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.

We visited this restaurant 3 times while staying in Taormina. The food is good and the staff are so welcoming. The views are amazing over the bay. The cable car runs right by the restaurant. The food was good, some lovely fish dishes and they do deals on pizzas and drinks so ideal if you've got children with you.

authentic Sicilian cuisine, reasonable prices, with spectacular view of the sea from high up in Taormina. The restaurant is conveniently located at the top of the funivia in Taormina.

Right next to the top station of the Funiva, this big restaurant has plenty of space, great views and lovely food. Very well cooked local fish and pasta.

Given that this restaurant is away from the main Casa Umberto, my wife and I thought this would not be a tourist trap but we were so wrong! The service was good, friendly staff. But the food was a proper letdown for the Sicilian cuisine. This was my worst meal in Sicily trip, in any town! The location was good... More

The food and service here was ok, but surely much better is available elsewhere in Taormina. During our meal many, many people from tour groups arrived and it was rather like eating in a madhouse - not a pleasant experience.
