We tried seven restaurants during our week, this was one of the best. Very attractive price/quality. Inside youthful modern athmosphere with interesting musical choices. Outside seating with more traditional mediterranean setting. Share sicilian plate (9€) with your partner, well balanced selection of warm and cold components. Exellent food and service.

Visited early evening for a meal of 2 courses, arancini excellent, grilled fish good, but how do you eat a prawn in shell without a finger bowl? Just a detail but worth the owner Christine thinking about. Good food in a pleasant environment.

Want to taste the best food in Taormina? Walk along the main street until Piazza de Duomo and find a very short street in the direction of the sea. The food is prepared in place and d e l i c i o u s!!! What I recommend is the unpronouncable schiacchiata, but there are some pictures to help you... More

We went to Da Cristina craving pizza and were disappointed when they only had pizza al taglio that wasn't amazing. The main pic is a bit misleading. Nice location right by the duomo and friendly staff though.

a Sicilian grandmother orders her pasta as we wait behind her in line. if she does take out here, it must be good and it was excellent. take the time to walk to the back to the take out counter. order a "arincini", sit and wait as they make it fresh. listen to the banter amongst the staff (I do...

In the piazza of the Cathedral, this place offers slices of a wide range of pizzas, as well as arancini and panini all for competitive prices. Drinks are also served and there are places to sit. There is also a restaurant area for those interested (although the menu and prices are different). Fortunately, I arrived before a glut of people... More

The place does not look great though the staff is super friendly and the food at the take away is Incredible. I got the best arancini on the island! Definitely a good finger food stop.

its more fast food, for take away. But the aranchino was really good! And the price is very good for Taormina (aranchino was 2,5 eur) There is also a restaurant next to fast food (same name so I think same owner :), but we didnt try it.

We ate Da Cristina in the middle of Taormina and we have tasted the best arancini and schiacciatine of Taormina. The quality of food was excellent and the price is very cheap (it is a rarity in Toarmina). Da Cristina is located not too far from the cathedral.
