Our hotel recommended this restaurant. The food was amazing, everything fresh and delicious. We started with the wild fennel meatballs that were out of this world including the sauce. We should have split a second and an entree as portions were healthy. We had an entree - the pasta with tuna and tuna entree. Lemon jelly nice dessert and we were thrilled to enjoy on the house the cinnamon liquor which settled our stomachs. Small, intimate and worth every Euro.

Amazing food! And very friendly service. Good quality traditional Sicilian food. It's a shame that it's a bit hidden and most tourists choose to eat at the typical touristy places on the main street as they are really missing out on this hidden gem. We were the only ones in the restaurant at lunch but we had a great afternoon and certainly left very full!! Ask for the homemade cinnamon liqueur afterwards.. And if your really brave the chile liqueur!

After kicking off with probably the most tasteful olive oil and definately sundried tomatoes incl bread, we shared the traditionally Sicilan Maccharoni della Norma (combining fried basil and a crunchy eggplant topping). This (shared) primi plati was already big enough that we almost didn't make it through the main course ("Happy rabbit" and wonderful red tuna, both spiced in perfection). We were then served a complimentary dessert: the most lemony lemon jelly plus 2 cinnamon liqueurs at the end. Indeed a very unforgettable journey of taste!

Fantastic dinner at Tischi Toschi. If you have only one meal in Taormina, make it here. I had a traditional "caponata" (stewed vegetables) and "pasta con le sarde" (pasta with sardines) prepared with wild fennel. Everything we tried was amazing. This is a little place and you should book your table in advance. I will definitely go back.

This place is pretty unique in Taormina. No menu outside for a start. It is also very small with a limited number of covers. After confirming that we didn't have a reservation, we were taking up to the small first floor dining room. It then took 20 mins to get a menu, which was was remarkably short, which was a pleasant change from the typical Taormina offerings. A further 20 mins before our order was taken, and a further delay in ordering the wine. The one waiter (who may well be the owner) can only be described as eccentric
The food though was amazing, although not all diners thought so. We shared a stock fish salad which was incredibly well flavoured. I then had the beef rolls, which where outstanding. Other diners we got chatting to between courses were not happy with the portion sizes (on the small size), but they were fine for me. Wrapped up the meal with excellent Canoli.

If you want great food in a different environment, give it a go, but just be prepared for a wait
