Taormina’s Pizza and Pasta is located on Jacksonville Road right off of Street Road in Warminster. This local family Italian restaurant is very well known around the area.

Taormina’s offers a wide variety of appetizer dishes, entrées, and last but certainly not least, desserts. Their food is always held to excellent standards and never fails to impress.

To start off the perfect dining experience, one must choose a starter or an appetizer. When it comes to satisfying that hunger just enough so you will still have room in your stomach for your entrée and even dessert, the Fried Mozzarella and Bruschetta are sure to do just the trick. The Fried Mozzarella is served as breaded mozzarella sticks with Taormina’s homemade tomato sauce on the side. One bite into this dish, and you will know why so many love it. The Bruschetta is always served to perfection. Fresh chopped tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil top a fresh piece of focaccia bread to make your mouth water for more.

When ordering an entrée, you want to make sure you are getting enough for what you paid for, and Taormina’s ensures that you do. Each entrée fills the whole plate, making you question how you will finish it, but trust me, this place will never run out of takeout boxes.

The Chicken Parmigiana tops the list as the best dish in the restaurant. A tender white meat chicken is coated with fresh bread crumbs and topped with melted mozzarella cheese and their famous tomato sauce.

Second on the “best dish list” is the Salmon Sicilian. This dish is a pan-seared salmon, served beautifully with mushrooms in a white wine rosemary sauce over sautéed spinach. Your stomach is sure to growl from both the smell and look of this beautifully served entrée.

When it comes to everyone’s favorite part of the dining experience, what do you pick for dessert? Taormina’s has that covered. Their homemade Tiramisu is one for the books. This dessert will complete your amazing experience here and leave you nothing but satisfied.

When dining at Taormina’s, you feel like you are a part of the family. From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out, they make you feel welcomed, determined to make you their number one priority. If you’re not satisfied, neither are they.

Their service is something like no other restaurant. If a waiter or even an owner sees that your table hasn’t been helped yet, whether a busy or slow night, they will make sure that they get you started with your drinks and any appetizers or starters your table wants.

The waiters or waitresses are always very friendly and seem to have a great attitude when serving your table. The staff tries to make a personal connection with you, whether it’s a special occasion or just a night out.

The atmosphere here is vibrant, energetic and bright. With windows all around, it gives the restaurant an elegant inside-outside experience.

When placing an order, Taormina’s always times the serving of food perfectly. No matter when you order your appetizer, they always have your table’s entrées come out once you are finished. Also, they bring all of your food out hot at the same time, so nobody is waiting for somebody to get an entrée while your dinners are getting cold.  

Overall, Taormina’s is the perfect place for a birthday or anniversary dinner, a date, or even just a nice night out with the family. This restaurant has so much to offer all at great prices and with good quality, homemade food. It is wonderful to have such a quality family-owned restaurant right around the corner that is held to such great expectations.
