We decided to try this pizzeria because we saw the Tripadvisor badge of excellence dated 2012. We expected that the pizza would be great, but it's far from good. Very basic and actually most of the ingredients tasted like was canned, and not fresh. We also tried their specialty bean soup that was literally like canned bean soup being heated. So avoid it, cause there are many other great pizzeria in taormina.

My husband and I ate lunch here twice on a recent trip to Taormina. The service was prompt and the pizzas were made from fresh ingredients. House wines reasonable and of high quality,

There was only one table occupied when we came, and in an otherwise empty restaurant, we were seated right next to them (and they happened to be quite noisy). The place was quite cold, no heat (probably because this is off-season ?). Food was average. Overall, an uninspiring experience compared to other places we visited in Taormina.

Today i had the chance to taste the worse pizza ever. SPECIAL PIZZA MAGO not sure why is called special maybe the chef signature is the fact that u can find a real authentic italian hair in ur pizza served next to mozzarella cheese the rest of the ingredients were missing. A special star goes to the staff that smash the glasses on ur table making a real atmosphere of welcome to this tiny place, make sure you order at least 10 times ur drinks and if u are lucky u might get ur plastic bottle just before u ask for ur bill. I definetely reccomend this placa to all of those that are brave enough to try the real taste of what is called disgusting. Make sure you inform the staff that ur pizza taste bad so that u get a second pizza that looks like a cheese fondue that arrives when everybody else has finished his meal.

This place has a sign on the front door saying it's a Tripadvisor award winner. I'm not sure what that means, but what I can tell you is that the penne pastas we ordered were some of the worst we've ever had in Italy. Ingredients in the menu description were either missing entirely (pesto), or so sparse (eggplant) that you had to search through the whole plateful to find even a small amount. And the overall flavour was very disappointing. The meal gave the impression that the chef really didn't care. That's sadly something you find in some restaurants in Italy. But I didn't expect it in one that displays a high Tripadvisor rating.
