Firstly, there are 2 Deja vu restaurants listed on TripAdvisor - both in the same place and town?? Secondly, there seem to be a high percentage of average (or worse) reviews for both listings? If we had read these before we wandered in, we would probably have passed it by. And that would have been a shame as we would... More

Our meal at Deja Vu was disappointing after a week of fantastic meals around Taormina. While it's setting is nice, the food was not fresh and wasn't as tasty as the many other great nearby options. Definitely skip this one.

Deja Vu is situated just off of the main street in a courtyard, which gives it a great atmosphere - you get to sit outside but are a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the main street. The food was great as well! Only drawback was the service could definitely use some improvement!

Lovely outside area, under the trees, and excellent antipasti! The caponata was particularly good. And the "deconstructed" cannolo was to die for!

Finally we found a restaurant in Taormina where the owner was interested in providing good customer service, something lacking in Catania. The food was lovely, red wine excellent with the waiter offering additional tastings of the Etna wine. Service attentive and helpful.

The house red wine was undrinkable. The insalata Siciliana was undistinguished. The Minnestrone soup was stuffed with bread instead of vegetables. Service was prompt but impersonal. I would not recommend this pizzeria-restaurant. It sits close to the San Domenico Palace Hotel and is off the busy Corso Umberto main drag.

Situated just off the main walkway and near the San Domenico Palace hotel. The restaurant has an awesome outdoor setting and the food was great. Reasonably priced for the quality and we had a lovey evening.

Very pleasant restaurant in pleasant surroundings. We wanted to sample a traditional Sicilian dish so chose the Swordfish cooked Sicilian style. Good service, good food and wine. All in all a pleasant experience
