The location and the view are amazing! And, if you want to spend time on the beach, they will gladly lease you a chair, towel and you can spend the whole day on the beach. The restaurant has really terrific, but simple/authentic food. They make their own bread, the usually have a daily pasta (homemade pasta of course), the fish... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife and child, and was recommended today's special - pasta with shrimps for 16 euro. After waiting one hour they served me a small plate of pasta with two tiny shrimps. I complained and they came back with the same plate topped with 5-6 tiny shrimp. This was a joke, so asked for...

Starting from the fact that I love Taormina, I can tell you that there are so many beautiful places where to go around, but this Lido though is quite small, has a great atmosphere. The staff is warm, always at your disposal and looking to meet your requirements. The view from the beach is magical - you cannot stop to... More

The food was very fresh and delicious. Great pizza and pasta options. I loved the prawns and gnocchi in pistachio sauce. Every coffee came with a home made biscuit and they had great catch/and dish of the day. The view/balcony area is great to have a drink on and relax. The quality of food we had here was definitely better... More

This is a fantastic place with the best Linguine alla Coze y Vongole (clams & muscles) around. Fresh ingredients, prepared simply but flavourfully, in a perfect setting right on the beach with crystal clear blue waters. We kept coming back everyday for lunch it was so good. Only problem was deciding between the Linguine alla Vongole and the Bruschetta Pizza... More

Very tasty food, friendly service, reasonable prices, with a lovely situation right on the beach. Daily specials were delicious but also staples like pasta and toasted sandwiches which were great for the kids. We ate in the downstairs cafe (There is also an upstairs, I'm not sure what the difference is)

Great place for Breakfast or lunch. Whilst staying in Taormina and spending the day on the beach we have enjoyed Lido La Pigna. The staff are friendly and have time for you, which is not always found in some of the Taormina restaurants, worth a visit. Try the Sicilian breakfast. Grazie Millie

This is a great spot to sit with a drink and watch the sea as it sits centrally in the bay with elevated two tier seating areas. The food is poor (calamari like industrial duty rubber bands), but the attentive staff go some way to redress this. I assume its position in the tripadvisor rankings are due to high footfall.

Despite this being a bit of hike to get to, it was a nice way to spend a beautiful day in Taormina. We did have to watch out for jellyfish while we were there, but the beaches were very well maintained. The drinks were delicious, but the food was fairly mediocre. If you've seen all of the city and need... More

Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay. Don't miss the "Lido La Pigna Experience"... a deep dive in the Sicilian Heritage.
