This restaurant should rank higher in the Taormina restaurant lists. The view, especially at sunset, is gorgeous, the menu enticing, and service professional (not particularly warm). We had marinated smoked swordfish and tuna as an appetizer: absolutely fabulous and enough for two. The "lamb chops"...More

A magnificent villa of the 15th century splendidly restored, is the ideal setting of the restaurant-pizzeria "Granduca". Reception rooms, terraces and the garden all have a view of the sea and the greek theater, which give your meeting and receptions distinction. Cucine is typical from Sicily. It's a pleasure to eat, not only for the quality meals, but also for the beauty of the place.
