“If ever in Castelmola or Taormina (Sicily) you must visit!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic place to visit. Most staff can speak English! Despite what people have said. About this place it is not too confronting therefore children can be brought in, with slight caution of course. The staff are friendly, and do everything to cater to your needs. My recommendation would be to go in July/august and experience this bar during the day and night because the atmosphere Is completely Different. If ever in Castelmola or Taormina this is the place to go

“So many Penis's!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Great fun place, friendly staff, lots to look at but food was pricey for what you got! Well worth a visit though and stunning views from the bar/restaurant.

“The best almond liquor in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

It's a very out of the ordinary bar, the interior must have a 18+ sign at the entrance, but it is not grose. It's a must see attraction in the Taormina, especially for the terrace view from were you can see the Etna and the sea.

“The beautiful pub with a twist!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Castelmola is a tiny village on a mountain peak. Not much to see. Bar Turrisi, close to the Duomo is a beautiful building on three floors each offering an improvement on the vertiginous views of the one before. Food is of OK quality and inexpensive.
The attraction here is the decor! Without spoiling the surprise...I would say don't take the little kiddies there! Otherwise the aura is of an eclectic old-world charm.
Food is affordable, drinks are on the cheap side, lots of photo subjects!

“Interesting theme to the place and the almond wine is delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

It had a great view of the sea, we got tired of waiting for a bus to take us back down to Taormina so we walked, better walking down than up is all I can say!
