It was the best experience ever. Though it is expensive, I highly recommend it. It was my wife's birthday. She just loved and that makes me happy

We selected this restaurant for our wedding dinner and it was a bull's eye. The food was extremely tasty and exquisite. The service is very polite and descreet. The wedding cake was nicely decorated and looked enorm. All the guests had a unonimous wow-impression of the place. The interior of the restaurant is simple and very elegant. Surprisingly enough the background music was exactly what my wife likes. So, perefect wedding dinner after a perfect veniue. Bravo Villa Antonio!

We decided to visit the top 1 rated restaurant in Taormina , according to Trip Advisor and it was a really nice evening. First of all, the restaurant is located in a really nice place, that fuilfill our imaginary about Sicily : an old villa built in stone, with a really preserved decoration. Go there to have a drink in the terrazza during the evening, where the light makes the building even more special. The second peak was the service , really good, polite, concerned about the minimum details. It was also a pleasure to see the honor and her family having dinner two tables beside ours. Makes the difference when the owner is always present. The food, was delicious , specially the starter (cocous) , desert and and “a surprise “ just before the desert ( first time that I proved a delicious jelly made of anis. At the end, my wife also get a gift from the owner. A really nice experience for romantic evening.

Wow what a place we have just returned from having our very special wedding reception here, not one of our 40 guests had any reason to complain, the food was superb and on time as we were concerned having attended other weddings ourselves that there would be long delays between tables and courses being served, no such problem here all in our opinion was perfect and i can assure anyone reading this if anyone was going to complain about a restaurant it would be me as i do not tolerate expensive badly cooked food lightly, the chefs at this venue have been trained by the owner Lina's husband Massimo Mantarro chef at the San Dominica Hotel in Taormina and winner of the Gambero Rosso award 2011 all in all we had a wonderful experience and for the canapes champagne followed by four courses plus dessert buffet half a bottle of wine each, 50 beers and the most magnifcent wedding cake ever for 130 euros a head I say that's fantastic value for money, we can't wait to revisit as soon as we can, thankyou Lina and all the staff at Villa Antonio

We decided to hold our wedding reception at Villa Antonio. As you can imagine we were slightly apprehensive as we had not seen the restaurant or sampled the food before we flew out to Sicily. We met with Lina (the owner) a few days before the wedding to go through the menu and other details and instantly knew we were in good hands.

From the moment we arrived at restaurant to the time we departed we were made to feel like we were the only group in the restaurant. The service was impeccable, the waiters were very professional and operated like Swiss clockwork. We were never left waiting for more food or drink.

The food itself was amazing, every single guest had a favourite dish (the scabbard with onions got the most votes). The quality and freshness of ingredients was superb, the wines were absolutely perfect and complimented every course. They had made us a traditional Sicilian wedding cake which was out of this world. We just wish we had stomach's big enough to eat it all.

The restaurant itself is located on a hill overlooking one of the best views in Sicily (Isola Bella). Lina had reserved one of the terraces for our small party which meant we were not disturbed by the other group dining at the restaurant. The fact that there was a group of 100+ guests also dinning at the restaurant was testament to the professionality of the owner and the staff.

If you are eating for 2 or 200 this resteraunt is a must whilst you are in Sicily.
