The restaurant is tucked down a side street and has a number of small eating areas, both inside and out. The staff looked after us very well and the pizzas were particularly good. Prices were reasonable compared to the average in Taormina.

We were hungry, hot, and tired after a long walk combined with exploring the Teatro Greco so we were very pleased to stumble upon this popular restaurant. Lunch was in full swing and folks in front of us got the last table on the terrace....More

We lunched here twice and on both occasions the food and service were first rate. I would recommend this restau rant to vegetarians. The staff speak good English and are very attentive.
