The food was ok but they seemed in a hurry to get us out of the restaurant. They rushed our meals and started clearing plates while some of us were still eating.

Thank you for the review. However I disagree that we rushed you. You were here for 2 hours. I do believe that in anyone’s book that is a decent amount of time. But we apologise if some how you felt that. Perhaps because we were busy and were rushed off our feet, it looked like we were rushing you. Sorry for that, but it was a Saturday night🤷🏻♂️.

A nice soldi little restaurant with helpful patient staff. I needed a quiet place close to Paddington to meet a colleague for lunch - Taormina was perfect.

Second time we've been. Consistently good, fresh food both times with an authentic Italian menu. Personally I'd recommend the fish. Lovely atmosphere for a large family meal, or a smaller more romantic evening.

The ingredients didn't match the menu. The parma ham was normal ham. The drinks come on the bottle without cap. Probably they refill because the Coke had no gas. Overall bad experience, considering the price and the evaluation

The waiters were very surly although efficient. The pasta dishes were good, less so the fried fish.

A cozy place with a nice atmosphere. Food was ok, definitely not bad but not unforgettably delicious either.

First time at Taormina and we’ll be back. We had prawns, salad, saltimboca and liver. All excellent. Great, friendly, service

I have dined at this restaurant many times in the 1980’s and i was therefore really looking forward to taking a good friend to dine there recently. Unfortunately the waiter forgot to place my friends order with the kitchen and she was left waiting for her pizza whilst mine went cold. The pizza bases on both orders were overcooked and hard, making it difficult to cut and unpleasent. The experience ruined our evening. I will never dine there again.

The staff were friendly and efficient even though it was pretty busy around 6pm. The fish special tasted really good, as did the calamari starter. Pleasant family ambience.

The black crab pasta was amazing though the veal cannelloni was a bit dry.

My colleague got stuck in the traffic and at 9.20 pm I called the Restaurant to let them know we were running a few minutes late but was abruptly told I could not attend not good service
Taormina • Owner
Your booking was for 9.30pm. Last orders are 9.45. Please do not take it out on us if you or your guest is running late. Thanks for the review without even attending!!

I don’t know the Paddington area well so had to do some research to find a nice restaurant. Luckily I stumbled across an absolute gem with Taormina. It was perfect and I’m so pleased. The food was delicious, surroundings light and pleasant, and the service excellent. On top of that the bill was much less than I estimated. Amazing place! I’ll be back.

Exactly what I look for in an Italian restaurant (not in Italy). Subtle yet sophisticated wine list.

The prawn and the Calamari starters were excellent and very tasty. However, the pizzas we had were very disappointing due to the toughness of the pizza base. The knives provided were not sharp enough to cut through the pizza crusts and base. Toppings tasted good, but the quality of the pizza base left a lot to be desired.

Really enjoyed this place. A bit off the beaten path, easy walk from Paddington station and excellent food! Loved the grilled sardines and black crab tortellini.

The fish was off and the service was slow when we asked for our bill. The first waiter was surly. No ambience or conviviality. We don’t be returning

A family run restaurant. It’s not posh and a little cramped but good service and good food. Bustling even on a Tuesday night.

I didn’t realise I booked an offer and I felt like I was rushed through to free the table up for other diners. The sardines were not prepared properly. I raised my concerns with the waiter / manager and he was just plain rude and said what do you expect when you book an offer.

Taormina is a great little restaurant - very like places we have visited in Italy. It is not fancy, but the food is always good & the staff very welcoming.
