The best place to have a dinner with Etna view at the dusk. Prices are a little bit higher but kitchen has a lot of thing to offer. Again - it's about view point which is the best in Taormina

A nice small restaurant with a beautiful view of the Etna volcano and Taormina. The typical Sicilian food was great and the wine excellent. The service was friendly and efficient

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
