The restaurant is listed in the Michelin Guides. The pasta is so beautifully made is the best of all the restaurants we ate during the trip. Seafood is good. The restaurant offers an excellent view of the bay and beach.

We were in Taormina for our honeymoon in May and we had a very nice time! We ate at Giovanni several times and the food is excellent, I really recommend this restaurant! You can have various kinds of fish and seafood!

Undoubtebly the best experience in Taormina. You feel that the team or family behind loves good food, treats clients with a smile, in a lovely scenic setting overlooking the bay. Don't miss it!
