If you want a slice of Italian life on a budget then this is the place to go - they have a little of all the italian fast food, a good selection of pizza and not to mention the Aracini - the fast food invention of Sicily - a must have (at least once) whilst visiting Taormina. You can eat... More

If you like to experience the joy of ignorant Sicilians, go to Da Christina. Sicilians do not have an understanding of how "taking a number" works. If you have #14 and they are calling to get the order of #9, it doesnt matter. They still feel a need to push and cram in and stampede to the counter. Its funny... More

We were recommended to visit Da Cristina's to try their arancini and their pizza by some new friends, and we weren't disappointed! Fabuloso on both counts. Lovely homemade food and somewhere not to be missed by anyone that wants to try the best takeaway or eat in pizza in Taormina.

This place is amazing. When we entered we didn't know what to order because everything looked so delicious. We decided to order pasta alla norma, because we were told to eat it in Taormina. The best pasta I ever had. So sorry we didn't try arancini and pizza but we were in Taormina only for one day and after pasta... More

I went to Taormina with three Italians so food standards were high... We found this place (it was conveniently at the end of the road where we were staying) and tried the arancini which everyone raves over. We weren't dissapointed, they were so delicious...full of flavour and big! We then went back for more and decided to try the other... More

I can't comment on anything else from Da Cristina as I only had the arancini! They were by far the best that I have ever had in Italy, perhaps that's because it was my first time in Sicily and this is how they are supposed to be made?! They are delicious and a must!!

Having tried arancini on a previous trip I was eager to try again. We were recommended to this place by another restaurant who did not have it on their own menu. It is small - only a few tables to sit at. -Most people buy to take away. We had the spinach and mozarella arancini and I can't sing its... More
