I ate here a number of times and found the food to be fabulous and the staff super friendly. The seafood as well as the pasta choices were excellent and melted in my mouth.

A little off the main road in the old town. Quiet. We ate on the outdoor terrace ( no views but nice). Service was excellent. Food was ok but not to go out of the way for.

Cheerful, friendly and efficient staff. The food was good, we especially enjoyed the catch of the day (fish). One of the best restaurant in Taormina.

We visited this lovely restaurant twice when we were in Taormina. The service was very friendly and efficient. We would recommend the veal Marsala, the meatballs with lemon and the squid. The house wine were excellent. Ron and Sue

We stumbled across this place and thought we would try it out. It is a bit off the main drag and has quite a small entrance that you could easily miss. Inside, it opens to a large courtyard, with lots of seating. It is fairly...More

A nice meal for our first night in Sicily. Good food but not overly exciting. The polpettes with lemon are one of the better dishes as are the gnocchi gorgonzola.

May be too late for you, but my wife is coeliac and we had two excellent dinners here. She had pasta for one of them, maybe fish for the other. No problem at all. Great place.
