Ristorante Taormina

This restaurant lets you enjoy either its pasta with seafood dishes or its pizzas while sitting under their terrace, letting you enjoy a view of the main road, Corso Umberto. They also have many options for traditional desserts, from the Sicilian cannoli, pastries with ricotta filling, to tiramisu.


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.
