Stopped for refreshments after walking to Monte Venere and back. Simple toasted sandwiches, refreshing beer and pleasant wine were very welcome while taking in the wonderful views.

we visited this cafe whilst in Castelmola and found it to be charming, the people were great and very pleasant and the views from the restaurant are wonderful. The food was good but would recommend even if you just wanted to stop and have a drink and take in the scenery

We were on a cruise that made a one day stop in Catania and we hired a tour company to take us to Castelmola and Taormina. Our guide recommended that we try the granita, which is a local speciality in Sicily. We tried the pistachio and lemon and they were both delicious. Nothing like anything I had before - very...

Caffe San Giorgio is the first cafe bar you come across in Castelmola when you get off the bus travelling up from Taormina.

Keeping in mind it's prime position and... More

We had bruschetta and lasagne here. Both were OK. Unfortunately, we couldn't finish our lasagne quietly because of the many whasps. So we had to sit inside but there was no atmosphere at all and furniture was very old and crooked. Waiters were very friendly!!

Our preferred lunch spot closed lunch early, so we walked back up to San Giorgio. It was fine. The pizza was quite enjoyable. The view is great. The service was, well, adequate.
