We found this by accident and loved it. Had the fresh grilled fish and salads every night. They brought a wonderful liqueur on the house after dinner evey night. Our last night we got on-the-house Proseco too (the point being they were very frendly and welcoming.) Their english was very good. A small restaurant with a sophisticated environment.

We shared pizza and salad for lunch. Portions were large so we had plenty of food! We ate on the patio which gave us an opportunity to do some people watching. Recommend for a quick and inexpensive lunch.

Daily fresh fish options cooked and prepared to our preference. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Just off the main highstreet but close enough to still be a part of the people watching that is Taormina. Even have a... More
