We were greeted with a lovely friendly smile from one of the owners and relaxed with a prosecco apperitivo and some nibbles. The setting is in a small square opposite the Duomo Church and fountain and a couple of steps away from the Corso Umberto. Prices reasonable in comparison to other bars in the vicinity.

Good priced bar offering snacks in the square opposite the popular and busy church. Great for people watching and the staff are friendly and will teach you Italian as you order! Significantly cheaper than the bars further up the street towards the Cinque Arch and Metropole end of the main pedestrian street.

So, you know a place has to be good if the local residents still frequent it--even though it's right on one of the busiest/touristy places in Taormina. It's been here for years. Family run. The people watching from here is great too.

I like this bar, laid back, good chill out place. Nice friendly waitress too. Super glass of Nero d'Avola .. one of the best i have tasted. Nicely situated too, laid back from the main street (Corso Umberto) but close enough to people-watch and just chill.

We paid this bar a visit as it is in a nice location overlooking the cathedral. Unfortunately the waitress tried to charge us more for the drinks than she should have which left a bad taste.

We found this bar by accident and are so glad we did. The service is excellent and there is a very good selection of drinks and cocktails. We enjoyed our drinks, they do a mean White Lady, along with some bubbles and watched the world go by. Very relaxing and enjoyable bar

We only stopped for drinks just before mid day and we felt the waiters were a little put out by this. However, it is a really good spot for people watching and we enjoyed our 45 minutes sitting there.
