We happened to walk by this restaurant and thought it looked nice...it has a large terrace surrounded by ivied walls and many potted plants and looked very inviting. The reviews were also positive. We had eaten in Taormina several times and this was the first time that a menu noted that many of the meals contained portions that had been... More

Very good food. We loved our steaks but were brought the wrong ones I think because of the language barrier.

Restaurant is a little off the beaten path down a few side streets. We enjoyed our meal outside in the garden area. It was felt very special and magical. The servers were attentive but not intrusive. Portions were a good size and our meals were excellent.

We wandered down quite a few of the little side streets in this delightful town and decided up l'on this place for lunch...and what a treat it was too! Even the house wine is lovely, service was good and the swordfish fantastic! We would go back.

Excellent food and service. Reasonably priced meal and wine. Lovely garden setting below Corso Umberto. We liked it so much that we ate their again on the last night of our trip.

We came for dinner and were not disappointed. Very reasonable carafe of wine for €7. Charming and helpful waiter. We had chicken and swordfish for main courses. Nicely cooked and presented. Recommended.

This restaurant is located in the back streets and is centred around an outdoor garden. It is very popular and tends to fill quickly after 8. The seafood is fantastic and I can recommend the tuna and swordfish. If you are a fan of rose wine they tend to serve red wine chilled for this but still good. We visited... More

Just go here. Friendly staff, great food, reasonably priced (for taormina!) Shame we found it at the end of our holiday or we'd have definitely gone back.

These guys are the full package. Organised a luncheon for 21 people after a wedding ( 04/10/16 ). I pre ordered the starter, but guests were invited to choose their main course from the menu ( no easy feat ). The dishes that came out of that small kitchen were absolutely delicious. The whole event was perfectly choreographed by the... More

Having been shabbily treated and ripped off elsewhere, this is a truly delightful find. Peaceful location, friendly and attentive but unrushed service. Very understanding of gluten-free needs. Food just delicious and cheap by Taormina standards. Yes we booked for the following night to end our holiday on a high note.
