Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay.

Great beach, fantastic lifeguards, good food - really well run

We used the beach club for a week in August. Special mention to Gregorio - who looked after us so well - nothing too much trouble. Breakfast is basic, coffee really good. Lunch is great with good daily specials - reasonable price. Beach busy and fun pedalos, paddle board, etc, available to hire... read more

Spent two days here in a week staying in Taormina. Unfortunately we had spent the previous week in Tropea in Calabria and Taormina was at least half as expensive again. That is not to say that it was expensive per se in fact had we not been to Tropea I would probably have said it was reasonable. Sunbeds in Tropea... More

Lido La Pigna is such a fantastic place... We had our wedding reception there last year and returned this year for our 1st anniversary... Both visits we were blown away by the exceptionally friendly staff, fabulous food and breathtaking views. Thomas remembered us from our wedding last year and reserved the same table for us. We'll definitely be coming back.

Great place to spend a day by the beach. The staff were really friendly, and serve food and drink by your sunbed if you can't summon the energy to go to the bar. The restaurant serves a great selection of panninis/toasts, pizzas and sea food and there's a good view of the bay from the upstairs. There is also a... More

It's on the beach, or rather overlooks the beach. It's casual. Read: Very unfancy. It closes just before dinner (6 or 7pm.) It's hard to find, down off the street. But what a sleeper. The only reason I came here was thanks to other TA reviewers. To think I could have come to Taormina and missed this place. Everything is... More

Lido La Pigna is, for all practical purposes, scenic Taormina's beachfront. The staff is the friendliest and funniest, the food is wonderful and even the house wine is great :-) Being a regular here since 2010 I can confirm it's just getting better & better. Try the pizza here, or even better - the involtini di pesce spade alla griglia.

I enjoyed a fantastic lunch here alongside a bay in Mazzaro. The staff was attentive and the caprese, pasta, seafood crudo and aperol spritz hit the spot.

We went here for a late lunch of pizza shortly after arriving in Taormina and were highly impressed. Lido has a great location right on the beach and prices reasonable. We both got pizza so not sure how the other food is. House wine was delightful as well!
