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.

We were invited a few days ago to a Sicilian wedding in Taormina (lucky us) and so we ended up in the Villa Antonio for a wedding dinner that I can easily describe as lavish, fingerlicking, surprisingly simple but oh so nice. So, here is my humble opinion on this "hidden" treasure : do yourself and your companion(s) a favour... More

Sam and I were searching for a venue to have our wedding ceremony in 2016, we were fairly clear on a number of things 1) Great traditional Sicilian food, 2) stunning venue, 3) excellent service. We visited Villa Antonio as restaurant customers, as apposed to just looking at it in regards to a wedding and it blew our socks off... More

We came here with friends in September and found Villa Antonio to be one of the most beautiful restaurants we have ever eaten at. The staff were very professional and courteous and the setting was magical. We had dinner here and enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Although the food was not the best we tried in Taormina, it is worth... More

The dinner I had last night in Villa Antonio was great. A beautiful athmosphere and great attention for details both in service and meal presentation. Lina, the owner, and all his staff made our evening special. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Taormina.

Me and Concetta decided to spend the most important day of our life at Villa Antonio. Lina and Gabriella helped us framing our celebration in this small paradise on top of the Isolabella. The service was great and prompt to react to a sudden shower which didn't affect the celebration thanks to their professionalism. The dinner was great, food delicious... More
