Super place a short drive from Taormina. Wonderful building and as always in these parts, stunning views. Proximity to the road does not spoil the ambience. Friendly and informative service- an interesting menu and some excellent food and wine.

We had a wonderful dinner with outstanding food (meat and seafood) and an exceptional view of Isola Bella. The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. This location is perfect for romantic dinners, family reunions or any other special occasion.

Lovely place to eat, the views are amazing and the food is gorgeous. I had the beef and it was so good. It's expensive though.

I've eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants throughout Europe, and the Ristorante Villa Antonio ranks right up there with the best. For example, I'd compare it very favourably with Gordon Ramsay's restaurant Maze in Central London. My meal consisted of a steak tartare as the antipasti followed by a tuna steak secondi piatti, and both were excellent. The steak tartare... More

Without doubt the best service of any restaurant we have visited and definitely worth coming out of the town for the view and the food. The whole meal was delicious, especially the starters. Lovely touches throughout the whole meal including lollipops and petit fours to finish but the friendliness of the staff made the evening.

Amazing night in the best surrounding with an attentive friendly service. Best service we had encountered during our trip. Food was delicious and the tasters were a nice surprise. Even given a gift at the end of the night, highly recommend! Thank you to all the staff!

Beautiful location overlooking Isola Bella. We were given their best table, despite running half an hour late after taking a wrong turn, and a beautiful homemade cake for my husband's birthday. None of this was requested. They did this kind gesture off their own back. Wonderful, warm team who truly made it a very special night. Thank you!
