Went to the restaurant twice as it was so good. The salads were brilliant, (orange, pine nut, raisin, capers), the food was excellent and the service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant and will seek it out again if we return to Taormina.

Great pizza, authentic flavours. Tasty aubergine starter. Good wine. Pleasant staff, attentive and welcoming. Flower sellers politely asked to move on ... Look out for it down a side street, worth a detour.

We ate at shelter three times during our week in Taormina, and were thrilled each time. The pizza and salad were fabulous and the house wines were great recommendations. Our two dinners were slightly more elegant, but still relaxed and friendly- each dish better than the last -it is a must visit spot.

We had a great dinner in this lovely place just off the main road. The menu is great but the recommendations of the day were even better.

We found this by accident and loved it. Had the fresh grilled fish and salads every night. They brought a wonderful liqueur on the house after dinner evey night. Our last night we got on-the-house Proseco too (the point being they were very frendly and welcoming.) Their english was very good. A small restaurant with a sophisticated environment.

We were actually looking for another restaurant when we found this one - the menu looked great and it was packed with people - always a good sign! This was our last night in Sicily and we ordered and ate quite a bit of food - everything was great. Their house white wine was fabulous, and the service and prices... More

We shared pizza and salad for lunch. Portions were large so we had plenty of food! We ate on the patio which gave us an opportunity to do some people watching. Recommend for a quick and inexpensive lunch.
