Great fresh fish

The tables at the restaurant have a fantastic view over the bay and mountains on the north side of Taormina. We had a party of 14 and were seated without a reservation and with the view. The service was prompt, courteous and helpful. We ordered a variety of items: steak, pasta and fish. We all... read more

We stopped here on our private touring of Catania and Taormina and were delighted that this was the guide's choice. They had a special fixe prixe menu with wonderful local choices. Very reasonable. Staff was very accommodating!

In a line - don't bother. We decided that Bella Blu was the restaurant to go to having called around Taormina in search of Gluten Free pizza. We arrived with good hopes following a phone call, but it was all downhill from there. The bland, characterless decor was reminiscent of childhood caravans, the "fantastic view" scarred with a cable car... More

Located just steps away from the cable car station, this restaurant also has a small outdoor terrace / balcony ( with 6 or 7 tables ) with a lovely view of the coast north of Taormina. The service was great and the meal even better - shrimp cocktail, spaghetti carbonara, chicken diablo, roasted vegetables and drinks - only 47 euros.... More

Popped here as close to our hotel and we were late back from a trip not expecting much, great views, bright lighting looks a bit canteen like. The food was very good, nothing was too much trouble the waiters were so friendly & helpful, giving us info on the area etc. We returned for a second night as pleasantly surprised.... More

We came here as close to our hotel and the sign said pizzeria. The view was 5 star but nothing else was. Service was awful, wrong wine given to us initially and then some spilt on my dress by waiter. No bread arrived for ages. No wine glasses until after wine. At the end we were waiting for bill, and... More

The décor wasn't great, but it had a great view. The waiter was very personable. The food came out quickly and was tasty. They even gave our kids a small granite taste on the way out and one for us as well with a bit of alcohol in it :)

Very good service, with a smile, and excellent food. We had a very nice table overlooking the beach, whilst watching the cable cars going up and down. We had very limited time and we could not use these cable cars though the scene down there was very tempting, not to say mandatory. We had fish, sea bass, nicely cooked and... More

Good value overall. Really friendly staff. At first glance interior looks a bit bland but in the evening the restaurant overlooks the sea and has fantastic views. Get a table on the balcony. Thomsons tours use it for their meetings otherwise we might have ignored it.
