Oh my! The deli board of meat and cheese was amazing. The server was fantastic, explaining it all to you and how one should best proceed through the mountains of fantastic meats and cheeses. All with delicious Sicilian wine. Our only negatives were the cramped...nature of the space, I guess a necessary evil, and the awkward location of the restroom. That and we couldn't eat it all, so there's leftovers in my hotel fridge for tonight!More

It was the most delicious, fresh and quality food we have had in our trip to Sicily. Outstanding service. You need a reservation. A must on a visit to Taormina.

We have been for dinner thanks to the very good reviews. Place Is a cheese shop with few tables inside. Menu is almost fixed with cheese and cured meat. Some additional cooked dishes. In my opinion very overvalued. We liked the cooked dishes. Cheeses are...not so special apart from ragusano. Cured meat are not local . Prices are ok. Wine list very limited and no house wine available. In Sicily it is possible to do better. But we are in Taormina….More

The friendly welcome, the premises, the wine and especially the food are without a doubt worth 5 out of 5 points. Authentic Sicilian delicacies for relatively little money. We will be back!

We had lunch on arrival in Taormina and we were very satisfied with both the food and service offered. Great selection of wine as well. The server recommended their main item which is a variety of cold cuts, cheeses and local delicacies. It was well...presented and very fulfilling. We did not manage to eat it all between two :) Highly recommended.More

I don't usually write reviews but this place was absolutely fantastic. Tasting platters with delicious local food and great Sicilian wines...what more could you wish for? Everything from the tasting platters you can buy it from their store and I assure you, it's hard to...leave empty-handed.More

This is simply must try at Taormina. Sicilian plate experience and groceries experience. Wonderful place, wonderful food, wonderful owner. This is not subjective - do not trust 1-2 star reviews about this place.
