We ate at here a few times as the menu offered good variation and the service was brilliant .The head Chef came out to talk to the customers for feed back which was always positive and the owner was a joy to be around. Every dish was perfect ! Mussel soup starter was a highlight for me . A must if your in the area for a break .

We stopped for a drink in the afternoon and, after reading the menu, booked a table on the seafront for an evening meal. We were not disappointed. We shared a rustic Sicilian platter to start and there were plenty of cheeses, olives, meat etc. We both chose fish dishes as main courses --- my mixed grilled fish and seafood was delicious and generous in size while my husband's swordfish and tuna with a pistachio crust was equally wonderful. The Etna rose wine complimented the meal well --- the food and drinks were so much better and cheaper than meals we have eaten in Taormina. The staff were very friendly -- thank you to Gabriel for looking after us so well. We have a table booked for another seafront meal.

We came across this place by accident and chose it because it seemed to be popular with Italian tourists (and locals?). Our order was taken by the patrone himself and the service throughout was courteous and prompt. Good food served unpretentiously. A lucky find.

We were here for dinner and the menu offers something different to the usual fare so is a welcome break from the pizza and pasta (though there is pasta on the menu). Salads are delicious and fish dishes are tasty. Portion sizes are on the small side and although the main fish dish said fish and boiled potato - what arrived was a half of a potato! Dessert was excellent.
