The appetizers were delicious (we ordered Parma ham and a mix of salmon and tuna. The main course arrived shortly after. Everything was great except for the entrecôte, it was a bit fatty. The ravioli was... More

While in Napoli, we felt compelled to try the famous dish that that was first made here, Pizza. This pizza was absolutely excellent. This tiny waterfront restaurant was very accommodating, service a bit slow, but totally acceptable. Perhaps that's the difference between an American diner and an Italian diner. We are way too impatient.

This good restaurant is hidden away off the Main Street in it's own small square. Great pasta and lamb dishes, some starters only mediocre. A few more smiles from staff wouldn't go amiss ... Well worth a visit.

This restaurant was the find of our holidays in Taormina - family-owned, very nice and attentive members of staff with a great atmosphere, we honestly couldn't have asked for more! Especially when a guitarist and a singer, friends of the owners, came in and started singing in Italian - it was brilliant! Food was nothing but delicious - the mozzarella... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, unfortunately only on the last night of our holiday. If we had known how good it was beforehand we would have gone every evening. I had the rolled swordfish as the second course and it was the best tasting fish I had in the whole week. The staff made us feel very special with... More

Went here on our first night on a recommendation from our hotel. We knew it was special from this first visit. We tried lots of other places in town and were never disappointed. There are many delicious places to eat in a Taormina. But we went back to La Piazzetta for a second time because we couldn't think of a... More

The owner paid great attention to all of the tables and customers. His wine recommendation was excellent and all of our dishes were perfect. The food was delicate and full of flavor. We stopped there for lunch while walking around Taormina. There are many restaurants to choose from and it can be a bit overwhelming but you won't go wrong... More

This place is good - just off the Main Street down a little alley. Sicilian menu - not a vast menu but all interesting dishes. Tuna tartar was beautifully flavoured, pasta in a sardine sauce absolutely delicious - and the house wine really good. Certainly worth a visit and much better than some of the more tourist places with vast... More
