Glad to have found this slightly off the beaten track joint in Taormina. Exceptional pizza. Novel and scrumptuous caponata, with the usual eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, and capers--but also potatoes and pine nuts. And luscious house red wine by the reasonable carafe.

These guys put so much cheese on their pizzas. But if you like that you won't be disappointed. The atmosphere is nice, in a square off the main part of Taormina but well signposted. Calamari was nice and served with a small side of vegetables....More
