    Beautiful restaurant in the center of everything. A really great find in the off-season; we practically had the place to ourselves. The service was excellent, and the seafood tasting menu was amazing. Wine pairings made it even better. Fairly reasonable for a complete tasting menu of this caliber.

    A rip-off experience. The portions were extremely small. We left hungry. No gluten-free pasta was available during the weekend. No wine by the glass was available either. Three options for wine bottles were not available although the wines were listed on the wine list. No amuse bouche was offered to us. First the starter was served, then the wine. As the portions were so small we left almost drunk. Desert menu was not offered to us. Lessons learnt: Never again.

    AmaIng view and ambiance. Highly recommend for a romantic date, the food was mostly delicious but serving sizes were very small, and quite pricy for the size. Service was excellent.

    A bit disappointing regarding the price-food value. Nothing special about the food, nor wine pairings. In general I would give 2.7 out of 5, just for a correct service and location.

    Fantastic staff. Food was delicious if a little large when it came to the portions (we had the tasting menu). While overall a lovely experience I will say I feel they’re still riding the coattails of a Michelin recommendation from 2020. However, would still recommend.

    5 very high quality level we are not millionaires but when we go to a restaurant we choose the best of the selections from the Michelin guide. the most reliable. and this time too we were not wrong. we chose this restaurant for the balcony overlooking the center of taormina. the food was also delicious, i got the red prowns and the pasta with crab. very high standard. prices adjusted to the level.

    Amazing atmosphere and good service. Nice wine list but the quality of food was a massive disappointment. Our waiter was great, brought complimentary desserts and one main course was taken off the bill. We would love to come back if food improves!

    Terrible bland food, all pastas were the same noodle despite differing descriptions, 190 euros for 1 lobster, then charged 50 euros for napkins and bread service. How this place is a Michelin mention is beyond me. Would never return, don’t waste your time and money

    Fantastic experience with lovely service. We wanted to practice our Italian so the staff agreed to speak to us (slowly) in terms we could understand - small gesture but made the experience so great! Food was incredible, and the sommelier suggested a wine based on your order. Would definitely recommend and return.

    lovely place. our favorite although the most expensive we ate at in Sicily. the high bill is compensated by the fantastic food and the enchanting location overlooking the square of taormina and the sea. very high quality.
