    Mysig restaurang och trevlig personal. Vi åt bl.a. grillad tonfisk som dessvärre stekts grå och torr. Detsamma gällde för lammracks som stekts för länge och blivit grå. Inte vår smak tyvärr. För och efterrätt var dock mycket bra. Kanske var det otur, men gjorde måltiden till bara godkänd.

    The food was average and not cheap. Wine list was good. Fish of the day was good but we were three and they brought it to the table filleted for two - having forgotten our daughter. They then took it back and it was redivided into three - not great. The potatoes it was severe with were not cooked through and cold. The antipasti were ok but nothing special - my wife had the cozze but was not offered anything to clean her hands with. Not the restaurant’s fault but we were forced to listen to the tourist band moving from restaurant to restaurant singing Neapolitan songs. It wasn’t great to see a young boy of about 8 waving a tambourine while yawning and then being made to shout his way through another song for the tourists. Again not the restaurants fault but the restaurant opposite has its extractor fan installed in its frontage so we received regular blasts of hot air on an already balmy evening. Shame as it was basically a nice place but several things went wrong consecutively.

    The restaurant was such a good find. It was recommended to us by our Italian Restaurant that we frequent in New Jersey. The food was amazing. Had such a great meal. Would definitely recommend it

    This little place is located on a tiny little street amongst many other restaurants. We ordered a mix of food but the stand-out for me were the gamberi Rossi (red prawn) tartare. It was divine! The staff were also super helpful and welcoming

    The food was good and tasty. The list of wines offered a descent choice of sicilian and Italian wines (a bit overpriced ) and the sommelier was competent suggestions. The place is nicely decorated and overall experience was pleasant. Hence the waitresses was to pushing but this is a personal impression.

    We ate lunch at Ristorante Taverna Al Paladino one day and came back the next night for dinner. We’ve been in Sicily for over a week, in different cities, and we thought Al Paladino was the best restaurant we’ve been to. The fresh fish was excellent, cream of mushroom soup and salad. delicious, and both pastas we tried were outstanding! The service was excellent— very friendly. The restaurant is on a side street and you could almost walk by it—but we are so glad we stopped in. If we come to Taormina again, we will for sure dine at Al Paladino again.

    Thanks you very much!

    It was dissapointing! The location is nice, but the food is just for tourists! Here we had the most worst spagetti ala vongole, lack of any taste! I ordered the soup of the day, the fish was raw inside and the other sea food from the soup was refregerated! The only good meal was grilled tuna, but at the time it came, we were already pissed off and couldn’t enjoy it!
