We were two that have a great dinner at this resultant. We got the recommendation from locals that we met and we didn't regret following it.

We got vegetable soup, fresh salad with great lemon and pistachio pasta. all of them were very fresh and tasty. The soup was a unique one with all kind of beans and vegetables.

We definitely going to return to this place once return to the area.

We had a very nice dinner experience in this family owned restaurant. Mamma seems to care about her guests personally and always has to check what her son is doing to them. A real Italian experience and nice food and wine too.

Malvasia
What you need to know
Price- $60 for a first, a second split between two and a bottle of wine
Food- Typical Sicilian- pasta, sea food. The menu is not as interesting as other similar restaurants. It was fine but the flavors hardly overwhelmed
Ambiance- Small venue- twenty chairs inside and twenty chairs outside and covered. We ate outside, very pleasant on a quiet street. Linen table cloths,
Service- Service was a bit slow at the start. It took a short while for our menus and they were not very busy. Not quite as friendly as we would have liked.
Our Experience- the food was fine certainly not memorable. Our review is not quite fair, three of us had either fried calamari or the assorted fish. Served with fresh lemon, not a lot you can do with the entry? Sea food risotto was the other entry. It was good but the flavors hardly overwhelmed. The wine was a bit more expensive the others restaurants we enjoyed

We had a great meal here, ate as a family for four with 2 teenagers, all had different pastas and all excellent, also had the calamari which was very fresh and delicious! A little quirky service but friendly and helpful and we like a little bit of quirky!

My wife and I went to this restaurant twice whilst staying in Taormina. Whatever you do don't walk by and chose any other. Seriously, this is home cooking Italian style at its best.

Tonight we started by sharing a plate of mixed antipasto - stunning flavours and variety, particularly the stuffed pepper and stuffs mushroom, wow! That was followed by pasta norma, which was the special recipe of the mother of the family who clearly rules the kitchen. We each had a main course which we could not finish.

The best bit was that the manager (the son of the family!) was prepared to open as many bottles of wine until WE were happy with the selection, and we were. He could not be more charming and willing to ensure that we had a wonderful dining experience.
