My husband and I had dinner here one night recently. It was a very enjoyable experience: the food was very tasty and creative (I had the lamb and he had the seafood stew). The maitre d' was great! He was very friendly and knowledgeable. The desserts were delicious as well.

The property was perfect and located in a romantic location with astonishing views. The entire staff was focused on the guest having an excellent experience and memorable food. Try the Peach soup.. truly one of a kind and a "bucket list quality". It is a 2-3 hour experience of great fine food , service and fun. Everyone in our group... More

This beautiful restaurant has a wonderful outdoor dining area looking out over Isola Bella. It's easy to see why it's a superb location for weddings and parties. Toto is a wonderfully warm host testament to his fine dining career in London and further afield. The whole staff were friendly and attentive throughout the evening. I ate a variety of delicious...

My husband made reservations based on the reviews and rating on Trip Advisor. We had a wonderful evening. Villa Antonia was accommodating, we had to move our reservation twice and it was not a problem for them. We arrived on a beautiful night and had a perfect view of the city lights and the water. The wait staff were very... More

This a great restaurant in what looks like a historic castle setting, right across from the hotel Capotaormina. We had a fantastic dinner. Not cheap by any measure but worth it. The dishes are very creative and well presented. Highly recommended for celebrations or any other occasion.

We ate here twice during our week in Sicily and both times were superb. Lovely, attentive staff and amazing food. Slightly more expensive than your ordinary restaurant but well worth it.

Quite easily one of the best evenings I have had at dinner. The food was spectacular, and even that seems like an understatement. We had pasta stuffed with seafood, vegetarian lasagna and baked fish. The views from the restaurant over the bay are fantastic and the staff were friendly, professional and very funny. Thank you from "the Mongolians".

Utterly disappointing after reading so many good reviews here. The food was so-so. Bland in some of them. The grouper fish dish wasn't cooked in the inside. I hope I don't get sick. The inside restaurant was completely empty and the maitre'd made us feel we r so lucky to get a table without reservation. Truth was it was not... More
