Lovely View Great Service

Romantic meal for two sat in front row, service was excellent, you pay for view but it's worth it. We shared a mixed starter, pasta alla Norma and Prawns for main shared a lovely local desert. Prawns were maybe not as good as southern Portugal but I'm being picky now. Would recommend just for view.

The Granduca provides breathtaking views, top notch service and great food. Although there are some pricey options, we had three tasty courses for what turned out to be one of the most reasonable meals out in our stay (and we ate out a lot). In fact we even returned for our last night and were not disappointed in the least.... More

Views from terrace are spectacular especially in the evenings sunset when all the town beneath is lit up. Food is great snd the surrounding is spacious so no overcrowding. Perfect with kids and friends to spend a relaxing dinner out.

In an unbeatable position overlooking the sea, we were privileged to get a front table enjoying the best views. Good service and excellent food made this one of our best nights in Taormina! It is reached from an unassuming entrance on the main road through the town, opening up at the back to the fantastic views.

We were in the restaurant (as supposed to the pizza terrace) as a group of 7. We booked our table in the afternoon and they couldn't guarantee us a table on the front of the balcony overlooking the sea. However, when we arrived our table was perfect right at the front of the balcony with a beautiful view. The food... More

The place a spectacular location. Service was very slow poor and confused. We were assaulted by so many wasps and for a long amount of time eating was impossible. Price was over the top for the quality offered. Cassata siciliana was a disappointment

Food is not great, there are many better restaurants in the area. Check the bill carefully as on our visit they managed to charges us for a large bottle of wine rather than the half size we ordered. Cover charge is a bit high at 3 euro a head. View is awesome during the day but at night you cant... More

This restaurant had been recommended to us and it was just as well because we probably would have passed it by on the street because you see nothing of the restaurant from the entrance. When you go inside you go downstairs to find a beautiful room with a magnificent view over the sea.The food was delicious and included a number... More

Visited this restaurant recently. There is a restaurant on the top floor and then a pizza restaurant (all under same ownership) downstairs. We tried the pizzeria and we had a very pleasant meal along with a fabulous view. The pizzas were tasty and the service was friendly and efficient. Very relaxing place with a lovely atmosphere. Would recommend.
