The beach front restaurant has spectacular views of the surrounding areas and specialties are the traditional Sicilian dishes. The fish and spaghetti are delicious, the pizza is the best in town.The hospitality is amazing and even if you try only a sandwich or a cocktail - it will be one of the best memories of your time here in Sicily.

Cinzia, federico, Simon, and the most wonderful Angela. They make the best cappuccino ever with a great view of the sea and environment. :)

Mazarro beach and Lido La Plagna is at the bottom of Taormino cable car and in my view prettier than the better known Isola Bella. There are sun beds to rent (€7.50 per bed per day) and the cafe / restaurant for food drinks. We enjoyed a lovely Aperol Spritz from the terrace at the end of the day watching... More

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.
