The pizza and arancini were good, nothing to add. But the staff... they don'give a damn about the customers, service, kindness, needless to say cleanliness of the place. Would not recommend!

Was hungry and needed a quick place to grab some lunch. Fabulous Pizza...Incredible Cannoli! Lots of choices with the pizza, and the friendly staff made it a pleasure to go there. Do yourself a favor and give it a try when you're in Taormina.

The arancini was delicious and other small bites were good as well. When the place gets packed, you can wait for a long while. Make sure they take the time to warm up your food in the oven--otherwise you are eating lukewarm food.

Small place near Porto Catania, selling pizza, arancini and scacciate to take away, although there are a few seats available. Tried the pizza with prosciutto, and it was good, and very good value - pizza slice and a bottle of water for 4 euros. Scacciata...More
