Al Saraceno is at the top of the hill above Taormina Sicily. They staff brings you in and you fell like part of their family. The food is spectacular and reasonably priced. Their pizza is said by many to be the "best in the world". We had lamb and tuna with a fabulous Sicilian red table wine. A definite must... More

We came to Al Saraceno for our wedding breakfast, which was absolutely perfect. The food was really good, especially the swordfish which everyone remarked on! Alfio, the owner, is a really genuine guy who obviously cares about providing a great welcome to his customers - he made a fuss of the kids and generally put on a great party! Nothing... More

Great views of Mt Etna from the top terrace, but if seated hear later in the year, bring a cover up as it gets chilly at night. But the service is so good, the waitress noticed another diner shivering and discreetly placed a wrap around her shoulders. We had a great meal here. Beef carpaccio to start. One portion was... More

I have eaten at a lot of restaurant with fantastic views. This one is definitely close to the top of the list. The terrace overlooks Taormina, Mount Etna and Castelmola. The view is also fantastic after dark when all the lights of the surrounding area are twinkling. The food matches the views. We had a wonderful pizza with olives, arugula,... More

This is a large restaurant with a pleasant patio and a good view from high above the Taormina seaside. Food includes a wide range of southern Italian food, and lots of seafood. Everything we ate was decent: meat, pasta, risotto, salads, dessert. Nothing was outstanding with the exception of the pumpkin risotto: perfectly cooked and nicely flavoured. Wine is available...

We walked in with no booking, and were not regret. I ordered a ravioli and was delicious. The dish is not big, though.

We just had a fabulous lunch at al Saraceno. The food was fresh and flavorful. The service was excellent. The service was great. This is a very relaxed restaurant with the best view in Taormina. The wine suggestion and lunch appetizers and main course were right on. We'll talk about this lunch for a long time.

We were two couples that had a great dinner at this restaurant which offers a fantastic view, excellent service and delicious food at affordable prices. You can easily reach it by walk, bus or taxi from Taormina. We strongly recommend this restaurant.
