Great Pizza

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. The best restaurants had to be in the heart of Taormina...right? It wasn't until our last night that we discovered this hidden gem, tucked... More

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. We had Sea Bream served with 3 small pieces... More

Having seen a Da Vinci tour bus disgorge passengers into the rear of this restaurant, where 'an inside garden' is advertised, the night before and heard the local musicians playing and singing music outside, I reserved a table for two for a romantic sdinner and music a day or two later.

Great place to learn about Sicilian (and Pantelleria's) gastronomy, wines and hospitality. This is a place to go, experience and spend a few hours eating and drinking enjoying the sea breeze... just a few steps from the cable car from Taormina to the beach.

I have had bad experiences with Tripadvisor, but this time was a good deal. They include 3... More
