We visited this take away after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We were not disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed our midday snack which was good value for money. You can stand or sit at the few tables and benches outside. There is also a table and chairs inside. On our first visit we both had arancini which were delicious! We... More

Not the best pizza in Italy or anything exciting like that, but more than adequate, tasty slices of pizza at just €2/slice with friendly service and you can sit on the steps of the fountain to eat it.

We looked at this pizzeria because it was so highly rated here but it's a takeaway really! A couple of high bar type tables and a few high stools don't make a restaurant. They may do great pizzas.....

If you're looking for some authentic food for take away or a quick bite, go to Da Cristina. Try the arancini (a typical Sicilian ball of rice, meat, and cheese). They're some of the best I've had, and I've tried them in Palermo, Catania, Venice, Hartford and Boston. The 'burro' variety they have here is particularly good. The pizza is... More

I knew that I had chosen the right place for my arancini when I saw local construction workers going in to order their lunch too. The Arancini were hot and fresh and absolutely delicious. We had the traditional and the pistachio.

We were delighted with the food and service at Da Cristina. Nothing fancy, limited seating but personable young men running the place and the best pizza and arancini of our trip.

Were wandering about in Taormina in the afternoon and since we were a bit Hungry and would be eating later that night we stopped for a quick snack. The place is a bit off the way in the duomo square. The food is genuine, preparation is done there in front of you and they taste really great. The price was... More

We were in Taormina on our honeymoon trip and as we walked by this place we could feel wondeful aromas calling us to stop by, and we did. Inside there was true Sicilian cousine: arancini with sauce, with butter, with pistachio and different kinds of pizza, focaccia-Italian bread with olives, tomatoes... It was more than enough to take one arancino... More
