While the view was beautiful, they wouldn't let us sit on the veranda even though dinner service wouldn't be for another 2-3 hours minimum. The service was average. No one was rude, but no one stood out. The drinks were priced fairly given the location....More

As we toured through Taormina we randomly chose this place to grab some lunch, mainly because the sign said it had a great view from the patio and they weren't lying! The view was outstanding! Comfortable place to relax and have a drink while you...More

We had lunch here yesterday. It is just off the main street in taomina. A lovely cool oasis from the heat of the day. We sat on the terrace overlooking the bay. Fabulous views. We both had a salad which was about 7 euros each....More
