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.

The restaurant is tucked away in a lovely secluded courtyard just a few steps up from the main drag in Taormina. Very relaxed and unpretentious. The food was tasty and good value. Recommended.

Great food and wines just a few stairs away from the touristic street where pushy waiters try to get you to eat in their place. So this place without any of these pushy guys is great if you don't like the hassle and just want good food and wine at very reasonable prices. We were the only tourists there. The... More
