We needed a place for lunch after a morning outing but during "siesta time." Our hotel suggested and then called this place. They said they would stay open for us if we came immediately. It was not the easiest place to find tucked away up...More

Just a few steps up from the Corso Umberto you come across a lovely piazza that is quiet and charming.. This restaurant does a wide selection of super food, with really sensible wine prices.. We ate there twice in four days...

We had dinner at Pizzeria Varo. The pizza was not very good. Nevertheless the fish my wife ordered was excellent, so go for the restaurant menu instead of the pizzeria menu. Just be wary, the fish price depends on the size and the waiter hugely...More

Glad to have found this slightly off the beaten track joint in Taormina. Exceptional pizza. Novel and scrumptuous caponata, with the usual eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, and capers--but also potatoes and pine nuts. And luscious house red wine by the reasonable carafe. Well-priced and well-serviced. If...More
