This trattoria was a very welcome difference from all the other tourist traps around Taormina. Great efficient and knowledgeable staff. The food was perfect. Fresh, well cooked and delicious. The housewine was simply delicious and very reasonably priced. I advise anyone to go here at least once.

A great choice for dinner! We came as a family of 3 and we highly recommend the restaurant for anyone! Great service all the time with amazing food. However, we do recommend coming before 19:00 as it will be hard to get a table after that time unless you made a reservation. The desserts were not as spot on as... More

We ate here after trying several other establishments and were really delighted. Everything written about this restaurant is true. Family run with love and care the atmosphere is buzzy, the staff attentive and genuinely kind and the ambience what we look for in a trattoria. The place was full to the brim with several people turned away so do book!... More

Spent two nights in Taormina in September and both nights we ended up here for dinner (on the recommendation of our hotel). Loved it! Had the garlic, oil, and chilli pasta both nights he he. Also had the antipasto platter which was amazing on it's own! Service was friendly and welcoming and the place was always full!

A good choice of dishes with plenty of choices of fish, and a range of seasonal specials. Friendly staff and modern feel inside make it a comfortable place to eat. We went 3 nights running!

The restaurant has a great menu selection - The fish and pasta dishes were all absolutely breathtaking! Their house wine is divine. The experience was so great that we returned on our last night visiting Taormina. We will surely be back!

A recommendation from our hotel but, nothing was left to chance, a reservation was made, we were late but they kept our table despite being full! The attention to our every need was first class, my food was the owners choice as was the wine and the dessert and that wine and the recommendations were all first class, nothing too... More

The fish and seafood in general is quite expensive in Taormina. Trattoria da Nino is the place where you can find a perfect price and quality. I loved carpaccio di tuna, spaghetti con vongole. It is good to book in advance for dinner.
