“Fantastic family owned restaurant”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Came for lunch based on hotel recommendation, had the mozzarella timbale with zucchini flowers and the macheroni norma. Food was delicious and service even better, I was the only person there for a late lunch and the owners warmly welcomed me and chatted with me as if I were family. Truly memorable experience and I hope to come back again. Grazie Caterina!

“We became friends”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We found this through a friend that lives in Taorimina. We asked what was his favorite place to have lunch and besides his mother-in-law, this was it. We tried it, loved it and went back for dinner. It is family owned and operated and ended up taking pictures with all of them. This is a special place.

“Simply a Sicilian gem”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

This restaurant came recommended from our hotel, it did not disappoint so much so we went twice!! We had the anchovies starter and the mozzarella timbale both lovely, I had the mussels spaghetti it was divine, my hubby ad the sardine spaghetti it was lovely, the BEST pasta in Taormina. Our second return we had the baked lamb and sea food noodles both were just as amazing, they made special pasta meals for our little one which he described as yummy...
They recommended a nice bottle of red wine which was reasonably priced and so nice we had two!
We will return and this restaurant is a must, just off the Main Street and tucked away full of character and wonderful food.
