We are always on the lookout for new restaurants when we visit Taormina, and went in search of this little gem only to find it was closed on Mondays. So we returned the next night (with a reservation) and were not disappointed, we chose to eat in side as it was a little cool still in the evenings & I am so glad we did.
The art work is interesting & the piece de resistance is the wash hand basin in the toilet. That aside every inch of the Restaurant has been carefully planned out and the Chefs are on show as they cook. The food is excellent, service was somewhat patchy but will improve as they find their feet.
Well worth a visit.

The perfect last night of a 2 week vacation. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Staff and service, top notch. A warm, welcoming and memorable meal for my family and I.
Thank you! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Taormina.

Delicious, very high class Sicilian cooking using local, organic ingredients. Somewhere special, not your local taverna (certainly not a pizza place). Even the bread and olive oil were enough to stop us in our tracks. Try the courgette flower if they still have it and the Etna white wine that tastes of mint (they advise well on wine). Newly opened, close to the cathedral in Taormina town. Ask for a table in the garden on a warm evening and have a chat to the friendly and well-informed staff.

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.
