You just enjoy everything from the minute you walk in the door. The owners greet you walk you to your table while passing the kitchen. Every table seemed to be happy and enjoyed their meal, you don’t often see that.

We ignored this pleasant restaurant until our last night in Taormina, which was a shame. It is at the top of Luigi Pirandello so you don't have to fight your way along Corso Umberto. The menu is more interesting than some of the other restaurants...More
