A good restaurant, well-situated, good service and very good food. It's good to see a slightly different take on tradition. My pear and walnut pizza was rather nice indeed and the antipasto misto del casa, always a good measure of any Italian restaurant's nouse, was excellent.

Evening four. Visited here because of all the other positive comments. We typically walk the main Corso but so glad previous comments on here made us look right! Up a few stairs and into a small plaza with many seats and a brilliant ambiance with many diners eating. Such attentive service, particularly in recommending a good accompanying wine, and beautiful... More

Our favourite restaurant in Taormina, beautifully lit at night time with a gorgeous setting, romantic and quiet with fantastic food and service. My only gripe is that the chairs are uncomfortable.

We went to this restaurant 3 times during our stay and had a fantastic meal each staff. The staff cannot do enough for you and the pizzas are easily the best in Taormina. The tiramisu is also fabulous. Highly recommended

It was our first night in Taormina and as we were tired with all the travelling we didn't want to spend too much time walking around looking for somewhere to eat so this was pretty much the first place we came across. Very good choice as it was set in a quieter street rather than one where there were lots... More

Hidden away up some steps (like so many good places to eat in Taormina). Tables are set up outside in a little courtyard. English is spoken. The antipasti plates are huge (one between two is ample) . Wine available by the carafe - local wine and very drinkable. Seafood spaghetti was lovely. plenty of seafood and loads of parmesan available.... More

Great setting, lovely food and wonderful service. We found this restaurant in a quiet part just off the main drag. It is set in a small square with tables outside.

The pizza was terrible, limp crusted and certainly not made in a wood fired oven. It was overpriced and greasy. The people never came out to check on us at all. The guy sat in the bar talking to his friends. There was nothing good about this meal when you're in a place where you can get excellent food. Just... More

After checking two other well rated restaurants in Taormina that were closed unfortunately we ended up here. The pizza wasn't bad but not good either. Wine was bad and service not very special. If possible I would recommend to search for another place to eat.

Bad weather drove us into this drab little place during a recent visit to Taormina. It's fair to say that the meal was by far the worst we had during our 2 weeks in Sicily. Stodge on a grand scale. And some of the most sullen, disengaged staff I've ever encountered. Frankly, I'm astonished at the number of positive reviews... More
