Really fun meals

We visited Bella Blu twice and enjoyed ourselves very much. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and great fun. They also help you with your Italian! We really recommend the pizzas and the parmigianno but beware the Mount Etna drink - tho they do fan your mouth afterwards!!

We just wanted a light lunch as we strolled round Taormina, and had been recommended Bella Blu by our travel rep. It certainly has great views, being right alongside the upper cable car station, looking out North East over the bay. I had the spaghetti and my wife had a cheese omelette. Just fine.

This was our first nite in Taormina & oh what a welcome.. Simply walking down the garden path steps created an inviting sense of anticipation... Without having to request it, we were seated window-side - the best table! The comprehensive menu afforded each guests taste. The staff was attentive but certainly not intrusive... They even graciously accommodated a request for... More

The food was excellent and we would recommend the sea bass and the fillet steak with pepper sauce. The prices are reasonable and we noticed many italians eating there ( it is reputed to have the best pizza... More

As we were guided to our table, it was quite clear this was going to be fabulous experience. The view over-looked the Taormina beach and the sky cars that transported tourist from the edge of town down to the beach was just breath-taken. The cuisine was remarkable and was complemented by the service. Our appetizers, the Calamari and Pomodoro (Tomato)... More

We randomly stopped here to have dinner during our holiday. It was a pleasant surprise. Good Italian food and reasonable prices with spectacular panoramic view of the sea. We took pizzas, and needless to say they were so yummy!! Our server was very kind and spoke at least five languages. We tried several desserts but the strawberry cake was the... More

The hotel was beautiful, set up on a hill in Taormina. We did have dinner on the outside deck and the food and staff were both great. The service at the front desk was also great.

This is a friendly restaurant serving a good range of Italian food at sensible prices - and you can watch TV at the same time as eating! If you are a Thomson client you get a 10% discount.
