This was our favorite restaurant where we ate twice. The welcoming is very gentle and respectful, not as agressive as at the neighbours' The service is perfect. We had tuna and chicken, high in quality and low in price.

Went to the restaurant twice as it was so good. The salads were brilliant, (orange, pine nut, raisin, capers), the food was excellent and the service was great. Highly recommend this restaurant and will seek it out again if we return to Taormina.

Great pizza, authentic flavours. Tasty aubergine starter. Good wine. Pleasant staff, attentive and welcoming. Flower sellers politely asked to move on ... Look out for it down a side street, worth a detour.
