We had a wonderful beach experience during our 8 days at the beach of Lido la Pigna! The team was very helpful and friendly. The beach is super nice, even though sometimes the waves are a bit wild - we thought it suited the sicilian temperament nicely. Special thanks to Thomas, Simone and Luigi! Grazie e a la prossima volta!

I highly recommend this place for a beach day in Taormina when you are tired of the crowds and outrageous prices at Isola Bella! The staff is very friendly, and they provide a lot of wonderful services, such as transportation to and from your hotel and beachside food and drink orders (delivered right to your lounge chair!). It is a... More

One of the best meals I had while I was in Sicily and we went to all the fancy spots but this was really one of the best, especially for lunch. Great view of the ocean and the people who work there are all so friendly as it is a family run restaurant. One of the best spaghetti vongole's I've... More

We visited Taormina, and this restaurant, last summer about the same time. The views from the terrace haven't changed, but the food has a bit - for the worse unfortunately. The swordfish this year was being served frozen or 'surgelato'. I appreciated the heads up, but I sure would have been upset to pay $15 or $20 for frozen fish.... More

We spent a few wonderful days here on their sun loungers on the pebble beach. It's a beautiful spot, in a little corner with clear blue waters. Everything made all the more enjoyable by the lovely team at La Pigna, who clearly care about their customers. The food was very good, watch out for their lasagna which occasionally comes out...

The beach is fantastic and great value. We went a few times during our stay in Taormina. It is E10 for a sun lounger and umbrella. It is worth asking your hotel as if they have a deal with La Pigna, they will come and pick you up in the minibus (although the cable car down from Taormina is good... More

We finished our day here before heading back to Messina for our cruise ship. We had lunch and went for a swim. They have sowers and a changing room. We just had pizza and drinks for lunch and it was typical Napoli style. Very tasty. Friendly staff. We made a reservation with them to save us four beach chairs and... More

We were staying at the hotel next door, but as it was the world cup and my husband is football daft, he always seeks out the places that are showing the matches the day we arrive. This place was a real find. Run by three brothers and a sister, the emphasis is on friendly welcoming Sicilian hospitality. The food and... More

Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay. Don't miss the "Lido La Pigna Experience"... a deep dive in the Sicilian Heritage.
