We visited this restaurant on our first trip to Taormina in 2014 and it was very good then, we booked it for our second trip in June 2016 and it was even better because they had extended the restaurant. The food is first class as is the service and it is very good value for Taormina where prices can be... More

We decided to give this place a try after walking by it a few times during our stay in Taormina. We were very happy that we did. The entrance and interior are decorated whimsically and inviting. I ordered a pasta dish, while my mother opted for a large salad for entrees. Even though the restaurant was packed that night, both... More

On the road opposite the gardens, this restaurant offers a very pleasant evening's dining option. We ate here twice during our stay and was the only restaurant that we visited twice

The entrance of this humble restaurant boast an inviting setting! Situated a short walk from the corso, it has 2 levels. Lower level was decorated with unique local ornaments and packed with hearty diners when we were there. We were escorted to the upper level which was lovely, romantic and allow you views of some bits of sea, stars and... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel Villa Schuler and did not disappoint ! Ate there 3 times during our holiday. Lovely local dishes. The veal dishes were also very good. Busy place so would recommend booking.

Good food, good service, clean and convenient. Can't really complain except that the dining room could have had a little more atmosphere for my taste. Nevertheless, all good!

Who would like to enjoy a dinner without any additional chi chi, try the Al Giardino. True Italian, very good taste, super service (not demanding but friendly an fast at the table when needed). Sea food very fine, pasta as at home of an Italian mama. Prices reflect the quality and the service. Ok. Enjoy

The staff is nice and helpful. The swordfish was dry, the calamari-fritti was just like some gumi. The tiramisu was not bad. In the end we received some nice dessert wine for free.

Very good with excellent service. Family run over three generations with an excellent entrée menu. Well worth an evening meal stop with easy access and not much climbing up and down to reach it. Excellent family dining experience and great conversation with the owner about its history and that of the city and surrounding area. A place to relax after... More
