We chose this restaurant for dinner exclusively based on its location. We were disappointed by the food which is overpriced and not very tasty. Many other options in the area that could offer you value for the money and a nice dinner experience.

The Turrisi family is a long-time fixture in Castelmola. The family (brothers, cousins, nephews, uncles, etc.) own many of the business establishments in this small community. They all work hard. This bar/restaurant is the flagship of the Turrisi family. Awesome views from the rooftop deck...More

Popped in for a drink on our trip to Castelmola. The phallic decor made us giggle and the cocktails made us giggle more- very strong! Shame about the slow waiter service, but the barman was cool.

The bar Turrisi is a place of worship located in Castelmola. Founded in 1947 at the hands of the rider Salvatore Turrisi, was born as an inn for foreigners where they were sipping tasty almond wine made ​​with white grapes and infusion of bitter almonds. Structure after the war that has turned into a hotel, here you can enjoy over the almond wine, pizzas, pasta dishes ices and ice cream. Also extends over four elevations with views of the Duomo of Castelmola Gulf of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. He became famous for his sculptures representing the phallic worship and the very free social custom that made Taormina a cultural reference for many artists and not. Many magazines show us how one of the attractions of Sicily, but we like to think that convey a thought of being Sicilian and freedom of expression, in a structure difficult to manage since the 4 levels. Who does not know how to interpret these places far from wanting to be rude, and does not know or does not have the respect of all that, the place to find elsewhere.
