“A hidden gem, excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Tucked away a short walk off the main tourist route we were recommended this restaurant by the concierge at our hotel, my brief was good food but not too formal. We were not disappointed ! This lovely restaurant is typically Sicilian, the owner was on hand and is such great fun we felt we had met an old friend! The food is excellent, which is why it is so popular with the locals, and the setting in the ancient town next to a floodlit bell tower could not be more authentic Italian. It was our last night in Taormina but if we had been there longer we would have gone there again.

“Delightful service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

The best thing about Da Lorenzo are the waiters, who are absolutely delightful - friendly, professional and helpful. The restaurant is not very glamorous but that hardly matters. Outside there is a large terrace with a nice view but it was too cold to use on the night we ate here. Inside it is a little tired looking but don't let that put you off - the food is very good - authentic and full of flavour and the wine list is excellent. Should you buy by the glass, the pour is generous. A good find, we left with a smile.

“Charming and Great Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

We were in Taormina for one day on a cruise. Our taxi driver recommended Da Lorenzo for lunch. The waiter was the brother of the owner and worked there over 20 years. He was charming, funny and helpful. I'm a diabetic and explained my diet restrictions. He recommended a great fish and caprese salad that was wonderful. The house Syrah red wine was so good, I wanted a bottle to take back on the ship. They sold me the bottle at a price just above their cost and not the full restaurant price. There were few people in the restaurant as we had a late lunch so we got extra attention. I would go here and eat here anytime I return. If you are in or near Taormina, you have to go to Da Lorenzo. Highly Recommend!

“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

Just fantastic and very authentic. Lovely waitors who add all those extra touches that make a meal special. Fantastic choice of meals - my husband had a wonderful fillet steak and I had the best gnocchi I have ever had - just melted in the mouth!

The food was gorgeous and great value - we will definitely be going back again!
