“Nice atmosphere, excellent food and service”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant situated in one of the terraced vicoli just off the main street. My wife had a a spaghetti carbonara which was excellent, I had a spaghetti marinara with the right amount of fresh seafood and they catered for a mini pizza for our 3 yr old. We also enjoyed the live entertainment by a local folk band going around Taormina.

“Gutted that we couldn't go back again...”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We went to Shelter pizzeria on one of our last nights. The food was really good. We got a complementary bread basket, bruschetta and small sicilian drink (not sure what it was called.) We tried to go back on our last night, but it was closed that night which was a shame.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

You feel comfortable when you enter this restaurant. We have ordered Pizza. Italy should be famous for Pizza. So we have ordered 2 different. But what a pity. Tender (smooth) dough, not crispy or crunchy. It looked boring and the taste was average only the Salami was ok..(Pizza Diavola 7,50 €, Pizza Boscaiola 10 €) This was not a good choice. The bottle of redwine SHERAZADE (22 €) was ok. Coperto: 2 € per person.
Atmosphere: 3-4 points
Price:3-4 points
Service: 3 points
Quality of Pizza: 3 points

“Much, Much More!”
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Shelter Ristorante (Via Fratelli Bandiera 10 –Taormina) advertises itself as a pizzeria but is much more. It is a small, quiet restaurant with a comfortable and welcoming ambiance. The menu is full of Italian and Sicilian dishes as well as a variety of pizzas. All of the menu offerings are tastefully prepared and the staff are well prepared to answer your questions as well as offering suggestions. This is a restaurant that you will want to return to again.

“As good as ever!”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We had been to Shelter some years back and wanted to return. We were not disappointed. If anything, the food and service has only gotten better. We were offered bruschetta and a licquer on the house. We had home made pasta, which was incredibly good. The desserts were also very nice, the service excellent and all in all a truly enjoyable experience.
