Unfortunately both my wife... More

We cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. We ate here last year, and had to come back again and ate here every night. Excellent food - amazing fish, shellfish and pasta dishes, along with meat dishes. Fabulous service and very reasonably priced. Not to be missed.

Phenomenal experience all around. The servers were excellent, and helped make some great recommendations. The gnocchi was absolute perfection, and I couldn't recommend it more. The raw fish of the day was incredible, and about as fresh as it gets. The squid ink pasta was okay, but I wouldn't have ordered it again. The server also brought out a homemade... More

The food at l'Incontro was very good but the prices are ridiculously expensive, including more than €2 cover charge per person.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We did not have a reservation, but as soon as a table opened they served us.

We have choosen from the Tipadvisor because from the street can't see that is a perfect restaurant. The waiters and the chef were very kind and helpful. The service was quick despite the place was full. The meals were delicious. There were lot of sea food and seasonal offers. It is good choice. Enjoy.

My husband and I had our last dinner in Taormina at L'Incontro. Very friendly reception and good service throughout the evening. The food was very good, mixed salad and fresh pasta with sausage for me and fresh pasta with Sicilian pesto and the beef meatballs on lemon leaves for my husband. They have a good selection of Mount Etna wines.... More

Excellent menu, outstanding chef, food was some of the best we had in Sicily. Not your common Italian fare, the seafoods were spectacular. The owner made us feel as though we were old friends.
