Let me start by saying I've been to Taormina 3 times and this restaurant is hands down the absolute best when it comes to food, ambiance and service - and at the price this restaurant offers amazing value. I will return every chance I get! I was recently married in Sicily (I reside in the US) and chose Ristorante Le... More

I had been advised to dine here but approaching down an alley I was dubious. We were shown through to the seating area by the Roman wall where we had a beautiful, well cooked meal served professionally. This is a classy restaurant - well worth a visit and a return visit perhaps!

We ate here on October 26th. The location is ideal and the service and food were excellent. The staff provided excellent advice regarding local wines; and we could not fault the restaurant. We would certainly visit again when we return to Taormina.

We've just eaten here tonight - went on the back of TripAdvisor ratings and sadly disappointed. We've eaten at hotel villa Carlotta, Osteria Nero d'avola and restauraunt l'incontro amonsgst others this week , all beat the Naumachie hands down. My wife had tempura prawns which was the heaviest tempura batter you could imagine. Undercooked and soggy. I had chicken which... More

I normally don't leave negative reviews but thought I would share our experience here. First the good points, nice restaurant decor, off the beaten track, friendly staff and pretty good service. What really surprised us was the food quality. For a restaurant purporting to be up market and costing circa €50+ per head, the food was very poor. I ordered... More

Booked this on the basis of other reviews and looks of restaurant walking past. Sadly the Prosecco, bread & olive oil were the best parts for me. Tomato soup was also good but the carbonara & prawn tempura disappointed. There are definitely better places to eat that are not rated so well.

The caponara appetizer was extremely good. For my main course I had tuna steak in strawberry sauce, an unusual combination that worked surprisingly well. For dessert I had a glass of the local Amara liqueur, which was served with a lovely little selection of biscotti. Only the wine disappointed. A better quality wine served by the glass would have made... More

We were a group of friends and enjoyed a delightful evening outside on a quiet street. We had green salad with tuna to start and sea bass as our main. Service was great snd food was excellent.

Ate here last night with a group of Australians touring southern Italy. We had some of the best Italian food on this trip. The best way to describe it is modern Italian using fresh ingredients and complimented with fine Silcilian wines. My prawn salad starter and tuna main course where perfectly matched with the wine. The desserts also have a... More

Placed between tourist trap restaurants with unserious long menu cards in multiple languages and having annoying pushy waiters on the street to lure you into their restaurants, you find this great place. The restaurant has outdoor seating in a quiet yard with old arches, inside you will find more comfortable seating. The food was some of the best we had... More
