Lovely atmospheric pizza restaurant just off the main thoroughfare and in a charming piazza. Delicious pizza, good wine recommendations and attentive service

It is just around the corner of the very busy main arteries of Taormina, so it is nice to be seated on a little piazza. The food was ok (classical menu), the waiters were a bit arrogant - they clearly had seen too many tourists in this season already.

Horrible service and management. A 2.5 hour supper. Allows smoking. So called manager said it was busy...deal with it. Food was decent but certainly not worth the wait.

Where do I begin. We are a family of 4. They sat us in the upper level terrace. Quite nice, open air, fans running to keep you cool. That's all I have nice to say. The rest is negative. We each ordered a pasta and we all shared two secundi. We weren't greeted by our server for 15 min, then... More

We had one of our best meals in Taormina here, the risotto was superb, the pizza perfect and our daughter had a gluten free pasta which she polished off in no time. Great service, good value and the terrace is lovely too. Worth a visit.

We ordered pasta as we were sure that Sicily was the place to enjoy a home cooked pasta dish. Unfortunately the dishes were too salty or had no taste whatsoever. The pizza was good however. The dishes seemed like they were prepared in a micro oven, as they were very hot in the middle but cold on the outside. We... More

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
