Osteria RossoDiVino


in Taormina

With seating on an intimate, candlelit courtyard, this coveted nosh spot (book ahead!) is the passion project of siblings Jacqueline and Sara Ragusa. The day's offerings are dictated by the season, the local fishers' catch, and the siblings' own morning market trawl. Expect anything from heavenly anchovy tempura (the secret: mineral water in the batter) to paccheri pasta with gorgonzola crema and dehydrated pears.

Attention to detail extends to the wine list, a showcase for smaller local producers and natural wines.
