Nice View!

We were here in August 2015. We tried only the "tourist menu" because we were in group excursion. It was ok, and the service was quick enough

Staff is one of the nicest we have come across in our six week travels. The menu was varied and something interesting for everyone. We had spaghetti with red clams sauce, pasta with shrimp, pasta with bolognese sauce. all delicious. Complimentary limoncello was offered as well as lemon granite. We ate there twice it was so delicious. View were unbeatable.

Every time I have lunch or dinner here it's always a pleasure experience. Fresh fish, pizza or any typical Italian meal...all of that with a beautiful sightseeing.

The restaurant is on Via Pirandello, on the way to the bus station near the upper cable car station. it has an unassuming entrance, however it has huge terraces overlooking the sea, commanding fantastic views. The service is very welcoming and professional and the waiting staff go out of their way to be of help. The food portions are large... More

Visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Taormina. Good sized portions at good prices. Staff friendly and attentive, we got a warm welcome at each visit. Nerido was very friendly and looked after us well. The lobster linguine and spaghetti vongole were both fabulous. Great views on the terrace. The strawberry cake was wonderful. Great value just next... More

Located on the outskirts of Taormina next to the cable car upper station, the restaurant has little immediate direct competition. There is a dining area offering pleasing panoramic views, though purists might quibble about the cable car in the vista. The menu is broadly similar to most restaurants throughout the town. We ate there at some point practically every day... More

We dined here 3 times after being here for our welcome meeting. The staff were attentive and food choices very good. Great views of cable car and nice treat to get a small granite when leaving after our meal.
