We stopped at Re Di Bastoni for a limoncello after dinner in Taormina. The atmosphere is relaxed but vibrant - piano accompanied by fret-less double bass.... fabulous classic music to admire and enjoy in Sicily. A must-see whilst in Taormina!

We love this bar it has a great range of local craft beers and a nice friendly atmosphere. We always get the bruschetta with oregano, delicious.

One of the least touristy bars in Taormina. In the midst of everything but nice place to sit with some good wine and occasional music.
