We were brought here as part of a Perillo tour and usually they take us to very decent restaurants, but not in this case. All 39 of us got the bums rush. No sooner were we handed menus were we being asked for what we wanted, and not in the most cordial way. The service was gruff and the food... More

Tired after a few hours of walking through the city, we stopped for lunch at this restaurant in Corso Umberto, the main street of Taormina, attracted by the fact that in the end of the hall with laid tables that could be seen from the entrance seemed to glimpse a beautiful landscape. We got an appetizer and pasta or rice... More

We popped in here on our first day in Taormina and ate more than intended! The coquilles were good and an excellent choice of fish, finishing off with a delicious crepe. Friendly atmosphere and an enjoyable experience. Although we found several good restaurants during the week, we came back here a second time. Very helpful so far as choosing a... More

Booked a table for four, had a nice welcome from the host. It is a traditional family restaurant on the main street in Taormina. Nice decor, well appointed, very attentive and friendly service. Excellent fresh tomato crostini brought to the table. Well priced wine list, we had a Sicilian Sauvignon Blanc that was quite refreshing although not particularly subtle. A... More

This was a nice family run restaurant. The place is small but that makes it more personable. The staff was friendly and helped to recommend some dishes to try. The atmosphere was very relaxed. I had a pasta dish and enjoyed it- one of the house specials. Note if you would like a seat by the terrace best to reserve.

Our tour guides recommended this place. I have to say that it was the worst meal I had in over three weeks of travel in Italy. 22 euros for mixed grilled seafood which was so rubbery, I could hardly cut it. There seemed to be plenty of restaurants around, so don't go here.

A truly disappointing meal, the sauce for the steak & lemon sole was horrible probably from a packet, The starters were also poor.

It seemed to be more a place locals go than a tourist place. The service was excellent and there was a nice wine list. All of the food was excellent. We pretty much stayed with the seafood, since we were by the sea. Everything was wonderful including the appetizers and pasta dishes. We accepted recommendations (all off the menu) but... More

We called in for lunch on a visit to Taormina, and were shown to a table for two near the window, out of the sun and with a pleasant breeze. Sure you don't get the views of some of the other places up towards Piazza Duomo, but it had a great feel to it. A very good menu, with excellent... More
