To say the least this is a interesting place to visit for a nice lunch, the food is good and the house wine is good. The ambiance is really on the unusual side but well done. Castel Mola is worth the visit.

Wie lange dauert es üblicherweise, bis 12 Flaschen persönlich in der Bar bestellter (und bezahlter) Vino di Mandorla nach Deutschland versandt wird? Und wie lange dauert üblicherweise die Beantwortung von e-Mails? How long does it usually take to ship 12 bottles personally at the bar ordered (and paid) Vino di Mandorla to Germany? And how long does it usually take to answer e-mails?

Description
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.
