Managed to get in on a Saturday without booking. Had a nice table inside but would have loved one of the ones on the front. As we sat there a beautiful golden moon rose outside which just added to the experience. Having had the best...More

By chance while strolling in Taormina we entered this restaurant. We opted to eat a pizza in the below pizzeria. What a view..... The service was impeccable and the pizza to die for. I will for sure go again

Recommended to book a table as it was fully booked. Great service, great food, and beautiful view. From the outside it does seem a nice restaurant but once you enter and you go to the back of the building overlooking Taormina valley, it's very nice....More

We ate at Granduca on our first night in Taormina after hearing of its great views. The entrance feels very classy as you make your way downstairs from the Corso Umberto passed designer shops. We were then greeted by a surly maître d', unsual for...More

Nice food great view shame about the service. So much choice in the menu, and everything looked good, pasta was amazing. The service let the place down things taken from table without asking if we had finished when we haven't. If you want good quality...More

Has the potential to be excellent but falls short. Fabulous view. Have to agree that the de-constructed prawn cocktail does not work. The veal was disappointing but the fillet steak excellent. Size of muscles disappointly small. Wine list extensive but head waiter selected two good,...More

I found this place a little odd, granted the views are beautiful but it's a pity they decided not to open up the windows until after we had finished our meal which really spoiled the whole experience. The deconstructed prawn cocktail doesn't work. I don't...More

A magnificent villa of the 15th century splendidly restored, is the ideal setting of the restaurant-pizzeria "Granduca". Reception rooms, terraces and the garden all have a view of the sea and the greek theater, which give your meeting and receptions distinction. Cucine is typical from Sicily. It's a pleasure to eat, not only for the quality meals, but also for the beauty of the place.
