The restaurant interior is very nice and has a few tables outside both at the front and the rear as well as tables on a terrace upstairs. Food and staff were all fine but the night we went it was very quiet, which was a shame. Passed near it at other times and there seemed to be more people dining.... More

Having read the other reviews, I was sold. I was a little wary how empty it was on a Saturday night at 8:45pm given the reviews. But it did not disappoint. The service was top notch. The food light and delicious with perfect fine dining proportions and presentation. It was lovely to be away from the crowds - great for... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the waiter at Ristorante Mamma Rosa & very pleased we were! Don't expect the usual large menu with pizzas, pasta, salads, fish etc etc. This is more a kin to a contemporary fine dining experience, at incredible prices. We had Carpaccio of Beef & vegetables to start, they were both sublime. Main courses of... More

Great food. Great setting. Great service. Great food. This really is a top restaurant, which gives to you, all could ask for a romantic night out. We visited this restaurant, 2 years previously and loved it! The standards have not dropped

We received first class service at this lovely restaurant,excellent food,and the meal was made very special by extraordinary attention you detail. The price was also quite reasonable for the quality. To cap the experience, we also received three complimentary items ...a mini omelette, tiny puddings,and a liqueur.

We visited this lovely restaurant on our first night in Taormina, and we just went to Le Naumachie again for the second time. The food is excellent, and the staff is very professional and friendly (they also recognized us from our last visit). We will definitely come back again, as dining here is a real experience, with food full of... More

Off the beaten path, but well worth it. Came with our two daughters, who have food allergies (gluten, nuts and lupin). Staff very friendly and accommodating. Had gluten-free bread for us. Caprese salads for appetizers were delicious. Gluten-free pasta pomodoro for one of my daughters was the best she ever had...sauce was so fresh. Pasta Carbonara was very tasty, and... More

We had a really excellent dinner at Le Naumachie. Located away from the crowds down an atmospheric side street, the service was warm and friendly, and the food was what it claimed to be - Sicilian with a twist - including perhaps the best ever tiramisu (I've had a few). Clearly very popular, we booked and ate at the earlier... More

Having been twice before I was expecting a combination of modern cuisine, exciting ingredients and attentive service. Sorry to say I didn't get any of these. Staff appeared to be overwhelmed by the number of customers so basics such as drinks and bread were slow in arriving. Food was palatable but frankly dull for the price.

Easily our best meal- food, service, atmosphere- on our two-week tour of Europe. Sit in the back alley, very quiet and romantic away from the crowds. You will not be disappointed! Thanks for a memorable evening!
