Glossy, airy, and reminiscent of Rome during the heyday of Gina Lollobrigida, La Giara evokes a warmed-over la dolce vita. Views sweep from the veranda's outdoor tables over the bay of Taormina. The Art Deco ambience is also inviting, with marble floors and columns shaped from stone quarried in the fields outside Syracuse. The pastas are meals in themselves; I'm especially fond of the ricotta-stuffed cannelloni. The fresh fish of the day is grilled to perfection, and meats are cooked equally well. Other enticing menu items include filet of pork cooked with dried fruit and dressed with Marsala wine, or rolled sea bass stuffed with aromatic breadcrumbs with cherry tomatoes and capers. Important: check its website for availability, as the restaurant is a popular wedding reception venue, and closes for those and other events.
