Romantic, open air restaurant on the steps of Via D'Orville. Average food, pleasant staff, but drinks are a rip off. Drinks much more expensive that any other comparable restaurant. Beware.

Yes, it is not cheap, as nothing is so in Taormina.

The food is nothing special, it is not bad, but you are also welcome just for a drink.

The charme of the Burrasca is the place itself, tables right and left of the steps in one alleyway, the music and the musical staff.
All well known Italian songs live, the guests are welcome to perform themselves and we had fun for a couple of nights with different local amateur artists, one of them extremely good.

It is entertaining to watch the scenery and listen to the music and I prefer to pay a little more for that music rather than to have the touring bands, every twenty minutes another one for a short noise and than collecting with a hat.

And if you go there, ask the waitor for "Aysha", you will forget Khaled :o)

After being in Taormina 5 times, I recently decided to try Taverna Burrasca, as I had not done so before. I have had many fabulous meals in Taormina at a fraction of what we paid here recently. Our bill for the evening was 85 euro, which for what we got was expensive. One Bruschetta was 5 euro, glass of wine 6euro, side vegetables 9 euro and main courses were expensive for what we got. I would pay the same for a meal in Ireland. The music attracted us here but I would not return, we felt we had been ripped off as there are many other fabulous places to eat in Taormina.

During a week in Taormina we spent 4 evenings in Burrasca because of the nice athmosphere and lovely Sicilian music(A Taormina l`more ci fa)
