Overview

Taormina has a pounding heart: the Mocambo. Founded in June 1952 by Mr. Carmelino Fichera, a man whose greatest wish was to create an ideal gathering place for all those who frequented and loved Taormina. He sought to offer his patrons a real temple of amusement and antertainment, yet, also from the comfort of one's armchair, a place to pause, watch and reflect.

Get a front row seat to watch life go by. Great people watching, and great weddings going by. Prices are very reasonable. Street entertainment is also very fun. Definitely stop by for a drink or two

My wife and I stopped off for a drink here to watch the crowds of people walk by. Staff were friendly and attentive. A little on the expensive side but we were served quite a lot of nibbles to go with our drinks. Recommended.

9 euros for two truly awful coffees. Lukewarm service. Nothing to commend it. Plenty other places to get good coffee for less nearby.

The staff here were so friendly. Helped me sort my wifi. We had a little joke together about somethings. Ordered my drink and was presented with a vast amount of nibbles, well worth the price of the drink when you have all that food (which...More

Favorite place for Aperol spritz - and possibly the most expensive also in expensive Taormina. But you pay for your seat and a great assortment of snacks, so make sure you’re hungry. Professional staff.
