We went to this restaurant three times in a week! It is proper Italian cooking and not over-priced. Cool and relaxing room with views to the park opposite.

This restaurant is wonderful From the moment you arrive until you leave. The owners, all family, are wonderful. The brothers are so nice. The Swordfish is incredible, the mussels, the bread, the olive oil. We had dinner twice during our stay in Taormina. Love the open kitchen. The absolute best.

We recently had 3 nights in Taormina and ate here every night! This restaurant was recommended by our hotel owner. We enjoyed every meal we had here. We had 3 different pasta meals between us: baked ricotta and macaroni, fusilli with sardines and fusilli with swordfish, the octopus salad and the minestrone soup, over these 3 evenings. It was delicious... More

The four of us enjoyed this place that was very close to our Hotel Belvedere, and the beautiful gardens are right across the street. The staff are very friendly and efficient, and the food was excellent. We all had various seafood dishes, many with pasta, and the comments were universally favorable. The prices are quite reasonable, with many of our... More

Food was OK.....shrimp pasta was very good but there was too many German/English choices on the menu and not enough Italian. Service was "spotty".

We visited this restaurant on our first trip to Taormina in 2014 and it was very good then, we booked it for our second trip in June 2016 and it was even better because they had extended the restaurant. The food is first class as is the service and it is very good value for Taormina where prices can be... More

We decided to give this place a try after walking by it a few times during our stay in Taormina. We were very happy that we did. The entrance and interior are decorated whimsically and inviting. I ordered a pasta dish, while my mother opted for a large salad for entrees. Even though the restaurant was packed that night, both... More

On the road opposite the gardens, this restaurant offers a very pleasant evening's dining option. We ate here twice during our stay and was the only restaurant that we visited twice

The entrance of this humble restaurant boast an inviting setting! Situated a short walk from the corso, it has 2 levels. Lower level was decorated with unique local ornaments and packed with hearty diners when we were there. We were escorted to the upper level which was lovely, romantic and allow you views of some bits of sea, stars and... More
