Sicilians build things like they will live forever and eat like they will die tomorrow.

FOR ESPRESSO…Wunder Bar – Located in the center of Taormina off of Corso Umberto, it is the perfect place to watch the world go by.
FOR PIZZA…Trattoria Mamma Rosa – We shared a lovely stormy afternoon at Mamma Rosa with a bottle of wine and a couple of pizzas.
FOR CANNOLI…Laboratorio Pasticceria Roberto – MUST GO! You have not had cannoli until you have had them from Roberto’s…
FOR PASTA…Ristorante Pizzeria Tiramis├╣ – Still my favorite pasta I have ever had, Pasta alla Norma!
FOR APERTIVO…Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo – There is no better view of Mt. Etna and Taormina than from the Grand Timeo. A drink might lead to dinner too (you won’t want to leave), highly recommend sharing a romantic meal on their terrace.
MUST DO…Isola Bella – Enjoy a cocktail on the beach and explore “the beautiful island” (Bring your beach shoes, it is a little rocky!)
