Great gnocchi ( I asked for bolognese instead of pesto). The pizza superb. The staff very accommodating. The "capo"'s house over looks the restaurant and he makes sure the staff take care of their clients. One of our best meals in Sicily.

We had a couple of pasta dishes at this restaurant. On the plus side, the decor inside the restaurant is great and our orders were taken relatively quickly. On the downside, the quality of the food was not good; both pasta dishes were over-cooked and served on the cooler side of warm. The wine was not great either. For the... More

We visited this place for a coffee on our first day and we were impressed that so many locals were eating there. We decided to return having seen the pizzas. The pizza here is good. We noted the cover charge, went for the house wine which was fine with pizza & had a reasonable but boring salad. A local band... More

Just back from a recent holiday in Taormina. We ate 3 times in La Botte. Menu was varied. Prices very good and service was excellent, especially Daniela. I would really recommend this restaurant, it has everything you could wish for. It is no wonder that a lot of locals eat there. Thanks for some very enjoyable meals.

We went here to grab something for lunch. The spaghetti carabanara was too salty and suspect not made with egg. We had to wait for our food as other tables received their food before us when they arrived later . The spaghetti with clams was 18 euros and too al dente and was overpriced for the portion size . Staff... More

We spotted this place on our first day and couldn't book for 1st eve as it was fully booked on Saturday eve. It's obviously frequented by Italian and International famous folks with the photos on the walls. The kids shared half a portion of pasta which was plenty. No kids menu like many places we've been too - not a... More

Probably the best restaurant in Taormina. Food is fresh and delicious. Pizza is amazing. Big range of fish and meat dishes. Very good wine list. Wherever i have been i always try to taste local wines. Sicilian white Santagostino 2012 comes perfect with a local fish. The restaurant is a family run enterprise and the whole family is working there... More

We wandered into this restaurant at 9.30 pm on a Sunday night in February. It was empty but we were served and had an excellent pizza and two glasses of house red wine. The staff were pleasant and tolerant.
