Dozens of great meals in Italy but we'll never forget our lunch with the spectacular view, great food, and wonderful service. It's not cheap!

The restaurant has a beautiful ambience, the Sicilian martini at the bar is a top favorite, the food was good, the almond soup was very distinct, service excellent.

This is fine dining in Taormina but it does not feel stuffy. The staff are welcoming and friendly and very attentive. The view overlooking the sea is perfect. It's a wonderful spot for cocktails or for dinner.

This is a luxury dining experience, and having cocktails on the terrace is a wonderful thing to do. The drink prices are high, but the views more than compensate. We dined inside, and the positives are the excellent service and the presentation of the food. I had the black ink risotto with seafood, and it was quite good. My wife... More

Gorgeous spot with red hot lava oozing down the mountain in distance. Sea and town views spectacular. Food was very nice, lively place, international crowd. Style is fancy outdoor bistro continental style, numerous delicious local Sicilian specialties on menu.
