I again visited Trattoria Da Nino during my most recent visit to charming Taormina. Nino and Gianluca are naturals at being great hosts and presenting the best of typical Sicilian dishes. Apart from the usual fresh fish and superb salad - always tops! - this time I had a great pasta dish. The 'carciofi and tonno' (artichokes and tuna) sauce... More

Wonderful location on the terrace. We really enjoyed the food. Really excellent house wine sold by the glass, we had white, but people on next table rated v highly the red. Fantastic service.

Had a table on the upstairs verandah. Service was aloof at best. Food ok but nothing special. Ordered white wine and had to ask for it to be put in a chiller. Server was more interested in smoothing up to locals. No desert menu offered. Would not go there again.

Went to this restaurant on our first night in Taormina. The host did his best to find us a table at a busy and full restaurant. We had to wait for a table, but it was worth the wait. The food was delicious. I had the seafood Tagliatelle and my husband had the grilled swordfish. Complimented with a refreshing bottle... More

My small group of four enjoyed wonderful food served by the best restaurant crew. The servers seemed to love their job and their customers. I wonder if they are also owners and/or family? Great experience!

Had this recommended to us It is handy for the cable car station Staff friendly and accomodating We ate there 3 nights out of 4 - mainly passed on the specials which seemed a bit more expensive. Had fresh fish, prawns with pistachios, pasta with truffle, veal escalope marsala, pasta alla norma and a special fish tartare with special oils.... More
