Local restaurants
Restaurants in or very near to Piedimonte Etneo
Family owned restaurant/pizzeria (C, K and J are the kids initials) with lovely food. For dramatics go for the Volcano pizza (set alight) or for a taste explosion anything with CKJ in the title is usually great. This restaurant used to be a cinema so look out for the cinematic props. Could have better decor and sometimes lacks atmosphere but the food and prices make up for this. Sit outside on the street in warm weather!

Bars
Our favourite bar in (actually just outside of) Taormina. The village of Castelmola is worth walking up to for the views and this bar, which we affectionately call ‘The Penis Bar’. Not for young children unless you want to explain the birds and the bees to them!
