Great family run restaurant. Food, and service very good. The proprieters took great care to ensure we were happy. They suggested what was best, helped choose good wine and made us feel spoiled.

Great food and reasonable price. I wasn't keen on vegetable soup. Just because of beans and chick peas not the actual soup. Waiter took it away and brought another starter to try. Great idea.

Evening two and dined here having made a reservation the day before. Another lovely evening with super food and all at reasonable prices. Very attentive staff, all having fun, with the food typically traditional. The chickpea starter is a lovely appetiser and the Sicilian starter a must. Ravioli and a lovely peppercorn steak complimented by a bottle of wine chosen... More

My husband loved his ravioli. I had the fish of the day. Loved the sauce of tomato, olive, and capers. Didn't love the fish itself but that was... More

We ate here only last night after reading the reviews. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. We even had a a complementary extra appetiser. I would recommend this resturant as it has a lovely atmosphere.

This restaurant is so good we went there twice during our stay in Taormina. Family run business with reasonable prices and nice atmosphere. We had to wait for our table outside so they asked us to sit inside until it was ready and they gave us complimentary appetizers and wine. The pasta and seafood was fresh the dishes were simple...
