We were attracted by the menu outside, and were pleasantly surprised by the shrimp and pistachio pesto pasta. It was very tasty. Prices were also very small. I would definitely recommend this restaurant instead the tourist traps in the old centre.More

A outstanding lunch - honest, authentic food served with great hospitality. We had seafood salad, octopus in tomato sauce, seafood ravioli (incredible) and meatballs (delicious). Highly recommend. Thank you to the staff.

Can someone tell me, please, what a 'pud' is? Here's how it's used in TA restaurant reviews from Taormina: "Puds are limited to a half-dozen and are ok." "...regrettable we couldn't quite manage a pud" Thanks in advance, pud lovers!
