Not like in other years when i was asking at the hotel about a restaurant and found myself in strange places ,this year I made some home works and red on the internet about restaurants in Taormina so I arrived already prepared.
L'Incontro has good reviews and I decided to test it ,lucky me!
First of all ,the owner is a very nice friendly person ,he will do anything in order to make you feel good and to give the best service possible.
The food is very well cooked ,I recommend the sea food and fish dishes and also the meat dishes ,everything was delicious and the portions are generously sized.
Pasta: didn't like the pasta ,it was uncooked and also the sauce was bad in my oppinion but maybe somebody else will love.The owner ,Tony ,askes all the time about your oppinion and if you are not happy with your dish ,he will replace it. Also the deserts not to my taste ,we don;t like canolli and also the sicilian cassata was too heavy. After all the dinner we had we could take a good icecream but it was not in the menu so we took it outside after we left the restraurant.
Anyway ,the food was perfect and the wine perfect and the atmosphere was perfect so we returned every day we remained in Taormina (4 days) and had diner in this place.
All by all ,I strongly recommend this place for dinner and atmosphere.

Very friendly welcoming small restaurant . Excellent food typical of the region - try pasta con le sarde , macaroni with fresh sardines , fennel , raisins and palm kernels or the pasta with local sausages .
Lots of other choices on the menu and well worth a visit.

We loved the food and service so much that we came twice. The good was fresh and prepared perfect. The menu had lots for different options. The seafood was fresh as was the vegetables. The staff was great. One the best meals we had in Sicily!

Food here is absolutely amazing. Classic Italian food using good produce and creating food with sublime flavors and nice presentation. A must in Taormina!

Service is very friendly and accommodating.

We agree with all those who rate the cuisine as excellent. But what brought us back repeatedly to L'Incontro was the incomparably friendly atmosphere created by Antoninino the proprietor and the two ladies, one English, one Scottish, who assisted him. A visit was not just a gastronomic satisfaction, it was a lot of friendly fun. We shall miss the place.
