Unfortunately, the restaurant is poor in comparison with others in Sicily. The portions are small for the prices asked.The starters are mediocre and the main dishes (fish) are descent, however for a dinner you should order at least two of them. The staff is nice, however communication in English is difficult. I wouldn't come back.

Absolutely amazing restaurant. Nothing fancy, you'd come there for a food, not an interior. My wife and I dined out outside (see the picture). They've got a fixed menu so my advice is to start with appetizers first as you may not have any room left for the main course... Simona, the owner was very friendly and helpful. The waiter... More

I spent with my family the Christmas lunch. The menu and wine was very good. I was impressed by the quality of the food and of the ingredients. Loads of fish cooked in very different ways. Stuff was very friendly. The only negative thing is that the place is a bit small so not always the disposition of the table... More

The food was cheap, gross, and rushed. One dish was baby shrimp in a cup of Thousand Island dressing. The food that was offered resembled the rejected food left at a bad seafood buffet. There are so many amazing seafood restaurants in Sicily. This is NOT one of them.

My wife and I made the effort to seek out this restaurant a couple of weeks ago, and you should as well. To reach the restaurant, it is a walk of about 300 meters from the main piazza parking lot at the top of the hill, but more than worth it. Simona greeted us and explained in Italian that the...

We took the bus from Taormina to see the medieval village of F'Orza D'Agro and just happened to wander in to La Montagnola for lunch. What a piece of good luck! There was no menu. The hostess met us as we entered and said they had only fish today and would that be OK. It was fine with us. She... More

We went from Giardini Naxos to eat here, as we read positive reviews on this place. After we drove all the way there about 30 minutes, we finally managed to reach this place by foot, as it is not accessible by car. When we entred the restaurant, we were welcomed by the host, I uess it might be the famous... More
