The restaurant is blessed with magical panoramic views of Mount Etna and the Bay of Taormina, the menu focuses on seasonal produce and local specialities including Pachino cherry tomatoes and Bronte pistachios. The poolside bar serves a wide variety of drinks, cocktails and snacks to enjoy in the peaceful garden surroundings.
