My wife and I enjoyed our dinner in the family-run Restaurant, located just off the main corso in downtown Taormina. It had been recommended by our Villa Carlotta staff.

My wife does not like fish whereas I do, but there is something for everyone here.

I enjoyed a lovely Shrimp with lemon infused Risotto followed by veal in Marsala sauce. My wife had a beautiful mixed salad and then Maccheroni alla Norma. The tiramisu at the end was perfect. All this was washed down with a lovely crisp white Insolia, 2016 from
Butera.

All this and attentive service from the various family members during a usual busy Sunday night for 83 euros. Excellent food and great value! Highly recommended.

Returned to this restaurant having really enjoyed a couple of years ago. It remains excellent. So good we ate there every night of our week stay, something we haven't done before. All dishes were freshly cooked and well presented. The atmosphere and quality of service were relaxed and added much to the meal.
We highly recommend this restaurant, good choice on the menu and reasonably priced for the high quality provided.

A friend was recommended this restaurant by the owner of the air bnb where he was staying. It was a truly wonderful location and ambiance - tucked in down one of the little alleyways - and the outside seating made the most of a beautiful night. The service was excellent - very attentive. The food was very good, on average - some things such as the burrata with zucchini blossoms and the limoncello dessert were spectacular. Other things were just average. Wine was very nice. Prices were very reasonable.

Very attentive and welcoming staff.
La Piazzetta does what Italian food does best, combine few but excellent ingredients to create a magnificent meal.
