizza. Price was Taormina style at 14 euro per pizza. House wine was 17 euro. Clientele were all sicilian even with the prices so the rest of the menu must be pretty good as well. Staff were rushed and stiff. We will continue our search for the perfect pizzeria in Taormina.

Great meal in a lively piazza opposite the bam bar. Portions a fair size as I always find portions in Italy quite small. Good service.

Food is excellent and service is great. The caponata was amazing. Location is hard to beat. I strongly recommend it. Book in advance as it's always full.
