Walking up to Saraceno was so worth it. Looking over Taormina in the dark, seeing the the lights highlight the beauty of the hills and the coastline added to the atmospheric time we were having. The seafood with cous cous is one of the most marvellous meals of my life. We did go back and the pizza was pretty good too!!

A lovely evening, totally memorable. I wouldn't have missed it.

This is a family place close to Villa Ducale with similar views of the coast and Etna - the food was decidely Italian with friendly and helpful service. We arrived, having checked in at the hotel, after a long and tiring journey feeling decidedly weary - we left, after a very enjoyable and not expensive meal, feeling very refreshed and that we had found yet another good value place to eat.

The views from this outside portion of the restaurant are really fabulous. It is a very busy and popular place, with locals and tourists alike. They turn over the tables rapidly, and food comes out very quickly. We had a big salad to share and really good pizzas. The crust was nice and thin, wood fired as I like it.
Only downside was that we were seated next to a family with two kids under age 4, both who spent the entire meal screaming at the top of their lungs. We weren't the only ones in the restaurant bothered by this. The family was German (or at least spoke German). A Sicilian grandmother seated on the other side of us turned and glared at them, but the parents were oblivious. They even ordered coffee after the meal and sat and drank it and smoked cigarettes while the kids screamed. Obviously not the restaurants fault, but it made our meal less than relaxing.

We ate inside and the restaurant was very warm & welcoming. The food, however, was not all so great. The assorted seafood appetizer although beautifully presented, was rather bland. My veal with lemon sauce was very good. My husband's Sicilian style fish,however, did not smell fresh (had a strong fishy odor). He ate it, but I would have sent it back-something I never do. Maybe it was just an off might but I would not return.
