Warm, inviting, and unassuming, Taormina's best pizzeria produces deliciously seared crusts topped with fresh, well-balanced ingredients. Try the pizza alla Norma, featuring the classic Sicilian combination of eggplant and ricotta—here, in the province of Messina, it's made with ricotta al forno (cooked ricotta), while in the province of Catania, it's made with ricotta salata (uncooked, salted ricotta). The restaurant also offers fresh fish in summer, and there's a good list of Sicilian wines. Choose between small tables on two levels or on a terrace.

Very unassuming decor. Plastic chairs and tables that they stabilize with stones, but absolutely delicious pizza and pasta. Had penne pasta with eggplant in a light tomato sauce that was fabulous. Also, pizza that was delicious although a little burned on the bottom.
