We had dinner here this evening after going to the restaurant across the road the previous night. We saw how busy it got and thought it must be good. It didn’t disappoint and far exceeded the hype of the restaurant across the road. 3 delicious...More

Food was exceptional. I had the lemon pasta. They got a new table for us as we hadn't booked. Would recommend for the food more than any other aspects of it. But a fun relaxed place for supper.

This restaurant is simply amazing! So many incredible pasta dishes with seafood and local products it was so hard to pick! A lot of locals seems to dine here and you won’t get in without an advance reservation. Try the lemon and pistachio pasta!

I really wanted to like this restaurant, the food was great but the service was the worst I’ve experienced, don’t go here there are so many better places to visit in town where you’re made to to feel welcome. Baldy - what’s with the attitude?!

My husband and I visited Malvasia on our last evening in Taormina. It was very close to our apartment, which was convenient. Malvasia was recommended to us by a local resident and we were told to pre book, which we did. We really enjoyed our...More

the appetizer of chickpea flour fritters were the best part of the meal. Unfortunately the bread was stale and the pastas were somewhat unseasoned and mediocre at best. Not a bad meal but nothing special. Would not go back
