This is a fantastic place with the best Linguine alla Coze y Vongole (clams & muscles) around. Fresh ingredients, prepared simply but flavourfully, in a perfect setting right on the beach with crystal clear blue waters. We kept coming back everyday for lunch it was so good. Only problem was deciding between the Linguine alla Vongole and the Bruschetta Pizza... More

Beautiful spot, great views and very relaxing. The first time we visited Lido La Pigna we just had morning coffee. The second time we visited for lunch we ate pizza and salad, both delicous.

This is a great spot for yummy Italian food. This is a good option if you are staying at Villa Sant' Andrea next door. You won't be disappointed with the food.

We went for lunch to this unpretentious beach side restaurant next to our hotel and enjoyed some really fresh prawns, the best that we had in and around Taormina.

After a very warm day exploring the Roman Odeon, what better way to unwind, than to relax by the sea!! Taking the cable car down to the seafront we found Lido La Pigna. The restaurant overlooks the beach from a terrace, and given the location, prices for the drinks and food was very reasonable. The service was efficient, and just... More

This is a beautiful bay and this is a professional place to rent sun loungers for the day. We went in October so it was only 8 euros. It was a peaceful spot and the staff seemed helpful. We ordered drinks and lunch which was good food - the paninis were delicious and not very expensive at all. And all... More

Lido La Pigna is situated 50 metres from the Mazzaro - Taormina cable car. It is a restaurant, pizzeria and snack bar that provides sun beds, parasols and showers for the adjacent beach. Given its beachside location the prices were very reasonable and compared favourably with the next bay along, the more commercialised Isla Bella. Lido La Pigna is a... More

A busy beachfront location...this is a very informal, unpretentious restaurant... but a really excellent spot for relaxing over a lunchtime pasta or simple snack with a glass of wine...or two...What makes this place special is the quality of the food, the buzzy atmosphere & the excellent friendly service...& of course the beautiful beach view all around. We loved it!
