A classic gem

A fab view. Classic simple fare. Excellent friendly service. It was our first meal in Taomina and could not have been a better choice.

It was our last night and wedding anniversary. I had booked following great TA reviews and its setting is stunning overlooking Isola Bella. But for some reason, this night we were kept waiting nearly an hour for our starters and when food did finally arrive it was just average.

We came here after a long day of travel, looking for a nice place and great food. We weren't disappointed. We got one of the best tables overlooking the bay, truly magnificent views! The staff was very friendly, had great recommendations and looked after us all night. Amazing food, service and views. Worth visiting if you're nearby!

I found this little place at the recommendation of other Trip Advisors, and was not disappointed! I recognized the charming villa based on photos while we were out on a boat in the sea, and grew excited to note it was perched on a cliff, overlooking Isola Bella, Taormina's most iconic island. Our taxi had dropped us off at the... More

This was our 2nd visit and it certainly won't be the last. On our trip to Taormina, Villa Antonio was the first place we booked for Saturday evening and we enjoyed every single plate. The venue, waiters and host are superb. the food is exquisite and the general feel of this restaurant is perfect for a romantic night out
