Having read other reviews I was looking forward to eating here. I have to say that the service left a lot to be desired. The guy serving us was anyone but friendly and the speed of service was lousy when taking into account that we were the only people in the restaurant. Having visited plenty of Italian restaurants both in and outside of Italy I have to say the food was anything but spectacular and at best average. It was a real shame as Taormina is one of the most stunning places I have seen.

We ate here because we had seen good reviews on Trip Advisor, on our first night out in Taormina. The food is fine, but the portions were enormous, so we wished we had shared a starter. After our Pizza, the owner asked if we wouldn't mind moving tables so he could accommodate a larger group, and offered us a free drink if we would oblige, which we did. The drink was supposed to be limoncello, was not unpleasant, but like no limoncello I have ever had before or since! After we had moved, we apparently became totally invisible, and it became very difficult to order dessert of coffee. The restaurant appeared to have made the mistake of many outdoor street restaurants, and just kept putting out more tables as people arrived without having enough staff to cope. We did not go back.

We ate here 3 nights out of our week holiday and weren't disappointed. The bruchetta and pizzas are fantastic and worth going back for. We didn't have any dessert so can't comment. They have tables outside and on the steps leading down to the restaurant. Service was fine, nothing to complain about. Very attentive and helpful.
