“Consistently good restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

We ate here 3 times in a week it was so good. It’s small and necessary to book. Tucked away near the Messina gate, it has a few tables in a courtyard enclosed within a hedge of climbing plants. The fish is very fresh and delicious, particularly the Carpaccio and Bonita. Try the Parmangianna aubergine cake. The service is friendly and helpful. The focus is on fish but the steak and veal are also good. Good Sicilian wines by the glass. Very good value.

“Just wonderful......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Whilst the location is average, the food is just delicious.....above average service for taormina but always a low bill for the quality of food.....I used to go once a week when I lived here and was never disappointed....cant wait to get back to Tao and have the dish I cant remember with the saffron rice which is just divine........

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We went there because our friends recommended this restaurant. We considered ourselves lucky to be given a table as it was packed and we didn't have a reservation ! How I wish they didn't accept us! We arrived there @ 9:15pm. As antipasti we had a platter of Sicilian specialities. Nothing special at all as we only had Parma hams, cheeses etc... At 11:30 our main course finally came., the food we ordered was ok nothing we expected it to be!
Didn't dare to order desserts ! In the meantime many people were complaining and a couple sitting next to us got up and left. We didn't do the same cause we were afraid no one will accept our order cause it was late. The only positive thing - the waitress who was getting all complaints was very caring and we felt sorry for her!

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Although the place was recommended to us by friends, our experience was very disappointing! We had to wait for almost two hours to get served and the food was not something really special!
