Great location, drinks, music and food. Highly recommended if you go to Taormina. The location is like taken from a movie.

Very nice spot. Cool atmosphere. Terrible service! The staff basically ignored us. Never came over to the table. Refused to give a glass of ice. Monday night, very busy. Staff couldn't handle crowd.

Great atmosphere in a garden. Very good Aperol Spriz. Good location not far from Greek Theatre. This place is ideal for lunch or just a drink. Simply decorated outdoor restaurant. Staff was very nice and service was good.

Amazing food at decent prices. All pasta home cooked - it's a bit off the Main Street but definitely worth finding. Can sit in the courtyard or out on the steps with local produce, wines and craft beers. Service is incredibly friendly too

Just off the main drag to Greek threatre we found this delightful little place. The food the best we've had so far on our trip. Great fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. So tasty. Staff were really friendly, speak fluent English. Great setting, little outdoor courtyard....More
