“Superb food and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

Probably the finest meal we had in Sicily out side of my cousin's house. The owner takes your order and makes great suggestions. Not cheap but worth it. The only issue was getting the bill or il conto....took 20 plus minutes. Whole family moved on to enjoy the passagiata while Dad waited for the bill :)

“Good service and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Had The lamb Carre and lobster tagliatelle. Amazing! Also the service was great! Definitely on the expensive side, but well worth it.

We were 6 friends and had travelled one week in the aeoli islands.

“A good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We visited the restaurant during our stay in the area. We decided to eat at this place because of the view from the outdoor tables, which were gorgeous. The restaurant itself also seemed lovely and when we sat at our table we were served two glasses of sparkling wine. We were not very hungry and decided only to have main courses. Before our main course we were served some antipasti which were very tasteful. We had two different steaks which both were well prepared and tasteful, but the one was definitely more tasteful than the other, unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the course. Because of the good food, we decided also to have some dessert, which were also well tasting After the dessert we were served some Sicilian cookies and liquor.

I must say that I’ve now read some of the reviews of the restaurant and I can’t recognize what some people write about “odd service” as I experienced the service as very professional.

The restaurant has a very good service and also very good food. But you are also gonna pay for it. The restaurant has the most expensive coperto I’ve seen (3€ each person) and the courses itself were also quite expensive. We paid around 90€ for two desserts, two main courses and a bottle of one of the cheaper wine that they had.

“Molto Bene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

What a gem. Great service. Fantastic quality. Excellent value for money. My wife and I enjoyed a most memorable wedding anniversary here. The Maitre de was exceptional in his attention and information. The view from the balcony table over the piazza and the Ionian sea was so romantic. Everyone going to Taormina should go here fo a meal. We are planning on going to Taormina next June 17th just to eat here.
