Slide 1 of 3

Food was absolutely delicious - both the salad and the pasta. The portions are really big. The service was great. Loved the complimentary starter from the restaurant! Even though we had a dinner outside in February, the heating was working properly and we weren’t cold.Bear in mind that there’s a service fee of €3.50 per person and also, water is not complementary.

Great little place in the heart of Taormina. Super friendly stuff and super clean facilities. The food was OK, the portions were extra huge and their wine selection extended. The pasta was a bit undercooked (a tad stickier than your typical al dente dish) but all in all a good choice for lunch. Be sure to make a reservation as it can get really busy.

This restaurant in Sicily, Italy is absolutely fantastic! We had a wonderful dinner here. First and foremost, I have to mention that they serve generous portions of food at very affordable prices. The two of us girls left the restaurant feeling completely satisfied, and the bill was only 40 euros! It was truly great value for money.In addition to the amazing food, the restaurant has a delightful feature of live singing performances during the meal. While we enjoyed our delicious dishes, a singer took the stage and performed some captivating songs. This added an extra level of enjoyment and entertainment to the entire dining experience.The restaurant is quite popular and attracts a large crowd. However, we were fortunate enough to arrive before the dinner rush, so we didn't have to wait in line. If you want to enjoy the delicious food here, I recommend arriving before 7 p.m. to avoid the hassle of queuing.Overall, this restaurant is a hidden gem with its plentiful and affordable food, captivating performances, and vibrant atmosphere. Highly recommended to everyone!

2/5Nejc Ravnjak

Not worthThe food was not worth the money. I had a Lasagna that was poorly heated. Still cold in some places. My wife had some pasta. Better but still not specially good. Service was quite slow needing to reconfirm the basic drink of plain still water. After it went faster but still not watching where walking stepping on the dress of my wife making it dirty.The location is in the middle of the city and there are regular bikes driving in between the sitting area of the restaurant.My verdict would be if you are hungry it is ok but if not or if there is a line just go further.Also a small heads up. There is no pizza. Perhaps it was some time ago but not anymore.

5/5C Snidvongs

The food was good and it came in big portions! It’s quite popular so you probably have to wait in line for a bit. Definitely recommend to order the octopus. Its not on the menu, just show them the photo. Its soooooo good.
