Taormina Pizzeria Restaurant  Playa del Inglés

Maspalomas has a big offer of Italian gastronomy, you can find Italian restaurants and pizzerias almost everywhere in the resort. However, they are not all the same, and the quality and taste of their dishes are not always top-notch. Good Italian restaurants are rare, but Taormina is one of them.

Taormina is one of the few restaurants in Maspalomas offering real Italian food and homemade dishes with fresh ingredients. All is cooked by the house chef himself, a real great signature from Sicily. The owners are Tiziana and Alessandro, partners in love and in business. Alessandro is the chef of the restaurant, and Tiziana is in charge of the dining room, the management, and the public relations of the place. She's the lady who greets you at the door with her great smile, always with a nice word for you and a friendly attitude. And this is her voice you can hear when you call by phone. For his part, Alessandro is the son of a famous chef in his region, and it was important for him to pay tribute to his father and his native land. He has had the art of cocking in his blood for many generations.

Taormina is a place for everybody, even for your pet ! Come by yourself or with your beloved, you will always enjoy your experience.

Tiziana and Alessandro are from the south of Sicily, more exactly from the little town of Taormina, where Alessandro was born, and from which comes the name of the restaurant, a very famous city in fact, well-known for its gastronomy and the art of living even out of the country. Both have been living in Gran Canaria for three years now and are really happy to be here.

They have no regrets about their new life in the Canary Islands. They chose to move here mainly for the great weather because it's like the one they have in their native region. The sun is important for everybody ! But before coming here, they made a stop in Berlin for several years, and they opened their first restaurant there. Today, many of their customers and friends from Germany keep coming to eat in their restaurant, and they are very happy and proud of this.

« We hope that this new concept and location, a modern and beautiful place, will work very well, and we wish to be happy and to find serenity. And of course, we would like to make customers feel happy too, enjoying every moment with us in our new Taormina. »

The very first Taormina opened in 2018 in Berlin, where they lived for almost ten years before coming to Gran Canaria. Once in here, Tiziana and Alessandro opened the second Taormina, located in Campo Internacional, with a lot of success. But now, they just moved the restaurant to a brand new place, in the heart of Playa del Inglés, on the Avenida de Tirajana, near the Yumbo, in the vibrant touristic scene of the seaside resort.

For getting this new place, the happy partners took advantage of a great opportunity that suddenly appeared and that they did not let pass. They were able to transform an old pharmacy into a magnificent new space, bright and welcoming, with a designer interior room and a large, sunny, and comfortable open-air terrace. Go see it with your eyes, you won't be disappointed. This is a nice place to be. Just closed to the famous Reds Club, a popular gay cruising bar. The new premises allows to sit up to seventy people, it's the perfect place to enjoy the nice Maspalomas' weather all year and also some music live show or sporting event on big screen.

The real taste of Sicily in Maspalomas

What about the dishes and specialties at Taormina restaurant ? They only have fresh products, everyday fresh meat and fish. They prepare their own pasta and, of course, pizza too. Cakes are all homemade. The menu is large, and you can find not only delicious pizzas but also pasta, cheeses, desserts, cold cuts (excellent ham and sausage), Italian tapas, capresa salad, seafood, meat, gnocchis, carpaccio, etc. All the cuisine is marked by the tradition of the Sicily region, and the prices are very affordable.

For Tiziana and Alessandro, it is very important to be part of the gay community in Maspalomas. They say they love gay clients and that they are the best. Since they were in Berlin, gay people have always been loyal and very good customers. They are very grateful to them, and they also thank Dunas Map for its wonderful promotion and its fantastic support.
