We had an outstanding meal at the restaurant. The dishes are both beautifully presented and delicious, with fresh ingredients and local flavors. Our best meal in Sicily.

My girlfriend and I have eaten here for the past 2 nights, the food is amazing, we had the Lamb the first night which was cooked to perfection as was the Fillet of Beef the second night. The menu selection is minimal which is perfect as I am always suspicious of a very extensive menu!!. The service is very good... More

Not many people in November in Taormina but still a good restaurant with Sicilian cuisine. Good service and quiet place. Red wine by the glass really good, but still a huge choice of wine! Not many dessert to choose from, but all really good.

We loved this back street restaurant. We ate here twice during our four nights in Taormina. They were able to accommodate my food intolerances and the food was very fresh. Loved the fish with fennel salad, the octopus and the poached pears. Would definitely return. You need to book as it gets full quickly.

We went to this restaurant based on the recommendations of previous visitors. We were not disappointed. We both started with linguine ai finghi which was delicious as were our main courses of local fish and seared tuna. Outstanding quality. Definitely worth a visit. If we had a minor concern it would be that the prices were slightly higher than we... More

Our Italian host, Loris, recommended Vineria Modi for our last night of a week's stay and he couldn't have chosen better. The intimate dining room seats twenty, of which four were British, six German and ten Italian, always a good sign to my mind. The food was exquisite, the wine the best we'd had in Sicily and the service attentive... More

Wonderful greeting. Great and personal service. Nothing too difficult. Sat outside enjoying the air. Salmon starter in citrus/ginger cream to due for. Seriously a beautiful set of flavours. Local fish in a balsamic jeu, with salad. Etna red & white splendid accompaniment. Grillo & Alicante grapes. Loved it. Coming back tomorrow night!

We had read the positive reviews on TA and on our first night as we were exploring Taormina, we happened to walk right to this restaurant. Staff was friendly and helpful and after telling them the type of wine we liked, we tried our first bottle of local wine that was awesome. We both ate fish that was cooked perfectly... More

As we were looking for this restaurant, based on TripAdvisor reviews, we passed several others that looked great - fortunately we preserved until we reached this exquisite restaurant. The food, service, wine list were all outstanding. I ordered the special - Tagliatelle with mushrooms & my husband had the lamb ragu, which were wonderful. It's a very small space -... More
