La Giara Review
This restaurant, named after a giant vase unearthed under the bar, is famous for being one of Taormina's oldest restaurants. The food's not bad, either. The kitchen blends upscale modern techniques with the simple flavors of traditional specialties. It specializes in everything fish: one spectacular dish is the fish cartoccio (wrapped in paper and baked). You can also extend your evening at the popular, if touristy, piano bar, or at the dance club that operates here on Saturday night (and every night in August). There's a terrace with stunning views, too.
