We took the cable car down from Taormina to the restaurants by the shore one evening, and visited Ristorante Castellucio. We were seated in the garden, and as soon as I saw the anti-mosquito candles, I was worried. We had not been bothered by mosquitoes at all high up in Taormina. Here, we were eaten alive by the mosquitoes and... More

We decided to escape the very busy Taormina, so took the cable car down to try out some of the restaurants along the coastal road. We discovered this little restaurant and were seated in their beautiful garden under the olive trees. Soft background music and candles dotted around the garden gave a lovely ambiance, very friendly waiters and the food... More

We went down the cable car from Taormina to Mazzaro and didn't like what we found as a town! SICILY NEEDS PAVEMENTS! The queue back up was horrendous so we decided to stay and eat. There were only a few in which was not a good sign but it did fill up as the evening progressed. Climbing over steps through... More

My family and I spent a lovely evening in this beautiful authentic restaurant. The food was excellent and the staff extremely friendly. The food we had was fresh, cooked at perfection and beautifully presented. We had seafood, fish, pizza and pasta dishes, something from every taste. Very family friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We can highly recommend it to experience both... More

My wife & I had dinner here tonight & it was delicious. Enrico & the staff were super friendly & were very thorough when it came to ordering with my food allergies(seafood & nuts). The lasagne was amazing. Tiramisu was the best we ever had. Outdoor dining area was nice & relaxed with nice background music. We will definitely eat... More

We ate outside, the meal was very good and the waiters were attentive and polite, they had large candles on the floor for mosquitos, there were Italian people sat nearby and had a candle placed near them, although the mosquitos were troubling us we were told that a candle near us would inconvenience the waiters. We couldn't complain about the... More

We ate here on 2 evenings on the outside terrace at the rear. It was stunning on both occasions. The raw fish starter was excellent ,I ordered a prawn cocktail ,which wasn't on... More

Looking from the street it's good but backyard garden is really nice. The garden is spacious and tables are under big olive trees. First time we had nice selection of silician antipasti and they were the best we had during stay in Sicily. Then came fish, very nicely done, tender and moist, very professionally filleted by the table. Good selection... More
