Lovely food with a great atmosphere and great price. The staff were so friendly. Wish we had found this place earlier in our stay as we would have definitely come back.

This Food was what we were looking for! Delicious self made pasta and sauces. Made by Rita herself! Tipp: Pasta alla Norma! And great fresh salads!

This was our favorite place during our week long break to Taormina. Authentic Sicilian food and very friendly staff. You will need to book ahead and not eat lunch - the portions are huge - but it's well worth a visit.

We wanted to have a quick bite, was thinking to eat a pizza here. The nice waiter suggested us to try pasta - it was a great advice! Pasta Norma is to die for! :)

There are so many restaurants that each night I would go out and walk up a few streets and even on stairs there are places to eat. Can't really remember the names but if you look under my reviews you will see some names... More
