Had a pleasant coffee and antipasto, but it is the decor that makes this cafe worth a visit in preference to others in Castelmola. Penises everywhere from subtle (floor tiles, light fittings and door handles) to blantantly obvious!

This bar/restaurant is maybe not adequate for a family with children due to the presence of hundreds of particular 'souvenir'. That said, it is a fantastic place! View is awesome, direct on the gulf and mount Etna, the food is typical and well made. Personnel...More

I don't think you should go there with young children unless you want a crash course in where babies come from when they visit the facilities. We were a mixed group of 8 adults who do not consider ourselves straightlaced normally! Certainly never seen anything...More

The bar Turrisi is a place of worship located in Castelmola. Founded in 1947 at the hands of the rider Salvatore Turrisi, was born as an inn for foreigners where they were sipping tasty almond wine made ​​with white grapes and infusion of bitter almonds. Structure after the war that has turned into a hotel, here you can enjoy over the almond wine, pizzas, pasta dishes ices and ice cream. Also extends over four elevations with views of the Duomo of Castelmola Gulf of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. He became famous for his sculptures representing the phallic worship and the very free social custom that made Taormina a cultural reference for many artists and not. Many magazines show us how one of the attractions of Sicily, but we like to think that convey a thought of being Sicilian and freedom of expression, in a structure difficult to manage since the 4 levels. Who does not know how to interpret these places far from wanting to be rude, and does not know or does not have the respect of all that, the place to find elsewhere.
