Where to eat Seafood food in Taormina: The Best Restaurants and Bars

June 30, 2020 Russell Mellin

Find out what Seafood restaurants to try in Taormina. Volcanic Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea provide the cinema-worthy backdrop for Taormina, Sicily's legendary resort town. Twisting medieval streets and a second-century Greek theater add to its romantic air, which inspired the writings of D.H. Lawrence and Truman Capote. Take a cable car to the beach, or walk uphill behind the Church of St. Joseph for panoramic views.

We stumbled on this excellent restaurant tucked away from view just 200 metres from the busy main street in Taormina (the Corso Umberto).The food and service were excellent. A real find. So much so that we intend to return for another meal before the end of our three day stay.

My friends and I couldn’t have wnjoyed our meal more...from the delicious ruby red cherry tomatoes to our amazing mains of sword fish rolls, seabass rolls with golden raisons, pine nuts on the most delicious zucchini puree and mushroom risotto....only to finish with an order of mouth watering pistachio parfait, cannolis and tiramisu that we all shared. The evening was rounded out with gracious service, especially our waiter, Luca. So worth a visit. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Not sure where to start. But I do know, is when you’ve found a restaurant like this, it is almost an insult to not dedicate some words about this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Just from the moment we entered the restaurant, we were met by an outstanding friendly and positive staff. These folks are truly service minded, and not even once, you feel that it is a self-imposed routine, it is simply by heart. Due to last minute booking we got table behind the front row – meaning one step inside from those heading to the breathtaking sea view. After enjoying the starter and 1st glass of wine, we got the offer to move to the front row. Not because we asked to, but at their own initiative. Obviously, we accepted, and the staff moved all our table “gear” in less than a few minutes. This is only one example (of many) of their nearly overwhelming care, attention and service-mind which belongs to another league than many other over-rated restaurants. When it comes to the food, let me put it this way: after tasting their dishes, the bar will be set for all your future restaurants visit. Exquisite, delicious, creative, you name it. An amazing firework of tastes. Every small detail made with the purpose to remind you that when it comes to food, everything tiny detail matters. We tried pasta, tuna, and steak. All in the category “the best we ever had”. For dessert, we asked for simple ice cream, well, that’s what we thought. It was homemade ice cream, which was the soft, balanced, not too sweet, best ice cream we ever tried. I must admit we are extremely picky both of us; “too much”, “too little”, “perhaps more or less salt & pepper”. It felt almost strange to not have had any need for such criticism, not even once, what happened? I won’t consider myself an exaggerating person, but this time during dinning I caught myself thinking this was one of the best (if not THE best) dinner I ever had. It could have been the presence of my beautiful better half sitting by my side, the outstanding sea view, the friendly staff, the entire atmosphere. In any case, I tend to think this place provided all the “ingredients” to make it the best dinner in my life so far. You simply know that this is those kinds of moments you will look back to. Always. Before leaving, me and my girlfriend, promised to visit this place again in the future to remind and revive this life-changing dinning and moment. We recommend this experience to anyone else (and almost “envy” those been lucky to enjoy this place)

We had an excellent evening meal here in early October and were able to dine, al fresco, thanks to the warm weather. The service was friendly and attentive. The food delicious. The restaurant is located just 400 metres from the main pedestrian thoroughfare of Taormina (the Corso Umberto) and yet, the restaurant has a peaceful, relaxed ambience. Highly recommended.

Among the best restaurants in the center of Taormina, our cuisine is based on Sicilian traditions and the delicacies of meat and fish. Tradition and romance make the five favorite arches in Taormina.

The presentation of all the courses was excellent. The service was top notch. Very friendly, fun and polite. Of course, the view is amazing and with the live music in the square made for a nice romantic anniversary dinner for us.Bonus was the number of meat dishes available compared to most restaurants in the area. The steak was outstanding as well as the Tiramisu dessert.Reserve a balcony table if you can. But the tables inside are also nice.
