Relaxing bar, went a few times during our stay in Taormina. Always welcoming, friendly service. Good place to watch the world go by on the main street in Taormina. Good choice of beers - developed a taste for Ulysses, one of the craft beers available (great but like most craft beers not cheap).

This is a great bar in a prime location on Corso Umberto, and it has quite a cool, alternative vibe with the great staff and the soundtrack. We came here twice, sat outside for an early evening spritz and nibbles, and returned later after dinner for some drinks. They also have indoor seating and good air conditioning, it was fun... More

A nice little bar on the main drag. Friendly welcoming staff with Paulaner on tap and Sicilian craft beers by the bottle. Try them all!

Stopped on my wandering for a liquid refreshment, very friendly staff, great spot for watching the day go by and people watching, bit of music in the background helps as well.

This place is very popular,so,if you are lucky enough to get a table,especially outside on the pavement,enjoy! Here we enjoyed an excellent lunchtime panini and bruschette , alongside tasty complimentary nibbles. This is a first rate place to relax and watch passess your on the main street through Taormina,Umberto Corso.

This bar is the place to be! We visited here several nights on our trip to Taormina. The staff remembered us and each of our drinks without prompting and we were well looked after. The staff are friendly and service is really good even when busy. Prices are also good considering the very central location. We were lucky enough to... More
