We had several lunches and dinners at Bella Blu we enjoyed them so much. The food was wonderful with a great choice. The staff were helpful, especially the young lady at the check out whose English was amazing. The view was brilliant and the house wine very acceptable. If you are offered the chance to have the sea bass, take... More

Staff were so helpful and accommodating. We ate here quite a few times as the food is amazing. The seafood risotto is amazing. Great view of the cable car down to the beach. You can hop on the cable car next door

Our guide for the day recommended this place for lunch and have to say it was a very good choice, there were 2 set menus which were good value or A La carte as preferred. We chose the set menu and the mixed fish was delicious served with salad and roasted potatoes and a cold beer and wine overlooking the... More

We want to recommend Bella Blu for their very good food, especially their fish, the fantastic personell including the owner family and especially Nerino! and of course the fantastic view over the coast and the sea! If you are in Taormina you must visit bella blue! Bo and Ann-Kristin from Uppsala, Sweden

Yep, it is touristy - right above the gondola. But, our younger son proclaimed the pizza is the best he has ever had (being a thin crust aficionado) and our pastas and salads were also surprisingly good. And, the view can't be beat. So, if you're in Taormina and want a view and good food without paying a fortune, give... More

I had dinner here (again) Friday 18 July 2014. I have been probably a dozen times since 2010. Good solid family restaurant. I had pasta con le sarde (pasta with sardines, traditional Palermo dish) and by buddy had spaghetti marinara. It is always a hearty meal like home cooking - no bells and whistles. The pizzas served at the next... More

We visited this restaurant twice whilst in Taormina. Both times we had a great table looking over the bay. The cable car runs just below the Terrace. The food was good on both visits. One night I had the set menu risotto, Swordfish and granite both very good (both myself and partner were given the granite even though my partner... More

This place is conveniently located near the cable car. The service was good, we were allowed to choose the table we want, and we had a view of the Ionian Sea! The entrance was full of beautiful flowers. I had smoked salmon which went very well with white wine. My daughter loved the pasta with squid ink. As we were... More

Food was average, but complained about one dish - mixed seafood - which was not mixed and pricey. We did not have a view but some tables did. The atmosphere felt like a school canteen. Family run and wasn't terrible at all, but we did not go back.
