Went to this restaurant in the basis of some excellent reviews on here. Sadly found it rather disappointing. My main course of lamb was good well cooked and nicely presented but nothing outstanding. My wife had the salmon from the specials bird and it was small dry and unappetising. Service throughout was poor and arrogant. We have no plans to... More

We had a quick dinner here as unfortunately we food not book and the restaurant was fully booked. As they had a table empty for 1.5 hrs, they kindly gave us a choice - and we are glad we took the table. I think they only do 1 cover a night, so do book in advance (don't let the empty... More

We visited Sicily on vacation with friends. This restaurant is a very good choice, right in the center of Taormina. We're there for dinner and we choose each one a different type of pasta. Mine was macaroni with lamb ragu. The food was fantastic accompanied by a Nero D'Avola Syrah. Very busy in summer. You better make a reservation.

Delicious! More of a gourmet experience and limited menu than most restaurants in Taormina. Everything was divine. Delicious tender lamb. An amazing salmon special. And the deconstructed Cannoli was a perfect end to the meal. Great wine list too!

Superb technical execution, attractive plates and truely tasty. The octopus was outstanding - great texture and flavour. Very impressed. - they excel both at sea and on... More

My boyfriend and I are big foodies, especially when it comes to dining out. We had been quite disappointed with some of our restaurant choices in Taormina. After some searching online, we located this hidden gem and we were so glad that we did! The quality of the food in this restaurant easily meets the standard that you would expect... More

Service is excellent. We had the salmon and gondo fish secondi which were perfect. My daughters had the lamb rague macaroni and lamb chop which were savoury and perfectly cooked. Had an excellent Etna red. This was our best meal in Taormina.

This was our favorite meal in Sicily. The menu may be short but every bite of every dish we had was incredible. The young female chef is really talented. Salmon tartare with coconut and the appetizer of cod with potatoes were particularly outstanding, each combining unexpected flavors for a delicious result. And what a wine selection! Having so many unusual... More

This was a nice restaurant for an evening meal with outdoor seating. The food was really good (in particular the starters and the macaroni main), the wine was delicious too. The restaurant seemed very popular, so I suggest you book ahead.

Thank Wilks14
