    Very good simple restaurant. Food was delicious, atmosphere and service was medium. You should try their delicious first courses. Ravioli are very tasty.. as the black spaghetti.

    Must go in Taormina! Great service and great food. We ordered sea food pasta and it’s highly beyond our expectation. The pasta is cooked at the perfect time.

    A small, busy restaurant. Food was excellent. We had tomato bruschetta served warm to start, with homemade olive oil. I had the seafood risotto which was full of mussels, clams, squid and was really yummy. My husband really enjoyed the fillet steak with a very peppery peppercorn sauce - just as he likes it. All accompanied by an excellent bottle of local Grillo wine. We would happily return.

    A diner sitting next to us at a different restaurant the night prior, highly recommended Malvasia for their food and great service. Everything tasted great and did not disappoint.

    This is a friendly family-run restaurant and you get the impression it is popular with the locals which is a good sign. We had a table on the street which was a little noisy, but the food and service were good. Highly recommended for traditional tratoria style food in a friendly setting with reasonable prices.

    Run by the the same owner and chef as the restaurant U Lantirnaru in Limi8na we stopped here for lunch during our visit to Taormina. We were welcomed with open arms by the owner herself and had a most delicious meal. Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end! Excellent quality/price ratio. Should be highly recommended.

    A nice welcome at this restaurant which is near to the Catania Car Park in Taormina. We were seated at a table inside the restaurant and quite happy with this as it was a very warm evening and quite crowded on the terrace. Attentive service and excellent food. My ravioli with shrimp and pastichio was fab and my partners steak was perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the team work of the staff and would highly recommend.

    Sicilian on point! Genuine and delicious and as a matter of fact quite elegant. Having spent a week in Taormina and tried numerous restaurants - this is definitley one of the gems. For main course we really recommend the grilled swordfish, clams cooked to perfection, as well as the fried seafruits. Honest cooking with a light touch. Service is effective yet personal and very friendly and wine recommendations on point. Do not leave this place without trying their version of the classic dessert tiramisu, this is a wonderful calory-cloud-perfection. La mamma in the kitchen oversees the operation with a firm and very skilled hand, molto bene! We love it!

About the restaurant

DUE PASSI DAL DUOMO - Il Ristorante Malvasia si trova nel cuore di Taormina, giusto a due passi dal Duomo medioevale. Il locale si presenta come un ambiente decisamente semplice, quasi spoglio, ma la cordialità del personale mette a proprio agio i clienti.

CUCINA SICILIANA - Il menù è ricco di proposte tipicamente sicule. Si va dalle panelle, che vengono servite come antipasto, agli involtini di pesce spada e, naturalmente, non mancano la pasta con le sarde e l'impepata di cozze. Coloro che invece preferiscono un pasto meno completo, possono optare per le pizze che vengono preparate in tanti modi diversi.

A BUON PREZZO - Rispetto agli altri locali cittadini, la struttura propone dei prezzi decisamente convenienti.
