The best of the place is its people. They'll make you feel like enjoying a family Sunday meal. We also shared a cooking day with them. We learnt there's no secret but loving what you are doing while cooking. As another remarkable fact is one of the oldest restaurants in town, what confirm that knowledge comes with time of doing the same but renewing it constantly. Traditional Sicilian food cooked with the perfect quantities of knowledge and love. No one will regret stoping there for a meal at any time.

Looked a nice place for lunch, but we got an incredibly bossy waiter who tried to insist that we sat bang-next to another foreign tourist couple -- even though the rest of the place was empty. So we left.

Visiting Taormina you cannot miss this restaurant to have a perfect meal. It will be absolutely easy to find it, just in front of the Messina gate, on the main streed of the Beautifull Taormina, the best location ever. The food is delicious, I'm Italian and I can grant that the pizza I ate was superlative. Several traditional pastas and fish dishes are also available. The service is extremely fast and waiters are efficient and helpfull. Absolutely a must to stop here and try the authentic Italian food.

We ate twice here and ordered pasta (of the day) and pizza.
Prices are OK considering it is Taormina and that food is really good. My advice for non-Italians, please enjoy real Italian food, Sicilian if possible since they cook enjoyable food that most probably you cannot eat in your countries. Go for meat if you like it, but fish is the best option: you're in SIcily! :)

Pasta was delicious. Not exactly the cheapest(house special) but worth the money. Not mentioned in menu so ask the staff. Though not easy to get hold of them when busy. Touristy but rest of items on menu is the usual suspect and affordable.
