We went to that restaurant for the view and following some recommendations. Best food and view from our 10 days journey in Sicily.

This restaurant has really good food and the location is absolutely beautiful, but it is still not too expensive and the staff takes really good care of you. If you want to step out of the crowds of downtown Taormina for a while Al Saraceno is a great choice. For main course we had the beef with mushroom sauce and... More

Food quality and service great. The place was packed and I can see why. The owner was actually greeting each table which I thought was a nice touch.

We dined here for our friends 60th birthday in July. I emailed the reservation in advance and they were very helpful arranging a birthday cake and a table exactly where we wanted it, on the outside terrace with fabulous views of Mt Etna, the beautiful bay of Naxos and Guardinia Naxos below. Go for the sunset and see the red... More

2 visits in 1 week must say something! The view from the roof terrace is STUNNING, especially as when the light fades the red glow from Etna's eruption can be clearly seen. The location backing onto the old fort also gives great views of Castelmola, perched high on the opposite mountain. I learned from our first visit - starter portions... More

Was a bit concerned at first but the Manager Alfio (what a fantastic character) assured us that Etna was lika lady, she blow hot one day and next day cold.... More

I came for dinner with 2 friends on 31 July 2014. I had been once before in 2012. The food was much better this time around (last time fish was overcooked and dried out) and so was the view ... this time we could see the lines of red hot molten lava flowing from Etna - a really amazing sight...
