Great little find right in the centre of Taormina! Lively atmosphere and lovely staff. We stopped by on several occasions for drinks and/or snacks and were never disappointed. The cocktails were delicious and reasonably priced and the food top quality. We ordered a plate of light food/ tapas to share between the 4 of us and the lady who prepared... More

A little haven to chill away from the crowds with a drink. Service good and staff friendly. Food excellent especially if you are looking for something light or a snack. Location good to watch the world go by, we went here several times during our holiday and would recommend you stop by and take a break from sightseeing

We spent four night in Taormina and three off them we at the Re di Bastoni, enjoying the lively Jazz music, great food, wine and beer.... More

I've been in Taormina in the September. I loved Taormina and especially Re di Bastoni. The place is full of surprises! For instance, we went there twice in one day. In the afternoon we ate very delicious bruschetta and drink local beer. In the same day, in the evening when we were just walking I heard a great music from... More

We had a nice salad and panini here for a lighter lunch. Cute place, big beer selection. Service was good, of the typical, unhurried Italian variety. Sit inside for quieter/calmer lunch, outside to people watch- it's on a busy street.

Just one word for this bar..... Amazing! We are staying in Taormina for 11 nights and been here for 7 so far and every night we have spent many hours drinking in this amazing bar and watching the beautiful people of Taormina walk past. The bar has the most friendliest staff from emanual and Micky who serve outside to the... More

Just back from our 5th visit to Taormina and once again spent many lovely times eating and drinking at Re di Bastoni. The staff are lovely and spend time chatting with you. The food is excellent, we particularly like the Tommy panini and bruschetta. The fresh orange juice made from Sicilian oranges is very nice, as is the coffee. We... More

This is my all-time favourite bar in Sicily! The atmosphere is wonderful. The staff super-friendly. The drinks REALLY good... I had 3 White Russians tonight! I always leave Di Bastoni with a glowing feeling. I can't recommend it highly enough! I was there last year, and I'll be back next year (and tomorrow!).

Really nice local bar with friendly staff and a good spot for people watching on the main street through Taormina. Shame about the 80s decor with orange rag rolled walls but everything else is good and can recommend a visit here.
