“Disinterested older staff and poor menu”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Rated well but found experienced staff showed little interest in the customers and the food very disappointing. An Involtini that wasn't and a salad that was a couple of torn lettuce leaves and some grated carrot. There are far better restaurants in the same bracket in the area.

“Nice little place”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was the first place we ate and we went there based on the reviews on trip advisors. We loved this place the food was good the service was fast but it was a little lacking in atmosphere but we went on a sunday night so might be better during the week.

“Nice Food but....”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Really good pasta great flavours but service felt a little rushed and as long as you like your pasta warm then it's ok. A bit disappointing.

“Best meal in Taormina”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Had the best meal in Taormina. Their special ravioli dish was wonderful & the steak melted in the mouth. We chose Malvasia for our last meal of the holiday & it was just as good as the previous one. They made us feel very welcome & the complimentary drink at the end finished off a very pleasant evening.

“Good little restaurant ”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

Good family run local restaurant serving up nice food at reasonable prices, it's relaxed with efficient service and not too touristy like most of the places in the town. I would go back!
