We shared pizza and salad for lunch. Portions were large so we had plenty of food! We ate on the patio which gave us an opportunity to do some people watching. Recommend for a quick and inexpensive lunch.

Return visit after a great lunch. Evening Dinner menu is even more extensive, lots of traditional dishes, great quality food cooked fresh. Daily fresh fish options cooked and prepared to our preference. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Just off the main highstreet but close enough to still be a part of the people watching that is Taormina. Even have a... More

My husband and I just stumbled across this place are just walking down a side street looking for somewhere to eat. They were very friendly, helpful and really on the ball with gluten free. The food was really good and you could mix and match most things on the menu if you did not want to go with the usual... More

This restaurant is a lovely place to eat with great food and very friendly staff. We ate here on 3 occasions during our stay and each time was to the same high standard.

Very spacious, comfortable restaurant in the center. Waiters are companionable, and the food is great. The best minestrone soup I've ever tasted, and we also liked the seafood spagetti and risotto. Prices are reasonable, between 10-16€ for the main course. You should give it a try for a relaxed dinner.

Came here based on the strength of the reviews. Overall the food was good & the cost on par with the prices you'd expect in the area. The waiters were really funny, friendly & attentive....5 stars for them! The lobster dish was sold to me as one of the day's 'specials' but in reality I suspect the had some stock... More
