Classic tourist trap. Looked a nice spot but food was very poor. Both pasta and pizza were just edible but really a mistake to eat any.

Busy restaurant always full at peak times so we took this as positive sign. Better than the average rating on TripAdvisor. My veal chop filled the plate and was tender and juicy. With some fries and a mixed salad on the side it was a most enjoyable meal. My wife went for the fritto mistro which looked and tasted good.... More

So good we came twice. Great Pizza and Pasta, freshest fish possible and the Chips were excellent. Lovely clean restaurant but lovely to sit outside and eat.

At least they took it off the bill without hesitation So reviews say this isn't a tourist trap but at 2.50 for copper to... More

Please do not go. Sicily has amaizing food so please do not come here, it is not cheap, it is Not good. I was surprised to see how they have high raiting in Triadvisor considering their very low quality. La Botte is definitely not a good place to experience italian food so do not waist your time and your money... More

I respectfully disagree with those Tripadvisor members who claim this place to be an exception to the tourist trap collection of Taormina. The one thing this place has going for itself is location. It is also one of the very few pram/pushchair friendly restaurants around which is why we gave it a shot, thinking "how bad can it be".. Pasta... More

In a city like Taormina, where every things is about to cater tourists from all over the world, you should be careful where you eat. Most of the places serves crappy food, but not the La Botte! We spent four days in Calabria, with a quick trip to Taormina, and the best meal we had here! Perfect antipasti, pasta and... More

Later Botte is slightly off the main corsa Umberto and can be missed. It sits on the corner of a block with both outside and inside seating. Internally the walls are covered with photos of "celebraties" and bottles of wine. The service was efficient whilst the selection was reasonable the food was average for what seemed above the typical price... More

We ate a lunch at La Botte and ordered very simple food and wine. The food quality was very average and the service a little aloof and abrupt. Certainly nothing special. Location is quite nice with a small square and a local church across the street.

Great gnocchi ( I asked for bolognese instead of pesto). The pizza superb. The staff very accommodating. The "capo"'s house over looks the restaurant and he makes sure the staff take care of their clients. One of our best meals in Sicily.
