Being in Taoromia in the winter it was difficult to find an open restaurant but we were not disappointed. Very good food and service with reasonable prices. Great selection of food and drinks making it easy to find food that fit everyone's tastes.

Average and overpriced food. The location is very central and there is a beautiful view of the sea, but this does not compensate for the poor quality of the food.

Down an unsuspecting alley way (which was a little stinky) was this gem. The view of the water was lovely! The staff was friendly and prompt. The Minestrone soup was delicious as was the bruschetta. My son ordered the spaghetti bolognese, which was incredible! My husband ordered the lamb, which he loved, and I ordered the steak. The steak was... More

Great service and loved the simple Italian food here-the terrace was an oasis of calm. The price was also good for the area-it made a great lunch stop and we really felt at home. Would recommend!

We visited Taormina as part of a tour from Messina. After walking around this beautiful town, we were ready for lunch. We randomly picked this restaurant and were so glad we did. After walking down the stairs, you enter a deck with lovely views of the sparkling blue sea. We were't overly hungry, so just ordered 2 dishes to share.... More

Overpriced is the first thing. Claim "terrace with a view" and only about 5 tables have a view. Terrace is very small and cramped. We spent 15 days in Greece and Italy and this was only one of two restaurants out of all we ate at that had a "cover charge". We get paying a little more for the view.... More

Great view of the sea from the dining area. All the dishes served around us looked good and guests seemed to love them. We had pizza and it was great!

God food, good... More
