A piece of paradise on earth. A small terrace in one of the most gorgeous little bay of the Ionian sea; a picture post-card with the sea, the fishermen’s boats, the typical landscape full of green and white rocks that seems to fall down into the bleu sea, and in the middle the terrace, with the roof covered with a winding old grape!

It’s hard to believe, but we are in one of the most resonable place of the world:

Taormina Mazzarò beach.


Il Barcaiolo restaurant was created in 1981 for the will of the extraordinary (today missing) Pancrazia Cannavò. She was a very special and practical woman, with a

great passion for the family and for cookery. So, suddenly she understood she could

offer something special to them who came to visit the place, and also a good opportunity to all the family.


So, with the help of her husband  Placido, her mother Concetta, her brothers Marinella and Roberto and her sons Concetta, Francesco and Annamaria, all

Together they began this new adventure: “ Became restaurant dealer”.

Today, after so many years of a total care and love for people and work, we are still here with the good advices of our customers and friends trying to give you all the comfort of a special welcome and hospitality, with the warmth and courtesy that

“ Mamma Pancrazia” (1946— 2004)

 gave to all her guests.
