Food and service very good. Pasta whilst fresh was (surprisingly) rather thick and tough but tasty. Still well worth a visit - service very good with friendly staff.

My wife and I enjoyed dining here in Taormina. We'd heard good reviews about the restaurant, and were not disappointed. The mushroom ravioli were particularly superb. The atmosphere is casual, like a garden, and the wait-staff were attentive but allowed an unhurried meal. Would definitely...More

The name is misleading as there is no garden. It’s an unprepossessing restaurant but one of the few frequented by locals. The food is good as is the service but it seems the tourists are banished to upstairs where there is no atmosphere.
