We first came here as part of a large wedding party for a post church-service, yet pre wedding-reception drinks reception, whilst the bride & groom posed for photographs; which we enjoyed immensely along with a delicious serving of antipasti & canapés. Everything was simply perfect...More

Get a front row seat to watch life go by. Great people watching, and great weddings going by. Prices are very reasonable. Street entertainment is also very fun. Definitely stop by for a drink or two

My wife and I stopped off for a drink here to watch the crowds of people walk by. Staff were friendly and attentive. A little on the expensive side but we were served quite a lot of nibbles to go with our drinks. Recommended.

Favorite place for Aperol spritz - and possibly the most expensive also in expensive Taormina. But you pay for your seat and a great assortment of snacks, so make sure you’re hungry. Professional staff.
