About Taormina Restaurant

For faultless Italian cuisine in the multiethnic London enclave of Bayswater, many are turning to (or turning back to, or have never left!) Taormina Restaurant – family-owned and run since 1960. You can smell what’s on offer before you see it, before you taste it – almost the instant you turn down Craven Terrace after alighting from Lancaster Gate underground, just above Hyde Park, or from Paddington. And indeed gourmets and foodies from all over London are flocking to the restaurant to enjoy the cuisine and hospitality of the bel paese in dishes that actually walk the walk.

We had a fantastic evening and the staff were incredibly attentive. The stuffed Aubergines as a starter were incredible and I highly recommend them. We will be back for sure!
