Villa Sant' Andrea


Posted by Hello
We're back from a glorious week in Taormina, Sicily. We stayed at Villa Sant' Andrea, the charming hotel located in Mazzaro, the seaside community beneath Taormina. Famished from our flight and many trying transfers, we headed straight for Ristorante Oliviero having barely put our luggage down. This excellent restaurant in a postcard-perfect setting overlooking the coastline, conveniently enough, happens to be located within Sant' Andrea's premises.

The waiter promptly brought us plates of succulent pescespada (swordfish), locally caught and smoked, marinated with dill and diced peaches.

Hi Joycelyn - I'm glad you had a wonderful time in Sicily. I've stayed in Taormina too (well, that was just after I watched the filim Le Grand Bleu...) This dish looks/sounds irresistible, I love swordfish.
