Piazza Santa Caterina 7, Taormina, Italy

Serves meat, vegan options available. One of few restaurants in the city to have a separate vegetarian section on the menu that offers more than just gnocchi and spaghetti. Discount to students at Scuola Babilonia.

Almond milk cappuccino - Edit

Good for an almond milk coffee or a vegan arancino. Located centrally and good for watching the world go by. Vegan options are frozen and not freshly cooked.

Pros: Almond milk , central location

Good for a drink and watching the Main Street - Edit

Vegan options are at back of menu. We ordered soy cutlet and arancini. I enjoyed the soy cutlet as a change from pizza and pasta, comes with quinoa salad but may be worthwhile asking for a sauce as well. Arancini was quite bland. Probably wouldn't order again but I would order soy cutlet again.

Pros: Casual and relaxed atmosphere, view of Main Street, specified vegan options

Cons: Basic food

Not much for Vegans - Edit

...and nothing for Vegans with fine taste. At the end of the card there are 3 Vegan options: soy breaded cutlet, soy lasagne and arancini. The cutlet was hard, I also didn't like the bruschette pomodori very much nor the boring salad. Cocktail was good. Beer not so good.

Pros: Cocktails, large choice, Nice View

Cons: Only few vegan options , Not quite the place to eat

Not for Vegans! - Edit

I read somewhere that this place catered for vegans - it doesn't. The waiter suggested I have a pizza without cheese or a vegan arancino (not on the menu). I opted for the latter. It came on a plastic tray and had obviously just come out of a microwave. It was really dire both in texture and taste. However, if you fancy having a drink and watching the world go by, this is a great place to do that - and the waiters are entertaining too!

Pros: Location on Corso Umberto, Entertaining waiters

Cons: Not for vegans

Cheap Eats - Edit

Compared to the rest of Toarmina, this is quite cheap. Additional 10% discount for students enrolled in Scuola Babilonia. Though you get what you pay for: not the greatest atmosphere, feels more like a American deli, and food is far from gourmet. On the other hand, most of Taormina's restaurants all serve the same things at highly inflated prices and don't have a separate veggie menu. This one does have a vegetarian section in the menu composed of sub sandwiches. Vegan is possible, but this place better suited for vegetarians. Vegans will likely be disappointed. Not a panacea of veg food, but my opinion is it's the best restaurant for vegetarians in Taormina.

For drinks, it has *the best* beer selection in Taormina. Good beer is extremely hard to find in Italy, but Licchio's has imports from around Europe and also Italian craft beer (birra artigianale).

I waffle between 3 and 4 stars. In a veg friendly city I'd probably give it 3 stars, but judging it based on what else Taormina has to offer for both price and selection this deli stands out in the city. Plus I love beer, so that gives it a bump.

Pros: Cheap, Excellent beer

Cons: Atmosphere, Could have better food selection
