Good food and very inexpensive!

Had shrimp risotto and was very good! Service excellent! I would recommend! The wine list was a little overpriced for what we have been having in Italy!!! A little touristy. They cater to Americans with the type of service that we are used to!

3/5 - good food but disappointing service given place highly recommended by friends (was quite busy but maybe we were just not dressed smartly enough after long day on road)

Trattoria da Nino was recommended to us by our host in Taormina as the best place to taste sea food - so we were looking forward to a nice, delicious dinner. Maybe we expected too much, but it turned out to be a disappointment. From the very beginning the waiter seemed to be in a bad mood and in a... More

Busy small resturant with a mix of customers from local to overseas. We have a starter pasta of gorgonzola and lettuce which sounds unusual but was delicious. It was a bank holiday therefore Taormina was very busy. The main comment was that the manager/owner was abrupt and we felt we were invisible also our glass of wine did not arrive... More

We dined at five different restaurants during our stay in Taormina. All of them were OK but none was exceptional. We tried Da Nino based on other Tripadvisor reviews and the fact that being off the main drag might mean that they had to try harder. The food and service were fine but nothing special. Their presentation was a bit... More

This weekend I had the perfect lunch in this refined 'trattoria'. The service was excellent, very polite and cordial and the staff speak very good English. The food was superb,we ordered a cruditè of fish as a starter followed by pasta dishes, the pappardelle with prawns and truffles I highly recommend. But I suggest to order a good bottle of... More
