This restaurant is family run with hospitality and food in true Italian style. Located away from the hustle and bustle of Corso Umberto a very relaxing place to eat. The food is simple and tasty. Try the Minestrone soup or a good plate of pasta you will not be disappointed. The prices are reasonable when compared with other restaurants in... More

I ordered the sea urchin and spaghetti. It cost 18 euros and was just a plateful of spaghetti in an oil base with very little specks of black (the sea urchin eggs we were told by the owner). She saw that I was not eating but never came over to ask what was wrong or to make another offer. She... More

We stopped here for lunch because it was in a quiet place and had outside seating. The food is average and the service is not particularly attentive. As others have noted there are lots of options on the menu. Wifi did not work.

We stopped in for a late night snack of minestrone soup and shrimp cocktail. Both were good, but we especially liked the seating options away from the bustle of a busier street. It's pretty easy to find.

Great terrace seating on a quiet street to watch the world go by - with a varied menu to keep all tastes happy. It was a busy evening, but the staff were very attentive. We can definitely recommend this spot for the tasty food!

Pity we went here on our last night as it didn't give us an opportunity to go again. Really enjoyed the mixed fish dish. There are many restaurants in Taormina but we really enjoyed this one and made our last night in Italy memorable

We found this restaurant by chance when we couldn't find the restaurant recommended by our hotel and were pleasantly surprised. The setting was pleasant, the service very friendly. I was thrilled when I asked for a wine recommendation the waitress offered one of the least expensive at €18 which we found very good We had a complimentary bruschetta and then... More

Slightly off the main 'Corso Umberto' it was a bit quieter at least initially and better priced. We were only after a quick bite and we both had two tasty pasta dishes that were served quickly. Not sure would go back here for main or larger meal but did the job.
