Came across this restaurant's back door unexpectedly after walking through a long corridor of ancient arches. Wonderful friendly service from an attentive, but not invasive, waitress with the chef himself coming to take our order. The Sicilian orange salad was a unique taste experience, and every subsequent course lived up to it. Highly recommended -- seek it out!

We were first customers this season, so chef himself took our order, told us about dishes and handled the staff as they were new and a bit scared, but still very pleasant. During our dinner flower-man entered, the chef stepped out of the kitchen and calmly showed with the finger that he does not allow to bother their customers. It... More

On our first visit to Taormina 2013 we dined here on two separate occasions and were very impressed. So on our return to Taormina in 2016 we paid another visit. I have to say we were not disappointed. We received the same high level of service as on our first visit, and of course most importantly the food was excellent.

We had pleasant birthday dinner on the second floor. Service was very warm and professional, food interesting and good and view in the inner yard is simply breath taking. Recommended for a fine dining in Taormina.

Let me start by saying I've been to Taormina 3 times and this restaurant is hands down the absolute best when it comes to food, ambiance and service - and at the price this restaurant offers amazing value. I will return every chance I get! I was recently married in Sicily (I reside in the US) and chose Ristorante Le... More

I had been advised to dine here but approaching down an alley I was dubious. We were shown through to the seating area by the Roman wall where we had a beautiful, well cooked meal served professionally. This is a classy restaurant - well worth a visit and a return visit perhaps!

We ate here on October 26th. The location is ideal and the service and food were excellent. The staff provided excellent advice regarding local wines; and we could not fault the restaurant. We would certainly visit again when we return to Taormina.

I normally don't leave negative reviews but thought I would share our experience here. First the good points, nice restaurant decor, off the beaten track, friendly staff and pretty good service. What really surprised us was the food quality. For a restaurant purporting to be up market and costing circa €50+ per head, the food was very poor. I ordered... More
