    A historic ruin in the middle of asphalt, traffic and lots of concrete. Cute, but could be much better exploited since it's actually one of the two main entrances of the old city. We walk and street: nothing to do or to look in particular.

    This port is the port that you enter in the beautiful Taormina. Is a beautiful door. And it is very caratetistica

    Ancient Roman gate located at the entrance of the real Center of the country. It is not the only present in Taormina. Past the door you enter the "movida." nothing earth-shattering.

  • Food was okay, nothing special but whats the deal with an €8 "service charge per person"? We ended up paying over €50 for a pizza, a few drinks and a caprese salad!
  • Nice view, relaxed attitude, medium prices. Recommend it on a sunny day
  • Most incredible, fun,delicious and informative cooking class with full participation, personal certificates and lovely apron. Full menu and recipes for local fresh Sicilian fare. After shopping at the local market we learned how to cook Sea bass, stuffed sardines, breaded Capone, raw local red shrimps, eggplant Parmesan, home made pasta, home made breads. Enjoying buffalo mozzarella, home made pizza marinara , antipasto with pepper cheese, olives, sun dried tomatoes and locally grown mango pancakes, all orchestrated by Stefan, Pepe, and Senior plus many friendly attentive servers. Excellent cappuccino, house wines. Clean interesting cheery atmosphere. Easy location. By far the best meal I have ever had !!
  • Just don't bother, overpriced! The food is just not up to standard in any capacity. You have so much choice in Taormina so choose another place. And upset tingly the price wasn't even lower than other places.
  • Good food, kind staff.
