An absolute must, the very best in town. Easy-going to find. Walk down the Umberto for about 1 km and you'll find it on your left.

We ate here three times during our stay in Taormina. It was the perfect place to have a quick, tasty lunch. We only ate the arancini balls and they were our favourite while in Sicily. We recommend trying the Pistachio arancini!
