What a meal! Great food great value and a fantastic little find. €66 for Antipasti, Lamb, Seafood Spaghetti, Lemon Sorbie, coffee, Water and 1/2 Ltr of House Red. The whole meal was relaxed and enjoyable, unlike some places where your rushed in and out, with great staff that are only there when needed as if by magic. We'll definitely be... More

Another accidental find on our holiday in Taormina. We were caught in a sudden downpour and had to make an emergency umbrella purchase. Difficult for the two of us to stay dry so we headed for the nearest restaurant and what a find this was! Wonderful home cooking and a great family atmosphere. Got a lovely surprise when our waitress... More

We visited this restaurant because it was rated so highly on TA and we weren't disappointed. The location was peaceful, the service was excellent, and the food was divine. We shared the antipasto starter, then had the pasta with sardines and the seafood risotto. One shared tiramisu to finish. Everything was superb, but the fresh seafood in the risotto was... More

Visited this restaurant due to the amazing reviews on tripadvisor; and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and really tasty. A great selection of fish dishes, meats and pasta. Fantastic complementary glass of prosecco and bruschetta on arrival which still meant it was cheaper than most other restaurants in the area for table charge. The overall value of... More

Don Ciccio came recommended by a local who eats there 3 times a week. We went on our fourth evening - the food and service were incredible. We've eaten in quite a few of the top rated restaurants in Taormina, and this was definitely the best. Normally never go back to the same restaurant twice, but food was so good... More
