A beautiful view, friendly service, delicious food (in very large quantities) and a good price make this restaurant a must for anyone visiting Taormina or Castelmola. They provide a multi-course fish menu for 35 euros and even when you are full, it’s hard to stop...More

Our restaurant is surrounded by the nature near a nice village called Castelmola , 3km from Taormina, with a terrace and a breathtaking view. It is also possible to hire two double rooms to stay overnight. The owner and chef Alfina wants to provide the Sicilian kitchen, beginning with typical recipes using only seasonal products, over to the passion for cooking.The fresh pasta is a product of our kitchen. We buy the vegetables from local farmers.From May on we begin with a menu based on local fish. We do our best to offer you a lunch/dinner with selected ingredients cooked freshly by our chef and owner Alfina.
