“When in Taormina, a must to visit this restaurant”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

I have been to this restaurant twice and enjoyed it two times.

The first time on my arrival I was offered a warming drink as the table needed to be prepared. Very kind of them.
The menu offers different sophisticated dishes at reasonable prices.
I have a cooked fish with other sea products and pasta course. All the disches were excellent.
The same about sorbet - fresh, home-made.
The good variety of wine at good price and the chef is very well-informed and experienced to give you a good solution for chosing wine.
One more plus to add: the chef was veru frank and on my question if the fish is the catch of the day - answered no and explained the reason. Usually all the restauranmt will not admit it.
I absolutely liked Massimo - the owner of the restaurant. A very nice person.
For sure I will come back and advice everybody to visit it.
The atmosphere was nice and pleasant and the additional plus - it is not a touristic place.

Great!

“Well worth finding”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

Recommended by our hotel it looked unpromising from the street but once inside you realised this was a little different. The service was attentive and amusing, and my shrimp risotto was soft and tasty. My husband felt his stuffed courgette flowers had an over prevalence of batter. We shared a grilled sea bream which whilst delicious was a little on the small side for two people. We were given a free pud in a glass and a digestif as well so no complaints on that front! A fitting meal to end our stay in Sicily. A good example of modern Sicilan cooking

“Such a beautiful view!”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We had a wonderful lunch here with friends. The view is trumped only by the food with is fresh and varied. The service was gracious - the staff went out of their way to make uf feel so welcome. The only bad thing was having to leave:)
