Unfortunately my face is beginning to look like a pizza; red, lumpy and fat. However, when in Italy Pizza is one of the more cost effective ways of filling one's belly and so the diet will commence next week and I confidently predict 2017 will be pizza free. Taormina mid week in winter at 2pm is what I might politely... More

We had 3 nights here. We ate at Varo twice, having been referred by an Italian friend. Staff and owner are so attentive, food choices wonderful and very fresh. We loved the asparagus soup, the thin pizzas, the antipasti tray looked scrumptious though we didn't taste & the house wine well above USA restaurant house wine. Lovely place with a... More

We stopped by this restaurant on our last night in Taormina as we were looking for a place a bit off the main street. They have a fantastic patio set up in the courtyard just off the main street, which you can easily locate (it is well signed). The pizza we had was DELICIOUS!! My husband and myself both thoroughly... More

These guys put so much cheese on their pizzas. But if you like that you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is nice, in a square off the main part of Taormina but well signposted. Calamari was nice and served with a small side of vegetables. Good but nothing amazing.

Great pizza, nice place in quiet area, everything ok, but 2 euro per person for "visit" is too much.

This restaurant has the most amazing Pizza's the pasta dishes were lovely too, salads fresh and tasty, it is slightly of the beaten track, but there are signs on the main stretch and it is worth the walk up the steps to reach the restaurant.

We were given the name of the restaurant from the owner of the apartment we were staying at and were thrilled with the experience. It's a quaint Sicilean family run place and the food and service were impeccable.
