This restaurant is off the main streets which are filled with tourist trap restaurants and we are so glad we found it! The staff are extremely attentive and professional and the extras of fresh bread with oil and a gift of sweets to take home were lovely a touch. The food itself was excellent I had the lasagne which was nicely presented, tasted amazing and was only 9 euros which is great value for Taormina! They have a nice variety of dishes with unusual ingredients that we didnt see on offer at any other restaurant! We sat outside which I would recommend as it is a lovely quiet street and I think more atmospheric than inside. Highly recommended restaurant!!!

My girlfriends & I spent our last night in Taormina dining here. We are so glad we did! We had a variety of different things on the menu. The gnocchi with pistachio pesto cream sauce was excellent, the lasagna was made with fresh pasta and presented wrapped in foil molded into a duck. I think our favorite dish was the fillet with gorgonzola sauce and caramelized pear. The fillet was so tender you could cut it with your fork. Another highlight was the caprese salad that was served with Buffalo mozzarella. The staff was attentive and very receptive to all of our needs. When they brought the dessert tray out we had a hard time saying no and decided to order one of each, which turned out to be 8 different items for our group of 4. We ate every bite. We can't think of a better way to have spent our last night in Taormina.
Thank you to all the staff at Le Naumachie for making our visit a memorable one!

Compared to others in the top 10, La Namuchie is genuinely a top quality restaurant. Lovely setting, even for a busy location and the staff are very attentive. Really enjoyed our meal here, well done !

Stands out in Taormina has having a slightly more adventurous menu and cooking is very well executed. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable about the food but atmosphere is relaxed and a major plus is that it is on a side street generally missed out by the acordian players. We went twice in one week. Disagree with earlier reviewer that portions are small - could not manage more than 2 courses on either occasion. Thoroughly recommended as a great antidote to the standard Taormina fare (and the acordian players).

We stumbled across this on our last evening and enjoyed a lovely meal. The menu is more extensive than many other restaurants and so it was nice to have the option of a variety of different dishes. The waiting staff were very friendly and the general atmosphere was relaxed. There were several little extras such as the lemon rock salt on the table which they also sold inside the restaurant. Definitely agree that a look out the back is a must!!! Great end to a fabulous holiday!!!
