Perhaps we were there too early, about 7 PM, but we were the only ones in this large restaurant and the atmosphere was a bit strange. The pizza though was good - priced a bit high but it was bigger and was made in the oven at one end of the place.

Good food but my husband I paid 96 euros for a Starter and Main course each, one beer and a bottle of water. Noticed that like a lot of restaurants in Taormina, they add a 'cover charge' on for each diner - bit cheeky. The highlight of the evening was when the wandering musicians arrived (you can hear them in... More

We thought the staff were very pleasant indeed, our starter was delicious, but I ordered the wrong main ( tuna and onions) my fault intirely. When we came to pay we queried the €5 at the top of the bill, the older lady who seemed to be the owner, replied it's for tax and shrugged her shoulders. We never saw... More

We visited this restaurant twice during a week's stay in Taormina. We went back because the first meal was so good and we weren't disappointed. The food was good and the staff were very friendly.

Had pizza here - was fine & not particularly memorable. Seems to cater for groups American tourists. Many photographs on the wall of the owners with famous people.

Looked nice, staff were friendly. At the end we payed 128 € for 3 people for cocktail (Spritz - 8€) starters and pizza (dry, not very tasty) + wine (not very good) and grappa (simple 7€). Ok our problem, we did not check the menue for the cocktail and the grappa. Yet.. thought it was a ripp off.

In The middle of Taormina. Nice, friendly. You can seat next to the tourist who are walking on the street.

Looks nice and the staff were friendly enough. Free glass of prosecco. So far so good. That's were it went downhill. Some prices of bread we were given were so hard you could hammer in a nail with them. The mixed meat platter was four pieces of very cheap meat served on a bed of browning lettuce. The "fillet" steak... More
