We were so disappointed with the service at this restaurant and the waiter had no interest in us at all other than telling us off. As was said, so unfriendly and made to feel very unwelcome. Certainly not worth the effort of finding the restaurant, won’t bother recommending it to others. Find somewhere else to eat.

We went here for our last night in Sicily, so we have lots to compare this to. It was a lovely dinner, out on the patio on a quiet side alley. (Persist in finding it... you will pass many restaurants on the way.) We shared an artichoke appetizer, which was great. Then we each had seafood specials, which were both interesting preparations. Service was OK... we had to flag someone down for the dessert menu and were never asked about second glasses of wine.

We were highly recommended this restaurant from a previous diner & newspaper reviews & were very much looking forward to our evening. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel unwelcome. The wine we ordered was not poured to each diner, we had to pour it ourselves. Most of us did enjoy our meals however some of us received our main courses when the other diners received their entrees. When we pointed out that a few of us had not ordered entrees & were having the pastas for main - which we specified on ordering- the waiter was quite rude & aggressive & told us that the food was ready & insisted we eat them then. When paying the bill we advised the manager that we were disappointed with the service & she did nothing to acknowledge our comments therefore we have placed this review on TripAdvisor.

It seems this place is a place where locals take visitors to show them how wonderful a restaurant in Taormina can be. There were English speakers at both tables beside us, but in each case there appeared to be a local Italian with them who had introduced them to the restaurant. The lunch was a bit on the expensive side, even by Taormina standards, but we felt it was worth every penny. The staff is friendly and will speak English willingly (though they tolerated us wanting to practice our Italian). The artichoke appetizer (which my husband and I split) was excellent. I had the tuna, seared and served on top of deeply caramelized onions and topped with salmon roe. Amazing!! My husband had the pork sausage (not a fish eater, and he was very happy). We would go back in an instant and would highly recommend.
