Tried this place for dinner on Saturday evening. Parking is not ideal if it's bad weather. We found a space in High Street, about 5 minutes walk. Initial impression is a very clean smart restaurant with staff to match. Not busy. Only four tables occupied. The staff are polite and professional. The food is OK but a little disappointing. I...

Very tasty food to bring in the NY! FYI we found best value nearby parking from just £1 at The Boulevard, RH10 1UR!

I found out about this little place (that I ride past daily and had not noticed) when we visited for a colleague's leaving meal. It was so good and helpful that I thought of it when arranging a meal for my wife's birthday. Mick took my reservation for 14 people and we kept in touch in the run up to... More

I have been to many restaurants for many different occasions and hands down this place is the best, the staff were great (we are a pain in the bum) and the food was so good. Steve was brilliant, as were all the staff, I'm going to recommend your restaurant to everyone

I have been here several times before and really enjoyed the food, service and ambience. However we went New Years Eve and the service was appalling. I have only given 3 stars instead of 2 as the food itself was good enough when we eventually got it. It took about 15 minutes before we were even given menus after sitting... More

It's a bit out the way this one and you'd almost have to know about it before going, but it's well worth the visit. A genuine and homely Italian restaurant where everything is done simply but done extremely well. Really clean and sleek food. Very affordable and really excellent service. The only gripe of the evening was that some irresponsible... More

Ate here with a group of friends. Food tasty. Most of us happy with what we chose. Service was average if not a little slow. Bit pricey especially drinks. Be aware of surcharge on top of bill. Recommend the pasta dishes. Had a good nite.

The food is acceptable enough but the service is truly awful - an hour and a half for the starters. Main course incorrect and the waiters arguing about it until i insisted they bring the menu to show what should have been brought out. Dessert forgotten altogether - everyone else had finished and they then admitted they'd forgotten to start... More

I went with my fiancé and my parents for a lunchtime meal on a Saturday. The restaurant was dead apart from one other group dining but this was not an issue for me personally. We found the food to be of a generally very good standard. I particularly enjoyed the pear and Gorgonzola pasta dish that I had and it... More

We are a new independent restaurant, owned by three friends who want to bring you a truly special culinary experience, almost making you believe that you could be sitting in Taormina, Sicily and not in Crawley. Our menus are traditional Sicilian fare, which include a wide selection of fish dishes, thus moving away from the trendy chain restaurants we will introduce you to a friendly new restaurant experience where it's all about our customers being content. Of course there are some traditional Italian dishes that should never be replaced and we will always try to accommodate our customer's desires where possible. We look forward to introducing you to Taormina Restaurant's stylish and relaxed ambience very soon. Arrivederci
