We've been eating exclusively at TA's recommended restaurants during our extended stay in Taormina. This lovely tavern rivaled all the others! We caught the bus to Castemola and this restaurant is pretty much at the end of the road. As the menu photos at the entry appeared sumptuous, and we didn't want to walk back, we tried it.
So glad we did!
The food appeared exactly as depicted on the photos. We had a front row seat of Mt. Etna on a clear day. The waiter spoke English well and tolerated our poor Italian graciously. The ambiance was relaxed with soft music in the background.
Our fare: we shared the mixed seafood appetizer and I had the spaghetti with mixed seafood. My wife had the swordfish.That, mixed with 66cl of Messina, made for a perfect and leisurely lunch.
To be honest, my expectations were not high but my final impression certainly was. On a hot afternoon, I was hesitant to take on Castelmola but I am so glad we did.
