I think It’s the best place all over the world! I visited it firstly in 2022 and have waited for this moment to taste their zuppa di mare again today in 2024! I’m in absolute love with this restaurant, their service, how lovely they are...in communication with guests, how they love what they do. This inspired me! I want to back here again and again! Highly recommend! Guys, YOU ARE THE BEST! Grazie❤️More

We dined here every night as no other restaurant in the whole area came close to service quality and value for money. Franco Adil and Anna looked after us with 5 star service. Will be dining there next year also.

For our first night of our holiday, we chose this ‘family-style’ Italian restaurant for dinner. A long day started in the UK at 02:00, and nearly 5 miles walking in airports and around Taormina. So, we needed somewhere very local to our accommodation. This restaurant...looked good: it was busy and bustling, having a ‘feel-good’ factor about it. There was a free table, so we asked, and within minutes we were sat down and studying the menus. We discussed wine with a senior waiter and ordered a Grillo (a widely grown local grape that is very tolerant of high temperatures). The wine produced from Grillo grapes is dry with good and delicate fruit notes. This wine soon became our ‘go-to’ wine on this holiday. We also ordered a large bottle of natural mineral water. We both started with Prosciutto and Melon, which was excellent and refreshing. The ham was really lean and soft and the melon was fresh, ripe and juicy. A really lovely start to our meal. For our mains it just had to be pizza … come-on we were in Italy! This is ‘the’ plate that you just have to try, to see how different it is from the junk that is served up by ‘Papadomhutexpress’. What we had here was so very different in so very many ways. It was called ‘Fantasia’: Pomodoro, Mozzarella, Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano, Rucola (Tomato, Mozzarella, Parma ham, Parmesan, Rocket). The dough was so light and soft, and the rocket was a wonderful foil to the lovely stringy Mozzarella and light Parma ham. This was a wonderful pizza and it filled-us-up so much that dessert was just not an option. That was a shame because my Partner would have enjoyed the Cannolo (one of her favourites here, as it is so fabulous in Italy, but very rarely good in the UK). I would have had the Tiramisu (one of my favourite desserts). At the end of our meal we were given a Limoncello, and we left happy, but so full! All the tasty food we had eaten throughout the day, and particularly that evening at this wonderful restaurant. Everything was right here, the atmosphere, and the service. Being in a busy restaurant is in-itself rewarding; because it is an affirmation that everyone is visibly enjoying the food too!More

We had a great tasting meal, pizza, anti pasto salads and bruschetta. Taste was excellent, plenty for the 3 of us. Beer was cold and service friendly. Would go again, but leaving Taormina tomorrow

Stayed in Taormina 4 nights eating at restaurants for lunches and dinner. By far the best food and service all done with a smile. This fairly small restaurant has character and is situated 1 minute walk from the main Porta Messina junction. Excellent menu at...good prices. Thoroughly recommend a visit.More

Just outside the gate from Corso Umburto lies this very unassuming restaurant. Much less touristy with a mix of locals and tourists this restaurant is well worth the visit. The service was fast and friendly, but they certainly do not rush you. We had mixed...bruschetta with the ones with eggplant simply outstanding. I was into comfort food and had the meatballs but my wife ordered the mixed fish appetizer which could easily feed 2. You name a type of shellfish plus other fish and it was there. She loved it. I saw many people with pizza's as well so the menu really runs the Gamut. We have more time here so probably will be back.More

We were a party of 8 so I made reservations. The food and service was excellent. This is a little local trattoria type where locals and visitors go. We enjoyed this restaurant so much we made reservations for another night we were in town.

My wife and I had dinner at that restaurant and truly enjoyed it. The food was excellent and the service of high quality. It's located on a busy street but it doesn't matter much when you sit inside, to reduce car noise and benefit from...the AC on very hot summer days. Strongly recommended.More

We visited this restaurant twice during ourstay and both, times the food and service were excellent. We majored on seafood and pasta and were pleased with the quality of everything we tried - the spaghetti alle cozze (with mussels) was exceptional, with flavoursome pasta. Local...white wine was very good and reasonably priced. Well worth a try!More
