    Palermo Restaurants

    If you like sweets you will be happy in Palermo. At every corner there is a bakery and inside every bakery there is a treasure of cannoli, pasta di mandorle, cassata and more. The best bakery will build your cannolo right there, in front of your eyes, they do not want the fried pastry dough shell to get soggy, so they keep it aside and add the...

  • Da Pippo - Castelmola

    Taormina Restaurants

    We found this place completely by chance. We were trying to walk into another restaurant (the Bar Europa, if I'm not mistaken), when we were stopped by a nice elderly Sicilian woman who told us it was closed. She led us to the Cosmopolitan da Pippo, and introduced us to an elderly gentleman called Guiseppe, who apparently was the owner of the...

    Palermo Restaurants

    Opened in 1834, the Anticca Focacceria San Francesco is one of the city's oldest restaurants. It sells a wide range of authentic Sicilian cuisine, encompassing pastas, pizzas, seafoods - pretty much every speciality seems to be covered. They also offer a selection of dishes from around the world. The ground floor is a tavola calda - a fast food...

  • Il Baccanale

    4 out of 5 stars

    Taormina Restaurants

    One of many restaurants in a little alley. Great food, very reasonable prices, wide selection. Sicily is known for it's seafood. Everything I've had here is very good. The stuffed calamari, though, are to die for.

  • Pizzottando

    Palermo Restaurants

    This small pizza house was not far from our hotel... We had some walk in the direction of city center and it was just across the church of San Francesco Saverino. The waiter was a tipical Sicilian guy and helped us to choose a tipical Sicilian wine and pizza... I had pizza Siciliana and Lo had a pizza that named La faccia della vecchia (Old...

  • La Botte

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Taormina Restaurants

    The night we visited this restaurant they were catering for a christening party, so it seems to be somewhere the locals go. Certainly the food was excellent. I had ravioli with ricotta in a pistachio sauce, followed by sarde beccafico (sardines stuffed to resemble small birds), both of which were absolutely delicious. The creme caramel I had for...

    One other great thing of Italian food is the Ice Cream there's nothing like it!!!

Ice Cream what else.... ;-) my favorite are chocolate and lemon

  • La Posada

    Palermo Restaurants

    We dined here late one night after our return from Ustica. There seemed to be a high percentage of locals which is obviously a good sign although, from the outside at least, this looked to be a fairly bog-standard pizzeria. Wrong. It was an excellent pizzeria with good service, excellent pasta and pizza dishes, and was reasonably priced with a...

  • Le Naumachie

    Taormina Restaurants

    This restaurant is named after the nearby ruins of the ancient Greco-Roman Naumachia. The food and its presentation is however very modern (though one or two dishes are what Michael Winner might term 'historic'). Bread comes with olive oil for dipping and an assortment of different salts (plain, orange and sage. A 'carpaccio' of local cheeses was...

  • Il Delfino

    Taormina Restaurants

    Taormina is not the place for vast, sandy beaches. The beach is quite small and rocky, but has nice views. I think the best way to enjoy the sea at Taormina is to have lunch at one of the beach-side restaurants. Il Delfino is a private lido with sun loungers and pedaloes for hire, as well as a snack bar and a restaurant. We went for seafood...

  • Grotta Azzurra

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Taormina Restaurants

    This restaurant specialises in fish and seafood, and has a very impressive display of fresh fish and a very enthusiastic owner. This is very tempting, but do be aware that a lot of the fish is charged by weight. (They will weigh the fish and tell you the weight and cost before they cook it for you, but if you get carried away, it can be an...

    This is one of several restaurants on Corso Umberto which has a terrace with great views. The entrance is down a short alley off the Corso. We visited an lunchtime and just had a pasta dish each.

  • Gallo Cedrone - Castelmola

    Taormina Restaurants

    The scenery is not nearly as dramatic as what you will see across the path at the Cosmopolitan Da Pippo, but you will get a great view of Mount Etna on clear days. The food was good. I didn't have any elaborate meals here as opposed to what I had at the Cosmopolitan Da Pippo, but it is good for a quick pizza or sandwich and a few bottles of...

  • La Buca

    Taormina Restaurants

    When dining in Taormina, look for a restaurant that has an outside patio with table that have a view of the sea below. The meal will seem ten times better due to the rush of goodfeel the sea and the climbing hills to where you sit befall your senses. La Buca is such a place and well worth waiting for a table by the wall outside. The ambience of...

