That was the wellcoming place for our group. Quite nice. We were there in our last Holiday evening. The place was quite busy, servise very polite. Pizza was good, almost as good as in Joensuu, Finland!

My husband and I had a cooking class today with Stefano. He taught us how to make many dishes including home made macaroni, bread, stuffed anchovies, a tuna dish, swordfish dish, couscous, and an eggplant dish. We got to sample local cheese, meat, grapes, wine and olives. We also ate everything we made! Stefano made the cooking class interesting by... More

We ate here as part of a tour which limited the menu selections severely. Servers were bland as was the food. Service slow. Difficult to know if our experience was typical for this restaurant.

Brilliant welcome and wonderful food. Steffan the owner did us proud, ably supported by his friendly staff. Prosecco, Antipasta, pumpkin filled ravioli and a superb fish of the day made for a really nice meal. Thanks Stefan. Would highly recommend.

I signed up the family for the cooking class. It was excellent and would highly recommend it. We meet Stefano at the restaurant and Stefano took us to a local market to show us typical Sicilian fare, fish, produce, meats, etc. It was actually interesting to learn about the different types of seafood/fish and what is local, or frozen or...

I did this class at the Pizzeria Porta Messina with my teenage daughter in October. It was much more than just making a pizza. We made pasta and bread from scratch. We were given some history on Sicilian cookery, flours, the ways to create different doughs and many other fun facts. We were fed and watered constantly with snacks, coffees,... More

My husband and I stopped at this quaint pizzeria. The service was quick and the food was good. We only had an hour in Taormina and we decided to eat.

We had a great pasta and pizza making lesson that I would recommend it to those aspire to make their own pizza or wish to start a business. The chief will do a lot of activities during those classes and explain the history of the true Italian pizza evaluation. I am keen to try all I was thought whenever I... More

We sat outside on the patio for our dinner. We ordered the Sicilian antipasto as our appetizer and spaghetti with meatballs and the Teatro Greco salad for our main courses. The antipasto was good - there were a couple of items that stood out. The salad was OK - there was a good selection of vegetables (green beans, carrots, tomatoes,... More
