Climb up the narrow alley (hence the name) to reach this restaurant where you'll be seated on the rooftop terrace (indoor & outdoor available) with a nice view. Excellent service and extremely friendly staff. Great menu and wine list. One has to know that in fancy Taormina everything is much more expensive than elsewhere. All in all a positive experience....

This restaurant is reached by climbing steps up a very narrow alley. When inside you climb again into a wonderful glassed in rooftop patio. Even in October we were able to eat out on the veranda. The food choice is excellent but it is the quality that is the real marker here. The price is fair for the quality of... More

We walked passed the entrance twice as its the smallest alley in Taormina but it was worth finding. The food, ambience and staff all made for a very good evening. The only drawback was that when we went it was raining heavily so we couldn't take advantage of the terrace.

We called in here during the day and booked to eat before the opera, which is virtually next door. Recognised when we arrived in the evening and an altogether pleasant experience. By now hooked on the excellent Sicilian pasta! Worth visiting for the approach alone (a much photographed narrow alley way with steps). As elsewhere in Taormina, good advice on... More

The walk up the tiny alley to the restaurant is a memorable start to a lovely night. We'd booked which meant we had a table overlooking the rooftops of the Piazza and the attentive and subtle service matched the location. We had the Tuna and the Lamb for main courses which were outstanding. A welcome glass of wine and amuse... More

Came here due to its good reviews on here and was not disappointed. The service was spot on and waiters were very attentive. They brought out a lovely selection of breads, small wine and soup to begin (cover charge is €5 per head for this but we'll worth it). The food was lovely, we had the ravioli and seafood risotto....

Our first dinner in Sicily where the food is wonderful but two weeks later Vicolo Stretto remains one of our best food memories on the island. Definitely need a reservation. Great service, warm happy ambiance. A total winner.

My wife left the restaurant quiet and later told me that the waiter had brushed up against her far to many times whilst serving the courses for it to be an accident. It happened again on the way out as I was paying the bill.

We always love the food of Vicolo Stretto. The food is always delicious. We went back for a second time on Friday. However, we booked a table at 7pm. The restaurant is getting very busy, and with only one host and one waiter. Our food came to tables are cold. It's quite disappointing with the late service. We had two... More

There are plenty better restaurants in Taormina however we were with friends on a recommendation from their hotel... ... On arrival the atmosphere was more of morgue than lively Mediterranean restaurant and we were ushered outside on to a rather damp balcony by an unsmiling waiter who filled his jacket like a prize fighter. He soon reappeared with a special... More
