We then went down to the restaurant to have a lovely 3 course meal outside with some excellent local wines (we had chosen the food & wine on a previous visit to... More

Really enjoyed the food and wine at this lovely restaurant with amazing views. Beware, you do need to book, especially in high season. They do many functions, so I would not advise to just drop in.

A gem of a restaurant. From arrival we were made to feel welcome by the friendly and efficient staff. We sat on the terrace on this balmy October evening with the heady scent of jasmine perfuming the air. Our starters of local vegetable terrine were delicious and mains of tiny, plentiful and beautifully cooked lamb cutlets just perfect. Wouldn't hesitate... More

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.
