The chef does a riff on the menu listings, with a good hand. Spaghetti with sea urchin (uni), for example, was as unexpected as the grilled octopus appetizer. Order with confidence. Portions sizeable, pasta very al dente, and Jocco, running the front of the house,...More

This place had such amazing service and pleasant atmosphere but I have to say I was disappointed with their pasta dishes... expected something a bit more tasteful and less cheesy/salty/greasy. However, my other half did enjoy his meal so to each their own taste!

Maybe 15 minute walk It's just a couple of blocks past the Royal Hawaiian. Or 5 minutes by uber (if you have a rental car you'll probably spend more time parking than if you walk from your hotel!)

Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment Dolci (dessert) selections of house made desserts.
