Took a chance and just walked in, luckily got an outside table, on a perfect night. Many people that tried just after us were reluctantly and politely turned away. So definitely make a booking, we just got lucky.

We shared a vegetable entrè that wasn't even on their menu, they didn't bat an eyelid when we asked.
Mains were pasta sarde and spaghetti carbonara.

Both were well made made and well presented.

I would return and recommend to friends.

We were walking in Taormina wondering where to go for dinner.I asked an Italian lady who who closing her shop for the day.She told me to go there.what a great recommendation.Thank you.
The family run restaurant made us feel feel like we are a member of their family.Giovanni who offered a bottle of Cabernet as half bottle,cause I was intrigued to taste Sicilian cab.Charged me half bottle price,so generous.The wife Mela (who is the boss!) and her sister Caterina were so nice.
We sat outside .the food was excellent and the ambience was lovely.just go to experience this place.

Our hotel concierge made a reservation for us at this popular restaurant. We were only able to have a table inside, which was a shame. There wasn't much opportunity to enjoy the ambience suggest by many other reviews. As we were inside & upstairs we did find the service to be quite slow as the restaurant was very busy. The staff were very heldful and the welcome drink on arrival was a pleasant surprise.

The delightful Menu was explained fully to us and all dishes sounded delightful. The raw fish platter was huge and possibly would have been better to share. The octopus salad was delicious. Our mains consisted of macaroni with fish ragu & tagliatelle with local scampi. Both were excellent.
The desserts were extremely well presented and delicious.

Advice is to book in advance to secure an outside table.

Genuine italian cuisine, soo Italian location with alott of flowers. Beautiful restaurant and a great staff, was smiling upon entry and was smiling with my stomach when i left. Be shure to make a reservation at least a day before. Great location near the main street. This is a must visit restaurant.
