We ate at this lovely restaurant during our stay at Taormina. We were made to feel really welcome even though we hadn't booked and the food was excellent. We walked up the pathway / stairs from Taormina, which is bit of a trek. Definitely recommend...More

Great local restaurant located above Taormina downtown. Go here for great food at decent prices with great views. Only downfall - u have to take cab. Can not walk to! But still worth it and simply one of the best Taormina has to offer.

It is not all that expensive - I was actually surprised. The pizzas are the same price as the pizzas you pay for in the city centre. You can have very good Sicilian wine and pay only 20-30 Euro a bottle. Don't hesitate to... More
