Enjoyed meal and service here last night. Mixed seafood starter for 2, followed by delicious steak in peppercorn sauce and the most succulent lamb chops - recommended.

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
