Overview

Taormina has a pounding heart: the Mocambo. Founded in June 1952 by Mr. Carmelino Fichera, a man whose greatest wish was to create an ideal gathering place for all those who frequented and loved Taormina. He sought to offer his patrons a real temple of amusement and antertainment, yet, also from the comfort of one's armchair, a place to pause, watch and reflect.

9 euros for two truly awful coffees. Lukewarm service. Nothing to commend it. Plenty other places to get good coffee for less nearby.

Favorite place for Aperol spritz - and possibly the most expensive also in expensive Taormina. But you pay for your seat and a great assortment of snacks, so make sure you’re hungry. Professional staff.
