A magnificent villa of the 15th century splendidly restored, is the ideal setting of the restaurant-pizzeria "Granduca". Reception rooms, terraces and the garden all have a view of the sea and the greek theater, which give your meeting and receptions distinction. Cucine is typical from Sicily. It's a pleasure to eat, not only for the quality meals, but also for the beauty of the place.

Beautiful Seaside view

May be it's not the best food in Taormina and it is more of a touristic option but the view is definitely worth it and the food is still quite good. Service was quite slow despite the fact that there were only a few people but very friendly and customer oriented. My girlfriend wanted pizza and... read more

We were in a group of 20 people and was looking for a restaurant open in Taormina and we found granduca. It's a excellent place, waiters are so friendly, the sword fish was out of world! It's typical from Sicily and you must try! The chocolat dessert is awesome.

Went here based on recommendation from our B&B host. We ate dinner here after the sun had sent so the views were not visible. I had caspaccio (?sp) pizza which was perfect...the crust of this wood fired pizza was perfection. My husband had the carbonara which he enjoyed as well. Service was slow, but probably average for this island (based... More

I recently visited Taormina and found Granduca restaurant for lunch on the main shopping strip. Its location is wonderful as it has the brilliant blue sea right there. I selected the Sicilian antipasti and it was a delight. The variety of cheeses and vegetables was very good. The salume was especially tasty. The selection of breads on the table was... More

My husband and I chose this place because of the view, which is fantastic during the day, but, of course, not so much at night. The waiters are all efficient and kind, but I can't recommend this place because of the price. They charged me 30 euros for a small and not particularly tasty fish with no side! The primo... More

Lovely pizza, great views and friendly service in a buzzy atmosphere - a big Christmas party here also, the waiter included me in the fizz, which was so kind - will definitely return

Pick your seafood when you enter, go for pizza if your imagination is tired (they are excellent), do not resist and have dessert: the local flavors ( almond, lemon and pistachio) are well represented, good local wines and excellent service.

Best view restaurant in day time. At night, you have a view of a beautiful garden with tropic and lemon trees. Good food. Reasonable prices!

Recommended by our hotel staff, was not disappointed in the food quality, service or the fantastic view. We had a very nice appetizer of grilled vegetables with smoked mozzarella and entree of spaghetti with claims. A very nice fall lunch on the porch by the railing. Highly recommend it. Pay attention to the address you might miss it, the restaurant... More
