We ate in the garden and had a terrific meal and one which I will remember for presentation and taste.

Do try the ricotta pie and chestnut honey starter... it's amazing and I need the recipe. my man course was a "boat " of grilled fish. A sort of refined fish and chips served in brown paper with a sort of curly fries made so fine they were like potato shavings.. Wow.

Our other main was sea bass in a pistachio crust was fab too.

Well worth the visit.. and the bill.. well a good 80E with just two glasses of wine and no puds and it is brought to you in a box!

Stumbled across the restaurant by chance whilst trying to escape the unappetizing Taormina tourist trap (not impressed),

We ate in the outside terrace which is nicely done up, My three year old daughter enjoyed tumbling on the lawn!!!

Food was excellent and well presented. Attentive service, but on the expensive side.

Recommended.

We went to this restaurant after a recommendation from our hotel. The location was beautiful, hidden away from the busy shoppingstreet in Taormina. Despite this, the service was poor. There was around five waiters on work this evening, but they were so ineffective. A couple sitting next to us ended up going, because they didn't get a menu - they had to ask for it THREE times, still no reaction from the staff.
We were lucky enough to get the menu and order, but it took a good while before we even got something to drink. We actually saw the staff standing inside, doing nothing but talk to eachother. Which is quite annoying when you really need something to drink.
The food was good, but that was it. It almost seemed like the waiters ignored us, and that's not what we expect in a "nice" restaurant. All in all, not good.

Went to Nettuno with high expectations and recommendations, but came out very disappointed! Few dishes which we ate (five of us) were good, but the rest was bad quality, not well prepared and created very bad taste in mouth! The service was horrible, we waited for waiters few times for more than 10 minutes, they were amateurs, with no knowledge of their own job, passing the fork and the knife across the table (over the food) for one of us. Very bad experience!

Loved the atmosphere and food here. They accommodated 14 of us and handled it well. Generous portions of food and drink; beautiful weather and great service. I would definitely return!
