DESTINATIONS italy taormina Dining Nettuno


Located in the heart of the historical centre of Taormina, Nettuno Restaurant offers an á la carte menu based on local seafood. Seating is available both indoors and on their open courtyard, and you can also join cooking classes, learning directly from the restaurant's chef.


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.
