“Bright decor, good food”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We reserved for this restaurant during the day intending to sit outside overlooking the Square. Unfortunately due to heavy rain and winds the restaurant was only operating inside on the night. That didn't detract from the food which was very nice. The waiters were vere polite and quietly efficient. If you chose some of the fish options they will offer various ideas as to how it can be cooked. Simple tasty food and we would eat here again if we were going back.

“Great Meal, good service, pleasant location”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

You have to look for the entrance! we intialy made the mistake of assuming that it was one of the two restaurants on the square, its above them, the entrance is up an alley way on the right, when looking at the two bars.

If you book in advance they will give you a table outside, we booked at lunch time for 8pm that evening.

We shared a started of Anchovies in orange, despite some misgivings they where amazing, we followed with pasta and then a main course we both had fish. The food was excellent as was the service, some have said it was expensive we didn't think so, the food is of good quality, the waiters patient and helpfull.

“Best meal in Sicily”
Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

We ate here on our last might in Taormina and it didn't let us down.

We booked a day in advance to get a table on the terrace. Although we were seated at a table to the back of the terrace we still had a good view of the cathedral and our chairs were placed to get a good view of it.

We had 3 courses all of which were reasonably sized to not be too full by the end of it.

Pasta was al dente, and sauces yummy.

I had fish of the day which they offered to cook in different ways- I chose baked in breadcrumbs- yum. My husband had steak which was simply cooked but v tasty.

We had local wine by the glass which was affordable and a good match tothe food.

I'd recommend a meal here which was good quality with attentive service. It cost us 100 euro for 2 people 3 courses and 3 glasses of wine.

“A table on the terrace in front of Duomo”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Very nice restaurant, nice atmosphere and very good service.
This is the oldest restaurant in Taormina and they serve traditional sicilian plates rivisited. Not a big choice of dishes, but those offered are really good. Everything is fresh and hand made cooked, good selection of wines, I would suggest to try the local ones as they are delicious.
One reccomendation, ask your hotel to book one of the three tables on the terrace with view on the Duomo and you will feel to be back to the past...

“Lovely food”
Reviewed July 21, 2012 via mobile

After reading the reviews we decided to book this restaurant about a week in advance to ensure we got a good table on the terrace. When we arrived we were disappointed to find that our table was in the middle of the terrace so we did not have a view and it was very stuffy - disappointing given how early we had reserved.
The food was lovely and reasonably priced considering the quality - I particularly enjoyed the pistachio semifredo.
Service was good at first but by the end of the meal we were almost ignored and found it very hard to get the bill!

Worth a visit but make sure you specify a table with a view when you book!
