went there for dinner with my wife earlier this week on the back of recommendation of our hotel.
Location is nice and scenic and you can sit outside within old walls.
That said the food was only ok and too expensive when compared with other restaurants we tried in Taormina - see Nettuno for example.
Ingrients are fresh and mostly bio but prices are not correct.... we were charged 8EUR for a glass local red wine which is too much for Italy and in particular for sicily.
Same Fresh appetizer with a selection of 3 dishes cost 7 eur more than Nettuno.
My Tuna tartarre on avocado was really a little portion.
My view they are trying to do fusion cuisine but not worth it.

This little find had just opened. The local chef had trained in Michelin restaurants in NYC. The presentation of food was outstanding and had a twist on other restaurants. Excellent staff and value. Best in town.

We stumbled across Casa Gioli while looking for a dinner option in Taormina and it had become quite cold so we didn't want to sit outside. Not only were the staff fantastic, and (generous with the wine) but had a great knowledge of their menu and wine list. This is a stylish, modern and cosy restaurant - just off the main street in Taormina and the food is wonderful and local. Suitable for both formal dinner and a more relaxed lunch.
