“Not a place for cocktails”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We went here based on the good reviews. The position is good and it is enjoyable watching everybody walk by and the normal hustle and bustle. We went for an after dinner cocktail and they were the worst we have tasted. I ordered a Bellini which was so lemon flavoured and sour I struggled to drink it, they were very weak with no taste of alcohol in either one. For anyone just going for a drink I would recommend the Daquiri Lounge instead .

“Meh”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

Stopped here one morning because of the location and the advertisement for a big English breakfast. At 10 euros for the plate, it was not worth it. The banger was nothing more than a hotdog & not even a whole hotdog. Hardly 2 tablespoons of beans and the bacon was no good. Not hammy like it should be rather it was just undercooked. The service was good & it seemed to be a popular spot but that meant the tables were too crowded (passers by kept walking into me) and the cigarette smoke was almost unbearable. My espresso con panna was delicious, but I would suggest passing by this place & hitting up somewhere else instead.

“Sit Outside At The Cafe & Enjoy The People Watching”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

The coffees and drinks on offer at Licchio's outdoor cafe in Taormina are perfectly prepared. You can sit at a table [smoke 'em if you've got 'em] and enjoy the ambiance of Corso Umberto at your leisure. Service only improved - not that it wasn't acceptable the first time we were there, as we got to know the wait-staff. Any time of the day that we'd stop by and found ourselves a table we were greeted with smiles and excellent service. If only I resided nearer to Licchio's, to say that I'd be a regular would be an understatement.

“Top class typical café”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Located in Taormina main street this is the hot spot for local people . Great cappuccino and croissants, very good gelati and granite, best and most reasonably priced drinks for the local aperitif. Any drink comes with a large platter of local nibbles, small pizzas and bruschettas..... Really yummy !
