A completely enjoyable evening with warm and friendly atmosphere and delicious fresh cooked Sicilian food. Family owned and operated. Recommend seafood risotto and meatballs in lemon leaves.

Taormina was the last stop of my three weeks in Italy. I might well be a bit critical in my rating. I was there twice mainly because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and that the restaurant was in the vicinity of my hotel! In my first visit, I had the seafood spaghetti. The pasta tasted good and the bread was... More

Recommended by our hotel, made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived, a great menu and attentive staff. Dined on both the nights we were in Taormina.

Went to this place on our first trip back in 2014 and enjoyed it so much we just had to go again on our first night in Taormina this time around. Well it didn't let us down, great food, good wine, great hosts and another enjoyable evening. So much so that we booked it for our last night too !... More

My wife and I visited in the last week of October - didn't need to book. Very friendly welcome and service. We ate Gnocci, pasta, meatballs, lamb cutlets, lemon sorbet and profiteroles all with generous servings of the one by the glass - finished off with a coffee and all for around €110 - which we both thought was excellent...

From the moment we were greeted at the door until we left, this was a perfect dining experience. For starters we shared eggplant parmigiana, a mixed salad, and an octopus dish. Each was excellent. The wine was "d'A" a red wine from the Etna region. Again perfect. Our main courses were a filetto (steak) with a red wine sauce, lamb... More

From the moment we walked in to the restaurant we felt at home. The owners and staff are all super friendly, helpful and efficient. We ate here twice and both meals were excellent with great house wines in a great ambience.

We ate here on two of our three nights in Taormina (and wished we had eaten there the third!). The cuisine is outstanding and the service very personal.I am a gluten-intolerant vegan and the proprietor and chef went to great trouble to give me delicious meals on both occasions.

Very friendly owner speaks good English and was helpful concerning gluten-free choices (not just pasta). But my meatballs were rather dry, and the whole meal for two was €95 which for two courses and a glass of wine each is steep even by local standards. Buy dishes to share - there's plenty of food.
