Our hotel recommended this restaurant as one of the excellent local choices. Our family of five adults loved this place!! We ate here three times!! My husband and daughter particularly enjoyed the pasta muddica-- pasta with sardines and bread crumbs. Enrico and Giancarlo are great chefs and hosts!! Sicilian wine offerings were delicious. Really enjoyed the outdoor setting, And the... More

We ate here on our first night in Taormina as it was by our hotel. It is easily one of the best restaurants by the beach in this area. The waiters were all very friendly and welcoming and the service was good. The pizza was some of the best we had during our trip and the starters were delicious too.... More

We spent our honeymoon in Taormina and ate here several times. There are many good restaurants around here and it is difficult to choose between them but was one of our favourites - excellent menu and excellent food thank you. Would eat here again.

Our tour took us to this restaurant for dinner. We had pasta with a mild very tasty tomato sauce (very good); breaded sea bass, breaded, small piece of potato and a thin slice of zucchini (excellent). The fish was cooked just right. Outdoor seating had a very festive atmosphere. The restaurant was full but their service was very efficient.

We stumbled upon Castelluccio after our "luxury" hotel dining room looked very uninviting. Not wanting to go too far, we asked about good "neighborhood" places. Several hotel staff members suggested this one. Our happy surprise experience unfolded slowly. We walked into a very friendly, casual, homey restaurant expecting average Italian fare, even though we think most places in Italy serve... More

Busy, energetic restaurant with tables close together, waiters moving back and forth and great atmosphere. Spaghetti ala vongole was particularly good - a taste of Italy. The Risotto con cozze was a little short of mussels but flavoursome. There is also a great array of fresh fish brought to your table so you can select the fish and the preparation.... More

My family and I went back for dinner at the end of our holiday and we certainly felt it was the perfect way of ending a truly lovely time in Sicily. Enrico and his staff were as helpful and welcoming as the first time and the food was at the high standard as the previous time. We tried different dishes... More

We happened upon this place thanks to the handy Tripadvisor app and their restaurants nearby function. It's past the cable car so unless you're staying nearby you could miss it. Not much from the outside, but a gorgeous garden out the back. Some reviewers mentioned mossies, as someone who gets bitten all the time, I didn't have a problem. We... More

We waited for the starters for 30 minutes. We asked for carbonara, one of the waiters said that it is possible to be made and then the other one said that the chef is too busy (there were four occupied tables) Two of us had lasagna,which was not that bad, and I had the typical sicilian pasta with sardines and...
