It's right on the road but the pizza was MUCH better than regular pizza from a roadhouse joint. Excellent wine selection. Great pizza, did I say that already?

My husband and I were staying in a lovely hotel in the mazzaro area of Taormina, taking the cable car up to the main area each evening for dinner overlooking panoramic views of the Ionian Sea.

Good tasting Sea Bream, outdoor seating in front and rear. Beware biting insects in rear outside seating area. This resataurant is located on the via nazionale road at the bottom of the funivia near the beach. The service is very good, food very well cooked and beautifully presented, but quite expensive.

Stunning, simple Sicilian food. A good wine list, helpful and efficient waiters and great desert- what more could you need?! I recommend the bottarga- best I've had in sicily.
