Unbelievably expensive and the food was nothing out of this world. Not sure why this restaurant is so over rated but in Taormina itself I have been to many a better restaurants

The restaurant is centrally located in the heart of Taormina. It has a very clean kitchen and the personal hygiene of the food handlers is exceptional. However the portions are extremely small and highly priced. 100 grms of pasta costs 35.00 - 40.00 euro. Furthermore no appropriate food was offered for our kids.

Food is good and very well prepared though terribly expensive. Small portions for the price you pay. The home made gristini are very good. Restaurant has very limited space inside.

Lovely. To anyone who would like to try the food...good luck...hope you are at very least slightly luckier... Alternatively just... More

Came to the restaurant as a solo diner. The waiter, was incredibly helpful and recommended some incredible natural wines. Brought also different olive oils to show me how different terrains affect olives. Some wines came as freebies which was unexpected. The food was also great, but the real passion in this restaurant is wines so make sure to follow their... More

This place was amazing, everything from the location to the wine and food, definitely our favourite restaurant in Taormina. The service was great, the waitress took us through all of their dishes (as the menu was in Italian...) - it was all delicious!

We had some great dishes and some were just ok. Lovely setting tucked away in a back alley. Great service by Sarah. The fish and mussels were outstanding although 50 euro for the seabass was a little ridiculous. The pasta with caviar was not very good. Very expensive and expected more.

We tried this restaurant for our last evening. Food was really excellent and the service was absolutely amazing! One of the best services I ever had. It is not cheap to eat there but it is absolutely worth the money. The quality of the food is really good and a lot of organic ingredients. If you are in Taormina you... More
