Mamma Maria
Ranked #38 of 115 Taormina B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 15, 2010

we selected it in last minute as we hadn't had a reservation before arrived in Taormina. We shouldn't have.
The room was increadible small, the view was nothing (just a dirty rooftop) and the breakfast was also very poor.
The location is good on the other hand, just a few step to the main street.
What made me really angry that it was a big lie. Their website looks great, with giant balcony with view to the Etna, but it's not true. They have a rooftop "suit" which is also very small, and only that has the balcony so nobody else can use it.
The owner was very nice and helpful when we arrived, and suggested us a nice local trattoria: Il Baccanale where we recieve 10% discount. We tried it and again shouldn't have. No taste, no quantity, even did not provide the discount. Really the worst restaurant we've been during the 2 weeks roundtrip in Sicily. So altogether it was a big disappointment, as we expected much more!

We stayed at Mamma Maria's last year in the suite on the top floor. Fantastic balcony with a view of Etna where we ended our days of touring sipping marsala!! They gave us a great deal, too! Vito is kind and gentle and very helpful, though his English is limited. He is assisted by Pina who speaks excellent English and French. They are new and they did everything to make our stay agreeable. We recommmend this quiet and welcoming bed and breakfast. Thanks Vito and Pina!
