Lunch between Taormina and Syracuse

My husband and I are splitting our stay between Taormina and Syracuse during our upcoming stay in Sicily and would like to stop somewhere for lunch on the way on the drive between the two. We are preferably looking for somewhere outside a main town as we will probably always be eating inside Taormina and Syracuse during our stay in the two towns so would be good to try somewhere a little different, perhaps in the countryside or a small village. Any ideas?

FYI we are spending our final two nights at ciucis manor near agrigento.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

If you are willing to go well out of your way Vizzini or Palazzolo Acreide. But the direct route is under 2 hours and a lot of the region you pass through is urban and industrial.

Just between Syracusa and Taormina I can advise you to visit Stazzo, a nice and laid back fishing village.

There are a few restaurants in the village, the most local one is "La Fornace" serving excellent (!) pizza.

If you want a more sophisticated lunch/dinner you can go to "I Ruderi" in Acireale.

Both are known here on TA.

Welcome to Sicily Allie247!

Since you'll be spending your time in the towns along Eastern Sicily, perhaps consider lunch at an Etna winery.
