Once we had found this restaurant, we had a very enjoyable meal with some lovely wine. My partner had a pesto pasta dish which was out of the world and I had the lemon veal escalopes which were also very nice. We shared a tiramisu what was delicious, although we did have a better one later in the week.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and even though it was difficult to find, the location was very nice and quiet.

The only two slighly disappointing things for me was the price, I thought compared to some other restaurants near-by it was fairly exspensive. Also the side order of fries we had were burnt....if that had not been the case I would have awarded the resurant 5 for food.

la piazzetta was the best place i ate in taormina, its not easy finding good true sicilian places to eat in taormina. the service was amazing along with the food which was all very fresh started with the steak tartare which just took my breath away the oil used was of very high quality then had a very good pasta con le sarde all accomaning a good splash of red as you could imagine i couldnt move after it all but i was reccomended to try their cassata siciliana so i did and it did not dissappoint this amazing little place took my breath away again, the price did justice for quality if anything i think i gained more then them. My hat goes off to the chef and wait staff of la piazzetta grazie a mille da Mario il cuoco d' australia, from one chef to another very well done!!!

Had to wait a while in the (excellent) bar next door for a table, but well worth the wait.

Will come back again this holiday.

So good, we ate dinner here twice.

On Saturday, the restaurant had a good selection of "specials", of which we ordered almost exclusively. The swordfish rolls were outstanding, so if you find them on the menu, order them.

On Sunday, the restaurant doesn't do specials because they are closed on Mondays. Dinner was still good, but not as good as the first night.

We have eaten at this lovely restaurant several times in the past few years. Particularly enjoyed the risotto with red prawns which was on the daily sepcial menu on this occasion and the pasta con le sarde (with fresh sardines and pine nuts) which was very tasty. The home made limoncello tartufo dessert was outstanding
