This place was amazing. It was one of our favorites. When we return to Sicily we WILL return to this restaurant. I recommend getting their a little early to get choice seating as the view is beyond reproach. If you are looking for great food, fair price, with an amazing view - look no further, you found it

This restaurant is rated by the guide Top 10 Sicily as one of the top 10 restaurant of Northeast Sicily. It has not disappointed me! As several other reviewers have indicated, the view from this restaurant is splendid, to say the least. But I was truly "wowed" by the "Taormina pizza" I was served. It was different from any pizza... More

A hidden gem in Taormina. Both the food and service is fantastic as well as the setting. We ate in both the restaurant and pizzeria. The restaurants both overlook the bay with beautiful views

This restaurant is amazing because of its panoramic view of the coast. Its breathtaking. The food was good and the service was fine. But really you cant beat the view. There are several restaurants with a similar view, and this one is great because the terrace is so big. Great experience here!

A local Shop keeper at Sugar & Spice di Diane, suggested this place for lunch. Thanks Diane! Everything we experienced was wonderful. We had excellent Antipasti followed by delicious pizza. Since the restaurant is right on Corso Umberto, of course, there will be many tourists. It did not detract from a lovely experience and one of the best views in... More

We enjoyed a nice pasta dish and a parmigiana di melanzane in this restaurant as we were not in the mood to have the seafood, for which, normally, this restaurant is very well reputated.

After being seated, we had to ask to get a menu, after not having received one and waiting for 20 minutes, the waiters and waitresses seemed to have forgotten about us as they had five other tables with louder guests. My husband ordered pizza, I ordered a mix plate of "frutti di mare" and a tagliatelle bolognese for our three... More

Fantastic view from the terrace! On arrival the staff were very polite helpful in explaining the dishes and even brought the fish to show us. The meal was good quality and we felt that it was definitely worth it.

Description
A magnificent villa of the 15th century splendidly restored, is the ideal setting of the restaurant-pizzeria "Granduca". Reception rooms, terraces and the garden all have a view of the sea and the greek theater, which give your meeting and receptions distinction. Cucine is typical from Sicily. It's a pleasure to eat, not only for the quality meals, but also for the beauty of the place.
