We were not prepared for the most amazing meal I think we have ever had. We have eaten at the finest restaurants all over the world and this ranks as perhaps the best and freshest meal we have ever tasted. At lunch we had an eggplant pizza and decided we HAD TO COME BACK FOR DINNER. Homemade fresh breads tasted incredible! Mary Grace came out from behind the counter to share with us her dried tomato whole wheat bread...wow! The homemade pasta raviolis were ricotta cheese filled and mint essence and were paired with a homemade cherry tomato sauce that was thick enough to eat on it's own.
The kiss!!!!! A special dessert from Andrea's home island south of sicily called the KISS is a pastry sandwich with a sweet ricotta filling that is not to be missed.
The prices were reasonable, the service wonderful and friendly, wine delicious from local vineyards ... DO NOT MISS THIS LITTLE GEM!

We stayed at the Panoramic Hotel and decided to not venture into Taormina central for one of the nights. The waiter was very friendly and gave us a good table.
The parmigiana di melanzane I had was very nice albeit not entirely warmed through - a tad lukewarm. The pizza however was fantastic. Really tasty and big! Very filling!
This was a good restaurant, if you're staying in the area, it's well worth a visit. If you're staying in the centre of Taormina, I'm not sure it's worthy of a trip down the cable car just to visit it.

We stumbled upon Da Andrea on a walk along the beachfront, and we were so glad we chose to stop! Incredibly friendly service; our waiter (perhaps even the owner, we didn't catch his name) was welcoming and friendly and offered us his recommendations. I opted for the Margherita pizza and I can say it was probably the best pizza I've ever had! My boyfriend chose a pasta dish, which was just as fresh and delicious. Lovely outdoor seating area too, and although still a bit expensive, it was cheaper than the restuarants in the main town.

My boyfriend and I found exactly what we were looking for... fresh, creative seafood dishes that were also healthy. I think the mussels with pepper was the best mussels dish I've ever had. It was romantic, nice but casual and Francisco our waiter was just great. He really knows the menu, gave dish suggestions that were perfect for what we asked for. We will definitely return!

We went there because of some reviews on tripadvisor but have to say many of them were well overrated.
The place is not very cosy, the garden part has a rather cheap look and we did not find any of our dishes of good value. Everything from starters to mains ( seafood) was very average.
We weere few days around but never came back.

Dear customer Thank you for your review but we feel sorry for his judgment on our plates which unfortunately I can not answer in detail because it is very vague. Provably his tastes do not match our kitchen. With regard to the terrace we can not move it elsewhere. Andrea Pacini
