Reviewed 5 October 2016

This beautiful restaurant has a wonderful outdoor dining area looking out over Isola Bella. It's easy to see why it's a superb location for weddings and parties. Toto is a wonderfully warm host testament to his fine dining career in London and further afield. The whole staff were friendly and attentive throughout the evening. I ate a variety of delicious fish and pasta dishes from the taster menu with perfect wine pairings. Loved the dessert and petit fours accompanied by mini lollypops.

My husband made reservations based on the reviews and rating on Trip Advisor. We had a wonderful evening. Villa Antonia was accommodating, we had to move our reservation twice and it was not a problem for them. We arrived on a beautiful night and had a perfect view of the city lights and the water. The wait staff were very attentive but not intrusive. I would have preferred they took my drink order a bit faster than they did. I had the lamb which was cooked and seasoned perfectly, my husband had the peach soup which was so incredible--you must try it and the swordfish. We weren't going to have dessert due to the delicious food and wine we had consumed. The owner actually looked hurt that we weren't going to order, so he had a small sampling of cookies brought to us and some fruity lollipops. The presentation for all the food was well done. I did not feel our meal was overpriced at all.

This a great restaurant in what looks like a historic castle setting, right across from the hotel Capotaormina. We had a fantastic dinner. Not cheap by any measure but worth it. The dishes are very creative and well presented. Highly recommended for celebrations or any other occasion.

We ate here twice during our week in Sicily and both times were superb. Lovely, attentive staff and amazing food. Slightly more expensive than your ordinary restaurant but well worth it.

Quite easily one of the best evenings I have had at dinner. The food was spectacular, and even that seems like an understatement. We had pasta stuffed with seafood, vegetarian lasagna and baked fish. The views from the restaurant over the bay are fantastic and the staff were friendly, professional and very funny.

Thank you from "the Mongolians".
