A restaurant in a small square in the mountain top town Castelmola near Taormina. The square really only is big enough for 3 restaurants, a bar and a church and looks up at Mount Etna (which was erupting when we were there).

Sicilian starters were perfect and fresh fish cooked to your choice.

Good wine list (not cheap) and excellent friendly service.

Without doubt the best spot to eat if you are in Taormina - it is a bus ride up and back but the trip itself is fairly spectacular.

Staff were attentive. Food was good and wine was excellent. We did find a place which wasn't on the tripadvisor list in Castlmola where the service and food were better and a lot less expensive.

We visited Castelmola on the recommendation of our hotel , in particular the restaurant Bocciola . The service could not be faulted , excellent , in particular the head waiter .wine was chosen , but unfortunately corked . Nothing too much trouble , another bottle was presented . Entree was excellent , pasta good , but the lamb dish atrocious .fatty , tough and definitely old mutton . Again , the waiter was most apologetic and offers another dish . When the bill was presented , happy to say we were not charged for the course that was unacceptable . In a nutshell , excellent service , let down by poor quality produce .
