This is our 8th time to this family run restaurant over our last 3 visits to Sicily. The food is delicious and home made. Their specialties are seafood, fish and pasta. We expecially love their muscles (cozza) in white wine, red pepper and basil. Also their lasagna messinese is amazing! The tomatoe sauce is truly exceptional in the lasagna and... More

Super sweet place. The terrace has a beautiful view on the beach. I guess the owners are a married couple. He cooks and she serves. Lovely people, very friendly. The fish was very fresh, the tomatosauce was homemade and the price was normal.

My wife and I went to La Taverna del Marinaio tonight. We are seafood lovers. We ordered the seasonal vegetable grill, mussels with peppers, and the mixed seafood grill, sharing our plates. The mussels were the most tender I have ever eaten and the sauce was delectable! The mixed vegetable grill was roasted eggplant and peppers. Delightful! The mixed seafood... More

We've been there 2 nights in row, everytime we enjoyed good italian food and wine. The owners (I guess) are friendly and careful, even that they do not speak English. The prices are very small compared with Taormina restaurants. Try it if you want a good dinner but don't expect anything fancy.

I went there on a sunday evening at 18.30 and was not their first client. the pasta dishes were cheaper than in the other restaurants, and I found it... More
