Ok let’s get past the giggling part. This place is full of penises! Huge wooden ones on tables, seats have them on arm rests, taps resemble them and even the coffee machine dispenses through one! I’ve visited here several times over the years and enjoyed...More

The place is super picturesque and funny (with a lot of phallic motives...) However I believe Torrisi is trying to serve too many customers without having the capacity to do that. We waited over 1 hour having ordered just simple drinks (beer and wine) and...More

This place is a curiosity. Almost everything is penis shape. You come here solely for drinks and aperitifs. You do not come here to eat. Top floor is a roof top view of the bay of Taormina with a view of Mount Etna. Worth a...More

We sat out on the balcony which gave a nice view over the square and valley below. However, that was about the nicest part of the evening. Two of us were served okay food (pizza and pistachio pasta with ham) but one of our group...More

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.
