Very nice spot. Cool atmosphere. Terrible service! The staff basically ignored us. Never came over to the table. Refused to give a glass of ice. Monday night, very busy. Staff couldn't handle crowd.

While we didn't try the wide variety of cocktails, it was after all lunch, the setting, the food and the service were excellent. So many of the restaurants in Taormina are in the main streets, a bit like eating in a bus station. This restaurant,...More
