Great day at the beach

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... read 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!

Had two lunches that were both quite nice. Reasonably priced, nothing gastronomically extraordinary, but fine for a casual beach place. Great house wine, good iced coffee dessert type drinks
