Enter our noble ‘salotto’ and anticipate a showcase of Sicilian gastronomy at Otto Geleng. Enamoured by the region’s bountiful natural ingredients, executive chef Roberto Toro skilfully leads you on a refined, evocative journey, rich in delicious nostalgia.
There’s a reason why Taormina has a reputation for inspiring great artists, including the young German painter who gives our restaurant its name. Cinematic views of Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea frame this cultured town, which remains in constant conversation with fascinating history. Find us perched up on its hillside, just a stone’s throw away from the ancient Greek Theatre.
Our restaurant evokes a traditional 'salotto buono' — a refined, familial dining space that channels innate sophistication. Exquisite, hand-stitched linens recall the traditional ‘corredo’, or trousseau, of a Sicilian bride, while flickering oil lamps create an atmosphere of elegant, effortless intimacy.
It’s no surprise that Otto Geleng is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Taormina. Clink crystal glasses, breathe in the heady scent of bougainvillaea, and bask in the Baroque-inspired beauty.
