This place serves amazing pizza and is very reasonably priced (both drinks and food). Very informal setting just off a busy street but this makes for fun people watching! Service was fast and friendly.

The pizza was okay not much topping. Pretty lame. Plus they added a 4 euro cover for two people what a joke. I have never seen this anywhere before. We are v disappointed.

Me and my husband experienced the very best cooking class. We visited the local food market and got a lot of interesting information about typical Sicily/Messina ingredients. We made our own pasta, traditional way. And also prepared some fish and vegetables dishes and of course some sauce for the pasta. We also had the fortune to make our own pizza.... More

Wow, what a fantastic restaurant! Great value for money and incredible pizza, especially will the wholemeal dough. Each time I go, I try a different pizza and so far haven't been disappointed! The aphrodite is particularly delicious and very different to any pizza I could dream of finding back in the UK. The restaurant is spacious with both an indoor... More

I excuse myself right in the beginning, because this post will be a little longer than usual. But my situation is unusual too. I arrived to Taormina on 19 July with my boyfriend and I am still here, though we did not plan to stay that long. My boyfriend was taken to hospital with the ambulance last Thursday. On Thursday...

Half decent pizza and salad, probably one of the more touristy places located at the end of the strip. Customer service was very authentic and laid back.

After parking in a garage at the bottom of a hill leading to the tourist district, it was time to find a restaurant. We had been wanting pizza and this looked like the right place and it was outdoors. We looked through 3 pages of the different types of pizza, but none of them had either sausage or even hamburg....
