Lonely Planet review

A meal on the rooftop terrace at La Giara is a Taormina classic. This is one of the best-looking restaurants in town, with a smooth art deco interior and a piano bar worthy of Bogart in Casablanca . The food is modern but grounded in island tradition, with dishes such as risotto with wild herbs, and squid served in a Marsala reduction. Bookings essential.
