This was the first place we dined during our holiday in Sicily and when we arrived that lunch time there were only 2 other tables taken, by the time we’d finished our meal the place was full both inside and out. Great place to eat...More

After having sampled many of the delicious Italian indulgences available thoughout the day along Taormina, we were in the mood for only a light dinner and decided on this place as it was on the way back to our hotel and had a nice atmosphere...More

The wine was the only good thing. Do not have the steak. Most expensive thing on the menu. Ordered it. Like a nice fillet. The chips were the best bit. Ended up eating the bread. The steak was shockingly awful! Service was as grumpy as...More

We stopped off here for some lunch and a much needed break after touring Taormina. Great fresh pizzas and pasta dishes however service was a little slow at times!
