“Nice place to have a pleasant dinner”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We recommend the gamberoni and sitting at a table outside watching people strolling by. Sometimes the locals play and sing for the tourists. The waiters like to have a conversation but they are not pushy.

I usually plan our Holidays around trip adviser ratings for hotels food etc.
We also usually try as many different places as we can on holidays,
However so glad we broke the rules here, if we had not taken a chance visiting the Trattoria Piazza Badia which had at the time of writing ratings well outside the top ten, we would have missed three superb meals.
Overlooking one of the main squares & the Palazzo Corvala plus the Church of Saint Catherine
the location is atmospheric and lively yet tranquil at the same time.
We also usually follow the golden rules on holiday of eating off the tourist track where all the locals go, we have all done that haven't we, found a place surrounded by flies above an open sewer or refuse tip and kidded ourselves that we had enjoyed a fabulous meal and saved a few pounds euros etc.
But this Trattoria is also one of the prettiest we visited in the Town so you might expect sky high prices, but this was not the case, the prices here are more than competitive plus has the bonus of holding a more extensive menu than most places in Taormina.
So onto the food we tried Pizza, various Pasta Seafood and meat dishes & all were exquisite,
as was the service provided by Raymond and his young very good looking young colleague (the missus told me to put that in)
Professional in all that they did yet unobtrusive friendly and warm they helped make all our meals a special occasion.
So well done to all the staff here from the manager & the chef down I believe you are well on the way to making your mark in a highly competitive sphere in Taormina.
So give it a try folks tell them Neil & Sheree sent you.

“True Sicilian!”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

My first trip to Sicily and my expectations were high. Badia did not disappoint me. The food was authentic, delicious, fresh and Sicilian not a wanna be! I highly recommend this restaurant. They are conveniently open late, their grilled vegetables are amazing, and the sweet almond wine after a delicious meal is the icing on the cake!

“very nice place”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

a typical Sicilian restaurant very colorful, the fish is good and the pasta to the Taranto and seafood are wonderful! The waiter was very nice and friendly, and the view of Church of St. Catherine and the Palazzo Corvaja make the atmosphere very romantic..
Lunch is not expensive given that the fish is of excellent quality..I highly recommend this place
