During our 4 days trip to Sicily with friends, we had dinner at Shelter twice. We were pleasantly surprised by the very nice people and excellent food and wine, which made us decide to come back the next evening. Pancrazio, Luciano (who is also fluent in Dutch) and their team will give you an unforgettable dinner at a good price.... More

There are many restaurants in Taormina, but this one is a real find. The food is excellent, the staff most friendly and the ambience very pleasant, You couldn't ask for more. After the first night we have been back there for 3 more times. We can only recommend it. The dishes have been very delicious, we enjoyed it all. They... More

We had lunch here and a few days later we went back for dinner! Food and service were excellent. Bruschetta came as a free starter for everyone. We had the stuffed sardine starter which was quite good. Bit too many breadcrumbs though? Fresh fish ( sea bass) was well cooked and interestingly presented. Oil and basalmic vinegar from their shop... More

Went to the restaurant twice as it was so good. The salads were brilliant, (orange, pine nut, raisin, capers), the food was excellent and the service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant and will seek it out again if we return to Taormina.

Great pizza, authentic flavours. Tasty aubergine starter. Good wine. Pleasant staff, attentive and welcoming. Flower sellers politely asked to move on ... Look out for it down a side street, worth a detour.

We ate at shelter three times during our week in Taormina, and were thrilled each time. The pizza and salad were fabulous and the house wines were great recommendations. Our two dinners were slightly more elegant, but still relaxed and friendly- each dish better than the last -it is a must visit spot.

We had a great dinner in this lovely place just off the main road. The menu is great but the recommendations of the day were even better. We had delicious fish and our son claimed his pesto pizza was the best ever. My husband made the remark 'it does not feel like restaurant food but more like joining a sicilian... More

We found this by accident and loved it. Had the fresh grilled fish and salads every night. They brought a wonderful liqueur on the house after dinner evey night. Our last night we got on-the-house Proseco too (the point being they were very frendly and welcoming.) Their english was very good. A small restaurant with a sophisticated environment.
