I went there in August with my Family for a lunch. The place is wonderful, its bright and you can have a view on the sea and beautiful mountains of Taormina. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I was there with two small kids and they organized some special food for them. The most important is the food. I... More

We were warmly greeted by the owner and our bottle of white Sicilian wine went down a treat. The seafood risotto and fresh pasta dishes we ate were simply delicious as was the warm home made bread. Our only slight negative was the Sicilian lemon chicken. The chicken's texture wasn't good, as though it had been boiled but I don't... More

Taormina was the last stop of my three weeks in Italy. I might well be a bit critical in my rating. I was there twice mainly because of the reviews on TripAdvisor and that the restaurant was in the vicinity of my hotel! In my first visit, I had the seafood spaghetti. The pasta tasted good and the bread was... More

Went to this place on our first trip back in 2014 and enjoyed it so much we just had to go again on our first night in Taormina this time around. Well it didn't let us down, great food, good wine, great hosts and another enjoyable evening. So much so that we booked it for our last night too !... More

My wife and I visited in the last week of October - didn't need to book. Very friendly welcome and service. We ate Gnocci, pasta, meatballs, lamb cutlets, lemon sorbet and profiteroles all with generous servings of the one by the glass - finished off with a coffee and all for around €110 - which we both thought was excellent...
