With a terrace that overlooks their vineyards and the Ionian Sea, as well as a patio and garden available during summertime, Murgo Winery offers ample choice for seating. Their fixed-price menu features Sicilian appetizers, two first courses, a mixed grill and a dessert to finish off. You can also book a wine tasting tour, where you'll be able to enjoy specials such as the Lapilli Bianco and Etna Rosso.
The essence of the Sicilian cuisine lies in dishes that belong to a tradition dated hundreds of years ago, resulting from the mixture of different cultures that have lived in this town starting from its first Greek settlements. Taormina boasts some of the most well-renowned eateries of the Mediterranean Island. The tender meat of the swordfish fished locally is served with vegetables or plain as a "secondo piatto" (the second course) always preceded by a "primo piatto" (the first course, usually pasta, risotto or soup) and an antipasto (the appetiser). To finish off the meal you can order a dessert rigorously accompanied by almond wine, a peculiarity of Taormina's tradition.
