The pasta Ragu and the lasagna we had were both as flavourful as any we had ever eaten. Salad was just ok because the dressing was flavourless. The bread was also just ok. However, the pasta was memorable and worth a return visit.

This restaurant had been recommended to us and it certainly didn't disappoint. We were given a table upstairs but facing the street so it was a good spot to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Food was really tasty and wine reasonably priced with a good selection....More

Maybe 15 minute walk It's just a couple of blocks past the Royal Hawaiian. Or 5 minutes by uber (if you have a rental car you'll probably spend more time parking than if you walk from your hotel!)

Description
Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options.Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (Sea Urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment Dolci (dessert) selections of house made desserts.
