Great for a cuppa

As a solo traveller I look for quiet places for a cup of tea. I found this place opposite my hotel, they made me so welcome, By day two they knew how I liked my tea and accepted that while they have a lovely garden I preferred to sit inside, often they would move the place setting for me to... read more

We were staying at a nearby hotel and fancied a pizza for lunch. We thought to try the pizzeria next door, but they didn't fire up the oven until later in the day, so we opted for Ristorante Castelluccio instead. Ended up having one of the best pizzas I've had in a very long time. Just a simple margherita, but... More

Visited the Ristorante Castelluccio on recommendation from our hotel and kept returning. We received a warm welcome each time from Enrico and Giancarlo indeed all the staff were very friendly and obliging. My 93 year old father was especially well looked after and made to feel very much at home. The menu is quite extensive with a good choice of... More

Wonderful meal in a great garden setting. Great service, even though the restaurant was very busy. Really nice food and comprehensive wine selection. The Caponata was excellent. Would definitely return and recommend to others.

Ate there 3 times while we were in Taormina, twice for lunch and once for dinner. Had the fresh soup all 3 times…fantastic. Pizza very good. At dinner had the ravioli, others had spaghetti with clams, swordfish, all were excellent. Nice garden to eat in

What a special place this restaurant is! During our weeklong visit to Taormina, we had four meals from this restaurant. Both of the owners, Enrico and Giancarlo, are very friendly and personable even coming out to greet us as we returned to the apartment we rented one evening. As the apartment was next door, it was such a wonderful treat... More

My wife never gives anything(!) Full marks till this evening. Great service really nice food despite a large party of c30 being in town. Ate in the garden with no great signs of mosquitos. Not sure how stuffed sardines are supposed to taste but mine were marvellous. Will definitely go back before we go home.
