Although we visited all the way back in June last year, I thought it would be an injustice not to write a review.
We visited due to TA reviews. We were seated and bought a brown bag with still warm bread sticks,oil and salt full of herbs and flavours- this was before our pig sharing anti pasti plate!
Undecided on a few options from the menu, I was recommended the basil gnocchi for main as was told the basil was in season, and my partner had ravioli- both were YUM!! We then each had a desert and were bought a shot of tomato juice. The food was incredible. We visited another restaurant that was higher up the TA list but it just didn't compare to here, and was a lot more expensive. We made sure we came back here on our last night so we wouldn't be disappointed on our last night in taormina.

My wife and I were recommended Ristorante Naumachia by the concierge at the Hotel Lancelot near by. The food was some of the best authentic Italian cuisine we got in all of Italy. We went back twice because of the great experience. Friendly staff, very affordable prices and the menu was diverse. We had pasta, pizza, steak, and everything in between on both occasions. Highly recommend and would definitely go back if ever back in Rome.

The town has a plethora of places to eat which is somewhat confusing when wandering around deciding…is is touristy? are there plenty of locals eating here?
Good Sicilian food and wine with out being expensive and a table outside provides an ideal spot to watch the passing parade….

We chose Le Naumachie based on TripAdvisor reviews and proximity to our hotel (Villa Schuler). We were not disappointed! The restaurant is on a quiet street away from tourist hubbub and we had a pleasant outdoor table. The service was lovely and the menu was creative and distinctive- a vast improvement over the standard Sicilian tourist menu. Everything we had was delicious - cheese antipasto, tuna agrodolce, pasta with porcini, caponata. Prices were quite reasonable for the quality, especially for the quality.

This restaurant is just around the corner from an alley full of tourist trap restaurants, but it's in a totally different class.

The food is different, and well cooked. The wait staff (mostly south asian) are attentive and helpful (we have food allergies, and the staff and chef were wonderful). The chef is italian, and knows what he's doing. The atmosphere is peaceful, relaxing and intimate.

None of the restaurants in this area are cheap, but this is reasonably priced. Give it a try.
