Great restaurant rather casual than fancy, reasonably priced, worth the trip from Taormina. I am usually afraid when I see the photos in the menu and also the menu which has more than 2 pages. This time it was pleasant surprise. It was cloudy so we could not see Etna but we were not sorry at all to make this... More

This restaurant is not to be missed when visiting Castelmola. I visited the restaurant with my wife and my daughter on two separate evenings for dinner. On both occasions, food was excellent and the staff very cordial and efficient. The restaurant has an outside terrace with beautiful mount etna views. Cost is very fair and reasonable for the quality of... More

We ate here on two evenings during a 5 day stay in the area. On both occasions all of the food we had was excellent - pasta, meat, fish and desserts - especially the canoli. A good selection of Sicilian wines was available including some from the Castelmola area too. Service was attentive without being over intrusive. Not the cheapest... More

Food and service were superb. Pasta was freshly prepared, the ripest tomato and eggplant. Highly recommend, staff was friendly, attentive, try and sit on the terrace with a panoramic view of Mt Etna. Will definitely return for more meals

The Taxi driver who brought me up to Castelmola recomended me La taverna del Etna I was very satisfied about the relax service, the view and principally the view i like the different stuffing of the Ravioli and they suggested to make a mix so did not have to choose :-) Free Wifi available

Went here three times - delicious food and good service each time. Book a table in advance and ask for one with a view of Etna. Enjoy!

What a wonderful place! Wonderful food with lots of seafood. The view of Etna sitting on top of Castelmola is just perfect. And we got the best treatment! Wish we could back more often. But at least we've got the wonderful memories (pictures).

My family and I were driving around and stumbled on La Taverna dell' Etna by accident. The staff had a smile although they were very busy. We were seated promptly and at the table with a view although we spent more time looking at our plates once the food was served. We loved the 9 plate seafood appetizer for two... More

We were a group of 4 and sat on the balcony for dinner. Was windy and cold but they gave us fleece blanket type things to wear which were perfect. The wait staff were professional, there was one young waiter there who was really friendly. We had starters and mains, a mix of bruschetta, eggplant antipasti, salad and pasta. The... More
