“Best place in Taormina!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

I came to Malvasia for my Birthday as having eaten there before I thought it would be nice! Well I was correct they really went all out to make a fuss of me and the food is the best in taormina and I have eaten in quite a few! The steak was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious and we had a seafood salad for starters and it was amzing. All fresh produce and I can honestly sya IGNORE THE BAD AND TRY FOR YOURSELF YOU'LL BE SURPRISED!!!
A bit off the beaten track but typically family run and a lovely homely atmosphere. Could not ask for anywhere better and the cost is amazing considering it is 2 seconds from the main street which overly priced. If I could have ate there every night I would have!!!

“Very good local food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Very good local food slightly far from the main tourist attractions. Nice pasta and risotto dishes accompanied with a series of Nero Davola wines.

“Disinterested older staff and poor menu”
2 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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....”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
