In a country that rarely serves a disappointing dish, this was a surprisingly unenjoyable meal. It was mostly reinterpretations of classic dishes gone awry. We found ourselves wishing we had just gone for a pizza.

Up until we visited Le Naumanchie we'd been very disappointed with the food in our randomly selected restaurants in Taormina. The setting was lovely, we had great service and the food was fantastic - thank you TA for pointing us in the right direction.

My boyfriend and I visited after we had read the great reviews on here. The location was great and we really enjoyed sitting outside. I'm not a big fan of bringing bread out in a paper bag. Very noisy to get into and felt like we were eating in a cafe. Accidentally my boyfriends starter arrived and was incorrect. Whilst... More

We stepped out of the busy streets into this little peace of heaven. Set alongside a Roman aquaduct it was idyllic. Small , intimate with impeccable service from friendly staff. Excellent food, lovely cutlery and plates, little touches you wouldn't get anywhere else - bread in paper bags - and wonderful sparkling water ( I never rate water normally!) We... More

On our last visit to Taormina we couldn't get in as it was fully reserved, so I was determined to ensure we reserved a table this time. Imagine my disappointment when we turned up during the day to discover it closed! I turned to the Internet and placed a reservation via the restaurant web site. Francesco promptly responded and confirmed... More

Another good find thanks to TA! Set in a side street just off the Corso, a warm welcome, and some lovely touches - freshly baked rolls and grissini served in a bag, to dip with special olive oil and flavoured salt. The food was extremely good, good wine selection. A parting gift of home-made meringue. We ate there twice during... More

A beautiful setting away from all the tourist haunts, complimented by exceptional service, attention to detail and amazing food. Staff were knowledgeable and accommodated our dining needs, the food and wine.......first class, a must for anyone that appreciates the finer things in life though at the same time as with most Sicilian restaurants, not paying exorbitant prices. Perhaps the only... More

We were looking for a quieter restaurant in which to celebrate our wedding anniversary and ate on the tables at the Naumachie side of the restaurant. The service was excellent as was the food and we had an excellent overall experience.

Thank nyalta
