This is a truly exceptional restaurant in all respects! We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived until we left. The service was immaculate and friendly. The location is "magical" with lovely sea views from the terrace. The food was beautifully prepared and presented. MY wife who is a "Creme Brulee'a holic" said it was the best she... More

I found myself alone on my first night in Taormina as my friends flights had been delayed. I was staying close to Villa Antonio and during a jet lagged walk I stumnled across the seaside treasure. I went in to simply enquire about their menu as it was a close option for my first night alone. I was blown away... More

As a wedding & event planner i have tried several restaurants in Taormina before recommending them to our clients. Villa Antoinio is excellent and exceeds expectations. Lina, the owner of this family-run restaurant is always present and Toto's attention to detail is remarkable. The views from the restaurant are as amazing as the dining experience. Well Done!

My mum and I loved our food both nights. I had steak tartare for the first time and it was delicious. The service was exceptional, by far the best we experienced in Taormina. I highly recommend Villa Antonio.
