“Charming and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

On a wet midday in Taormina, we took shelter under an awning and peered into this charming, warm, inviting spot. It was lunchtime and there was a TripAdvisor sticker in the window and that sealed the deal. Our thanks to whomever listed them with TripAdvisor because we had a memorable experience. (The owner told us later that he was surprised when the sticker arrived in the mail since he did not even know that people had reviewed his restaurant.) We ordered bruschetta and panini and they were delicious--we are still looking for an olive oil that would even come close! The bread was amazing; we ate every crumb. The house wine was very nice, and we enjoyed the camaraderie of the other guests and the owner. There is a wonderful ambiance in this cozy, comfortable place,

“If you are looking for a light lunch....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

We were desperate for a light lunch when we came by Arco Rosso - just perfect! Two bruschetta - one tomato and one marinara complimented each other perfectly and the glass of wine. And the price was very reasonable too (Taormina is very much a resort town and knows how to charge tourists for food and drinks).

“Great little find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

We did not eat here, but a great setting in the alleyway, allowing for plenty of people watching makes this a great place for pre- or post dinner drinks too. The service is friendly, the selection extensive and it offers good value.

“great little place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

authentic little place in Taormina, great drink and perfect bruschetta. You watch the people pass you by, we were so happy to have found this little jewel just off the touristy street, where you feel more like a local. A must!
