We're ate later in the evening so maybe that's why it was quiet but we were made welcome. Quality of food was good and it was hot with hot plates as I expect and frequently don't get.
Nice touches of the amuse bouche and sorbet. Not cheap but good value

Food was good with an excellent main of guinea fowl but starters less interesting. Service is perhaps rather over attentive with glasses being refilled after every sip of wine / water!The srvice bell that tells staff a meal is reday is annoyingly very loud!

Visited there for Dinner in September 2012. Food is fantastic Great selection and all superbly presented. Service was attentive and friendly. View from terrace is fantastic as it looks down onto the sea. Be sure to choose your own wine ... A waiter will happily choose one for you but it will be expensive - they don't do house wine and I asked what he would recommend. He said he would bring a nice wine... I asked him how much and he shrugged... It was an expensive bottle of red so I told him to choose again and not cross 30 euro!
Overall I would heartily recommend this as a fantastic meal out. It is a pretty expensive meal but I would say undoubtedly one of the best in Taormina. Meal for two including wine set us back 120 euro.... But I would rather pay that for experience we had in Vicolo Stretto than 80 - 90 for much lesser meals in worse surroundings elsewhere in Taormina.

Superb, imaginative food, excellent service, so good we had to return - even got fresh flowers on the table [for such excellent cuisine plastic table flowers just didn't seem right !]. Expect to pay between £35-£75 depending on courses & wine but it will be good value.

We climbed the very narrow staircase one afternoon to have a look at the restaurant as we were looking for somewhere special for our wedding anniversary. Although closed, a member of staff invited us in and opened up the terrace for us to view. We decided there and then to reserve a table for our anniversary and were not disappointed. We had a lovely table on the terrace, the service was excellent and attentive but not intrusive. The food was delicious with Sicilian specialities. My husband did not order a desert but not wishing to leave him out, the waiter provided him with a canoli.... We found the cost of the meal quite reasonable. A very special evening for our anniversary....thankyou to the waiters and compliments to the chef!
