Can anyone advise how I can make a reservation here? I have emailed several times but no response! We have eaten here a lot over many years.

Lovely location with a spectacular view. Pleasant and courteous staff provided excellent service and fine food. We ordered apps and pizzas for lunch. Relaxing atmosphere, good food, good prices, clean and reasonably priced. Would eat there again if ever we return to Taormina.

Salvo and his team were outstanding. Special shout out to Fabio who took great care of us. Everything from wine selection, food choices, atmosphere, were top notch. Far and away the best eating experience we had in Taorimina.

We arrived without a reservation and they scrambled to get us a decent table, but we were told we could only have it for forty-five minutes. No problem! We came, we saw, we conquered! About $40 per person, no apps, one drink, one entrée, no...dessert, tip included. Is this as good as a 4 star restaurant in Paris? No. But, it is when compared to other places within a thirty-minute drive (or, in this case, walk). About my ratings: In an effort to compare apples to apples, my ratings are strictly for establishments within thirty minutes travel of each-other. It makes no sense whatsoever to give five stars to a top Paris restaurant or hotel and then only give three stars to the very best hotel or restaurant on a small island simply because it’s not equal to a five star place in a big city. In my view, it's more important to say "This is the very best place you'll find in the area." As for this place, Would I recommend this place to anyone: yes. Would I return: yes.More

Absolutely perfect in every way from the friendly welcome through to the desert. Very professional staff who spoke excellent English and guided us knowledgeably through the menu. My wife always tastes the wine and 9 times out of 10 the server then proceeds to serve...me and often forgets to pour her her glass. Not here however. After she’d approved the wine they poured hers and THEN poured mine. As it should be. The Antipasti Granduca were sublime The grilled lamb chops were possibly the tenderest and tastiest we’ve ever had. The almond semifreddo was just perfect. This wasn’t our first visit and we WILL return.More

Only stopped for a beer or two. Not a problem, quite accommodating for a restaurant. Complimentary Pizza bread things were provided. (Sorry, don't know the correct name, but they were absolutely gorgeous). Warm and welcoming staff.

Made a reservation to have lunch here based on the hotel concierge recommendation. Ordered the Quattro pizza and each of the 4 toppings were separated , not all mixed together which I’ve never seen pizza served that way. Pasta Carbonara was delicious and the lamb...chops were very tasty. Great babies from the restaurant as well.More

Lovely views, food good but not impressive, some waiters not knowledgeable on the food and allergies, some waiters are cold and arrogant. Restaurant not fully covid compliant. Restaurant food and service has deteriorated from my previous visit.

We went there as highly recommended by the concierge of our hotel Mazzaro Palace. Our great expectations have been instantly putted down by the incredible attitude of the service staff. Lack of interest, slow response on orders, and the worst of all Mediocre food quality...! Pity as they have one of the best views in Town.More
