The place looked very quiet and nice from the little alley we walked down towards the church. The inside was "packed" with old antiques and erotic sculptures/furniture. A little embarrassing in the beginning for two teenage girls and mom, but the atmosphere in total made us forget about it. Very good sandwiches and good service.Walked out the door with the... More

We popped in just to have a view from the terrase,which was awsome! A fantastic view to mount Etna and to the bay. We ended up having a lunch there. The food was good, the biggest toast we have ever seen. The place is realky funny and definitely worth a look! The staff is a bit slow but very friendly... More

After 10 days in Italy, numerous dining outs, we encountered the worst service ever. The waiters carried palm devices to enter ones order, but after three different staff and 90 minutes, we actually received our food and second cocktail. The food was actually very good but definitely not worth the nearly comical clueless staff. I actually thought we were on... More

We visited Bar Turrisi expecting something funny and it was! A great laugh. The service was terrible though. Yes it was a busy evening in July but surely just one maybe two staff covering 3 or 4 floors is not enough! We waited ages for a drink which tasted bland (cocktail) and not worth the money paid. Overall worth a... More

Located in a great place, sitting on the terrace overlooking the bay and mount Etna is an astonishing expirience! Mandorla wine is a must have here, we were so delighted by the taste of ot that we bought a bottle to take it home and enjoy it for a couple of times more. The staff is very kind and the... More

Wow was I surprised! Bar full of happy fallic symbols, nice seating places on the balcony on three(or four...?) levels, a menu with a lot to choose from, inexpensive, nice wines. We actually thought of arriving here for our "last meal of the vacation" dinner, but unfortunately Castelmola was a little bit too far from our accomodation. We "got lost"... More

This restaurant is well known for its unique decor, and this was the reason for our visit. In actual fact, however, we expected it to be more kitschy and were pleasantly surprised. Service was good but not great. Sometimes it was a bit of a challenge getting the waiters' attention. I don't blame them though, as I'm sure it's difficult... More

There aren't many bar options in Castelmola and this is probably the best. The best things about it are the quirky layout and the views. Head up the narrow staircase to the upper levels and bag a seat on one of the balconies if possible. From there you can take in the view of the square and out to the... More
