We went for an early Sunday lunch (5/3/17) with four friends down from Scotland & were made to feel welcome from the start. The children's' food was brought out first with the starters which was great & made a nice change - I never can understand why other restaurants often bring it after the adults' food! We all enjoyed our... More

It pains me to write this as obviously the 'friends' are working hard to get a great reputation and in fairness to them, to be #1 in the town is admirable for such a young establishment. Maybe we just chose the wrong night or we are overly fussy. Food can go wrong at any time but on this occasion it... More

I've been in Taormina more than once (last time was Valentines day 2017) and every time I've left the place really satisfied. The place totally deserves the 4 stars. The food is good, the restaurant is nice, the members of the staff are friendly and the price are fair. Another thing I like is that they put special menus for... More

Excellent combination of rustic and good quality recepies. The food was a delight to eat especially enjoyed the leek and potato soup topped with a poached egg. The ciabatta bread was worth shooting someone for, well seasoned and aromatic. The key word here is fresh fresh fresh! So don't be in a hurry,if you want fast go to Burger King.... More

Went for a meal with friends on a Saturday night and waited for nearly an hour to be served a starter - while the food was lovely when it arrived the service was incredibly slow

We met friends here following a recommendation and were very impressed. Our starters, main courses and desserts were all delicious. The mini Arancini were ab fab. The calves liver was a very generous portion and was melt in the mouth delicious. Sea Bass was also very good. My husband rated the Tiramisu as one of the best he has had.... More

We were visiting the area on 14th/15th February, we booked a table for two as we needed to eat and realised it was Valentines evening and thought tables would be difficult to find. The booking was totally on spec with no prior knowledge of the restaurant, What a find, residents of Crawley you are very lucky to have a restaurant... More

Taormina is myself and my brother's favourite local restaurant. Whenever we need a good catch-up, we book a table and enjoy the best meal in town! We are always treated like long-lost family by the staff and it seems that way with everyone. They go out of their way to make you feel at home, without being intrusive in any... More

Description
We are a new independent restaurant, owned by three friends who want to bring you a truly special culinary experience, almost making you believe that you could be sitting in Taormina, Sicily and not in Crawley. Our menus are traditional Sicilian fare, which include a wide selection of fish dishes, thus moving away from the trendy chain restaurants we will introduce you to a friendly new restaurant experience where it's all about our customers being content. Of course there are some traditional Italian dishes that should never be replaced and we will always try to accommodate our customer's desires where possible. We look forward to introducing you to Taormina Restaurant's stylish and relaxed ambience very soon. Arrivederci
