Arco Rosso was recommended to us by someone in Siracusa. We spend two evenings looking for it in the wrong place. So when we found it, we decided to give it a try despite being the only customers. I'm glad we did, because the tomato soup was so good, everybody should give it a try. The antipasta was good, as... More

We found this place on the front after looking for a while on TripAdvisor - closed on Mondays though, (maybe Winter season?). Nice and bright but food wasn't as good as we thought it would be. Still a nice place but more of a cafe experience, ambience wise than a restaurant.

The food was fresh, simply prepared and just overall fantastic. I particularly recommend ordering something that involves the homemade macaroni. Perhaps more importantly, however, was the fact that our server – who we assumed was the owner – was so nice and welcoming, spoke English perfectly and definitely remembered us on our second visit. We ate here two out of... More

The Arco Rosso gives its address as is A. De Gasperi, 27, Mazzeo, close to Letojanni, off the via Nazionale north of Taormina. The waitress and chef spent some time in Queens, NY, so can answer any questions about their cooking. We asked about the fish of the day. Giuseppina brought out a tray with a selection. She suggested a... More

We stayed in Taurmina and decided to search dinner at Letujanie after getting tip about places there. After finding a place to park the car we asked a local guy about good place to eat and he suggested that place. We took minestone soup and sea fruit pasta. The soop was good and the pasta was a bit salty and... More

Once we had found this restaurant after reading the reviews we ate here two nights running. On the first night there was a party of 25 eating there, the second time we were one of 5 tables occupied. Both nights the service was excellent. The lady owner as others have said speaks very good English and is happy to stop... More

This restaurant is in Mazzeo on the edge of Letojanni and should not be missed. I came upon it just walking along the seafront in the early evening. It has a very unpretentious exterior and pavement tables where you can watch the world go by, have a drink and enjoy the sunset reflected in the water. Inside has a very... More

Absolutely great. I am a picky eater and not a big fish eater, but the way they prepared the fish was amazing!! Everyone I was with was surprised that I actually ate the whole thing, including myself. And the red wine fit just right. Everything was perfect that night. The service, the atmosphere, the weather. Just a fantastic night!! They... More