  • O'Sciality

    Taormina Restaurants

    After in-depth research, my husband declared that this was the best gelateria in Taormina (which is an accolade indeed - I have to say that all the ice-cream I ate in Taormina was delicious). His favourite was the strawberry. I can recommend the coffee ice-cream, but they do a huge range of flavours. If you can't face a cloying ice-cream, they...

  • Arancini in Corso

    Taormina Restaurants

    If you just want a snack for lunch, you can get an arancino (Sicilian rice ball) and a soft drink here for 4 euros 50. They come with a range of fillings, from the traditional meat and peas, to tuna or sausage. Arancini, obviously! They do sell other snacks,such as pizza, but I didn't try those. The arancini, however, are the best we had in...

  • Mirage

    Taormina Restaurants

    This restaurant is on via Roma. The outdoor seating area is next to the tennis court entrance to the Giardino Pubblico, and has a wonderful view over the bay and Mount Etna. It's one of the more reasonably-priced restaurants in Taormina, but the food is good. Just watch out for the fish-loving wasps, which are a hazard when eating outside anywhere...

    Taormina Restaurants

    Thanks to our guide we had a "magnificent" lunch at the reastaurant & pizzeria called Da Angelina. The guide was forcing us to leave Taormina, rushing like hell, because we had to reach on time at this restaurant. It was big disappointment for the whole gruop because lunch was literaly pathetic and barely eatable. The restaurant is located at the...

  • Texicana

    Taormina Restaurants

    This is a nice option to all the italian restaurants in Taormina, although they also have pizza. First day we eat there, the food was great and we were happy, but the next day I was very disappointed. I ordered fajitas with chicken, and got a plate with lots of salty chicken with cheese and peppers (paprika), and only ONE small fajita (taco) to eat...

  • Mocambo

    Taormina Restaurants

    This is the perfect place to sit down and watch the world go by. Its located on piazza IX Aprile so everybody walks past there. Probably its where you go to see and be seen. The Drinks aren't realy cheap but the sights are worth the price. I liked the "Apperitivo da Casa" Lots of fruit juice and some kind of alcohol in it.

  • Antipasto perfection

    Another day, another delicious lunch, this time in Zafferana Etnea, an attractive small town we'd passed through on our way up Mt Etna. Liking the look of it, we marked it as somewhere to stop for lunch on our way down to the coast but the town seemed to be closed for business, all apart from a pink-painted place with plastic chairs and tables on...

  • Simple Dinner under the Stars :)

    Most of the times we arrived in the camping early in the evening. After the whole day of driving and sightseeing, it was nice to settle and have some rest. The first thing we had to do was finding a suitable place to put the tent and then came the more pleasant part: the dinner. Sicily offers plenty of good quality local specialities, and fresh...

Owner, Riccardo and his team have turned the old stables of the 16th century palazzo into a warm and atmospheric haven of...

  • Chilly treats

    It was the Arabs who first developed a taste for frozen desserts in Sicily. Combining their traditional fruit syrups (sarbat) with ice from Mt Etna they made granita - that delicious and cooling slush of fruit syrup - so refreshing on a hot summer day. When some clever cook decided to experiment with the addition of milk, gelato was born. Adding...

  • Pitstop lunches

    Long, indulgent lunches are great, but not for every day, even when you're on holiday. With so many wonderful places to see (some of them quite out of the way) not to mention markets full of the most fabulous fresh produce, there are days when a simple meal is all you want, whether it's a sandwich and a cold drink at a small cafe, a roadside picnic...

  • Rabbit stew and caponata

    It was the promise of a house speciality of rabbit stew that made up our minds for us when deciding where to eat lunch the day we visited the Villa Romana de Casale near Piazza Armerina. La Ruota is "reknowned throughout central Sicily for its hearty rural fare" according to one guide book, so, even though we tend to be wary of restaurants that are...

    Definitely the best restaurant in Marettimo! Food is good and service is very nice and friendly. Don't expect to find incredible restaurants in Marettimo, but this is really the most interesting one. I've to say they're also quite expensive, but that's quite normal cause everything there is brought by boat. Try the busiate, which is a sort of hand...

    I was surprised to find such a place! It's a very typical restaurant, were you can eat for less than 10 €. Their specialties is horse meat (!) that they roast just in front of the restaurant. Locals eat the large and thin steak in a sandwich.In Catania you will also find butchers cooking meat for you in front of their shop!
