We went to Cafe Bar Turrisi yesterday for lunch. The penis theme of the bar is really fun. And the Drus Nero D'avola wine was great. So was the almond cake. But the pastas barely had any taste. The service quality was rather bad -...More

Went there twice, food's good, although a bit pricey,almond wine's excellent, "special" interiour with a love for detail. BUT: the service is unfriendly and/or unenthusiastic. No smile, no joke, just routine. And, when you're Italian you get to pay first with the bartender behind the...More

Food was nothing special and slighly over priced for what you get, but the views from their balconies are spectacular. Staff are very friendly and polite.

The bar Turrisi is a place of worship located in Castelmola. Founded in 1947 at the hands of the rider Salvatore Turrisi, was born as an inn for foreigners where they were sipping tasty almond wine made ​​with white grapes and infusion of bitter almonds. Structure after the war that has turned into a hotel, here you can enjoy over the almond wine, pizzas, pasta dishes ices and ice cream. Also extends over four elevations with views of the Duomo of Castelmola Gulf of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. He became famous for his sculptures representing the phallic worship and the very free social custom that made Taormina a cultural reference for many artists and not. Many magazines show us how one of the attractions of Sicily, but we like to think that convey a thought of being Sicilian and freedom of expression, in a structure difficult to manage since the 4 levels. Who does not know how to interpret these places far from wanting to be rude, and does not know or does not have the respect of all that, the place to find elsewhere.
