This restaurant, tucked away in one of the many narrow side streets off the main road Corso Umberto is a must to visit. We ordered a variety of pizza's and all were mouthwatering and prime cooked. the staff are ever so welcoming. Ambience is quaint, soft and one which is found only in Taormina. I highly recommend this restaurant and will return.

We visited this restaurant recently on spec and were pleasantly suprised. In fact we liked it so much we went back again despite having only three nights in Taormina and so many restaurants to choose from. The veggie options were great - a delicious vegetable lasagne, very light and layered rather than baked and a parmigiana de melanzane of similar style and quality. Good pizzas too. The house wine was reasonably priced and eminently quaffable. Those who've had bad experiences must have had bad luck as we had no complaints at all.

I have come to the Cisterna for the last few years and as well the food as the service were always excellent. It seems very difficult to understand how someone could not be happy here. The pizzas are among the best I have had (and believe me, I had MANY) and the terrasse is just lovely. It goes without saying that the place is quite popular, so one may have to wait a little bit before getting a table. But once you are in there you are going to love it!

This small, quaint cafe has all the old world charm and ambience one could hope to fine. The food and service was exceptionally good. We had ordinary ham and cheese sanwiches and french fries which were good. I had the local Moretti birra (beer) and my wife had mineral water.

We usually avoid touristy places such as this, but it was late, we were very hungry, so in we went. It was a mistake. The restaurant is well located, with a lovely veranda and great views. The food was reasonable, although certainly not prepared from scratch. Fair enough, we weren't expecting a gourmet experience. When the bill came, we noticed that the "coperta", that irritating gimmick to fleece tourists, was added to the total despite the fact that we had send away their sad looking bread and whatever else accompanied it. When I questioned the charge (4 Euros), the explanation given was the cost for "the use of napkins and cutlery". After raising a fuss, the manager removed the charge, but not in good will. We left the restaurant under his and the waiter's mumblings, and as a Portuguese speaker I understood the gist of their words: certainly not a message of friendliness. That was our only bad experience in Sicily, and hope other hungry travelers don't make the same mistake.
