We were in front of the restaurant when we decided to make a reservation for that night. When we asked the person to note our names he said, now I know you, I am Nino, you come and Imhave a table for you.. We came back and we were served by a waiter with strong attitude. We like it. Very... More

Nino's Trattoria is located within a few metres of the top of the cable car in Via Pirandello. There are no clients or customers at Nino's Restaurant, only honoured guests. Over a number of visits to Taormina - always a pleasure - we have visited Nino's many times. We have visited other local restaurants too but, somehow, we always find... More

Visited this restaurant twice during our recent visit to Taormina. We thoroughly enjoyed both eating experiences. The food was superb, well presented with daily specials as well as the normal menu. The owner is a perfect host and nothing is too much trouble. He really went out of his way to ensure his guests enjoyed their visit. The service was... More

This restaurant became our favourite one in Taormina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was freshly cooked, beautifully prepared and presented, as well as being very tasty. It was also good value for money I would recommend the Trattoria Nino .

We ended up eating at Nino's 5 times!! The food is outstanding. Pasta pomodoro which some may think as too pedestrian to order is elevated to heights not usually experienced. The ingredients are so fresh and locally sourced for all his dishes. The anchovy dish is fabulous as is the bistecca. I couldn't find anything on the menu I didn't... More

Worth the trip to Taormina, this small restaurant is nestled into mountainside. Great pasta, beautiful calamari and make sure you don't miss the mussels. Not cheap but still reasonable value. Wine from €20/bottle. Total meal was about €35/head. Staff have a good command of English making up for my Italian.

If we didn't have three nights of wedding festivities we may have gone to Nino's 7 times in 7 days. We stumbled across Nino's in the street of our hotel. The second day we were in Taormina we thought we' give it a go for dinner. 10 of us traversed the menu with outstanding shared entrees of eggplant parmigiana, tuna... More
