We stayed at a hotel nearby that had really good views, so for us, the view was similar and not as special as it probably is for others. And that was by far the highlight. We were sort of shunted off to the side to...More

The views are stunning but unfortunately everything else is just plain average. Unattentive service, average food and menu with a big variance in price depending what you order. A romantic setting but I would prefer listening to authentic Italian music rather than cheesy 80's love...More

Al Saraceno is a short drive up out of Taormina, but well worth the journey. The view is absolutely stunning in the evening. We had salads and pizzas and thought the food was delicious. The prices were reasonable and the wines were very good also...More

It is not all that expensive - I was actually surprised. The pizzas are the same price as the pizzas you pay for in the city centre. You can have very good Sicilian wine and pay only 20-30 Euro a bottle. Don't hesitate to... More
