We had a light lunch. The bruschetta pomodoro and the Antipasti Rustica were especially good. The view is one of the best in the village. The other diners had meals going and they were all enjoying what they had ordered.

In the tiny mountain top town just up the road from Taormina is a true gem Castelmola. La Taverna Dell Etna is a must if you visit this tiny village. The menu is a treasure chest of different pizza styles. Macaroni with a multitude of "toppings", seafood, meat and chicken. A bad choice can not be made. The house wine... More

We had a great experience on both our visits to this restaurant. We found this place using Tripadvisor and found it to be just as good the great reviews we had read. The place had superb food, service and views. Antonio was such a wonderful host and recommended some lovely options. His team was always wanting to please. All the... More

We visited Castelmola and wanted somewhere we could enjoy the view. We stumbled upon La Taverna Dell Etna and got a table on their veranda. Amazing! Views in all directions. The staff were very friendly and made us welcome. A bottle of prosecco and lovely food with no pressure to move on quickly, delightful. Would not hesitate to return if... More

Our first trip to Castelmola & having enjoyed the wonderful sights of this spectacular hilltop village, we chose this modest restaurant for a relaxed dinner, sitting on the terrace to enjoy the amazing views all round. The cooking was of an excellent standard - both the pasta & seafood enjoyed were beautifully cooked. The service was attentive throughout & the... More

We had a fabulous meal here during our stay in Castelmola. Highly recommend it. Attentive service and the pasta and seafood was outstanding! Good wine list. Unpretentious, friendly, old fashioned good service with a wonderful terrace with views of Etna. Not to be missed!

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
