The service was very friendly in this nicely laid-back bar.. orange painted wall on one side...13th century (?) original stone on the other. The staff were friendly and helpful in choosing local wines and the appertisers were a meal in themselves

Stumbled across this place when walking down corso umberto. Small but great atmosphere and good drinks menu. Brought us snacks to go with our drinks and all reasonably priced. Great to watch the world go by.

Lovely cosy bar, good bier, the best bruschetta and calming jazz! Step inside from the hustle and bustle of Tauromina's Main Street! A great find.

Very nice place to visit. The location is great in the middle of Corso Umberto street, especially if you sit outdoors. The staff are friendly and helpful. Drinks were great, the Sicilian beer is a must try!
