Excellent pizza

This nice Pizzeria is next to Piazza Duomo and was a good choice. The eggplant parmigiana was ok but the wood oven pizza that came next was just perfect. Prosciutto crudo, mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and rucula (arugula) made a perfect combination. The waiter was very friendly and service was good... read more

We visited Pizzeria Vecchia for a simple dinner. We skipped the appetizer and had pasta Bolognese for main course and shared a mineral water and a half a liter of local wine. Service was poor even though it was a quiet night with few guests in the outdoor area and we left and have desserts elsewhere. The bill was fairly... More

Taormina was our first stop in our 2 week Sicily vacation. We wanted a really, really good wood-fired pizza, thin crust. Pizzeria Vecchia did not disappoint! I ordered a sausage and mushroom, and my husband ordered the same with anchovies! Best pizza we ever had. In fact, I ate the whole pizza I had ordered. Next time, I will add... More

We decided to sit at this place because a friend of mine had previously been there and recommended for its value for money. Even if the setting is not so great (their outside tables are hidden in the middle of side streets), their starters were actually quite good, so we thought it would keep getting better. Their pizzas were decent,... More

When you are a tourist you eat when you can, not always at the times restaurants would like. The Marque said open to 00 hrs. We walk in, the waiter is angry we came, throwing the menus. Said can only have pizza, chef is sleeping. We said sure. Another waiter came to take our order. The pizza was not great.... More

Excellent food , lively & friendly place! Sit outside if possible. Their desserts were also very good , something we found a bit disappointing in other Taormina restaurants. But if you want moderately priced very good food , try this place.

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice, and photos on the wall attest to the number of famous people who have dined there. Maybe we don't like Sicilian style pizza. We found it bland. The wine, on the other hand, was very nice. Probably better places to go.
