My pasta arrabiata was a very small portion surrounded by halves of tomato. the pasta itself was okay but one of the tomatoes was rotten. My daughter had bruschetta and the bread used was stale and burnt, thus inedible. all at a very expensive price. Avoid this restaurant!

Bad food ! ask for price before ordering because price depend on your look. This place is a shame. Clearly authority should control this type of establishments because it is a disgrace for tourist.

We enjoyed our lunch in this restaurant sitting outside the front entrance. We received a friendly welcome from the waiter and our order was taken promptly and the service was quite speedy.

Stopped here for lunch as it was so nice to be able to sit outside in the sunshine in the middle of January. Should have got up and walked away when seeing the 3€ coperto and 5€ for water prices. Ordered 2 beers and pizzas instead as the setting was glorious. The wife got her undercooked 4 cheeses pizza, which... More

We bought here one of the best arancinis in Sicily during our stay. We ate them just by standing like the locals and enjoy the taste and the spectacular view!

Like most places in Taormina (it's actually the whole town setup) this place offers minimum quality at much higher than warranted prices. If you are here on a day trip and don't like to be taken, buy a sandwich or look for a fast food place.

Great location, but just OK food considering everything was expensive. The cover was very high at 3 euros per person. Typical pasta and pizza. Open the whole day which is nice and convenient.

The restaurant occupies a very good position on the square. Even though it was very busy when we arrived, the waiter spent time helping us to choose both food and wine which were very good, served in a timely manner and less expensive than others in Taormina.

The food was quite nice. Service rather lacking in charm and not much help offered with menu explanations. Excellent location in a prime spot.

Doesn't look much at a glance but decent food, pleasant staff and not too costly. Great spot for people watching, like most Taormina restaurants it takes a bit of time to receive your food but don't hold that against them it's kinda normal.
