the food and service here are out of this world!so much so we are having our wedding reception here...parmigianna is the best in taormina, the pizza here is fab but it is fair to say that their seafood is their speciality!try anything that the house recommends and you wont be disappointed!

This is on the hill by the Madonna della Rocca overlooking Taormina. Make the effort to get up there - the view is amazing and if you walk a little way up towards the church you can see over to Italy as well. We went the day after they opened and so they had no gluten free bread (which we hadn't expected) but the manager got someone to bring some up from the town. Amazing level of service. Food was Italian/International - one of the more expensive meals of the holiday but worth it

Al Sareceno is located about midway between Taormina and Castelmola and occupies a lovely position with stunning panoramic views of Etna and the surroundings. We ate here on 3 occassions for dinner, and each time the food and service were excellent. We sampled the fillet steak with porcini mushrooms, swordfish, a couple of pasta dishes, lamb cutlets and couldnt fault any of the food we were served. The tiramisu was gorgeous, too. They also do pizza, however we didnt try them although they too looked great. Highly recommended, and well worth the walk or drive or bus ride from Taormina. We were staying very close by at the Villa Virginia apartments, which were also excellent, so it was just a short stroll across to the Saraceno for us.

This restaurant sits above Taormina with a superb view of Etna, we went two nights while staying at a near by hotel and the food is extremely good and the staff very friendly and helpful.

We chose this restaurant with some friends to celebrate my birthday in Taormina.
That was the best choice ever! Not only the food was amazing and well presented, the staff and the owner were extremely courteous. The restaurant is in a fantastic location, up hill and with a breathtaking view.... so .... a fantastic birthday lunch in an amazing spot!
Will recommend to everyone!
