Amazing food and great service

It 's a lovely place to dine in Taormina, the place is a bit off the beaten track and you don't see hoards of people passing by, so the atmosphere is very pleasant and even homy. The cuisine is very good, so every time you come back (and you do) you want to try something new. My personal favorite... read more

the number of positive reviews for this are really making me question the validity of tripadvisor reviews. I just cannot see how so many people rated this so highly. The food was poor, the service was poor and the location very average. Ordered muscles and clams for starter. No clams, muscles were lukewarm at best and the broth almost tasteless.... More

Found this place in a side street in the centre of town and had just the best meal. The antipasto is a delight with nothing but olive oil in it. The dessert sampler was to die for and you didn't leave feeling overstuffed. Great service and wine recommendations as well. If you have one meal in taormina, eat here.

The staff at the Trattoria is very friendly and welcomes you with a smile and provides a welcome drink and a Bruschetta with the menu. The selection of both seafood and meat is excellent and the house specials are fantastic! Also the dessert menu has a wide selection and the Cannolo is great(and very big, enough for two, to share).... More

We tried Don Ciccio based on TA reviews, and it lived up to my high expectation. The modest structure houses the kitchen. Almost all the seating is on a lovely patio. The staff is sincere and helpful. My meal was one of the best I have had in a long time. My meal was simple: grilled sea bass (but not... More

Great little restaurant with fresh local food nicely prepared when we fancied a break from the raft of restaurants on Cosa Umberto promising "fine dining". Staff are friendly and food and wine are reasonably priced. Only downside being the tables on the terrace outside were very close together and cramped.

Dined here twice in 2012 and enjoyed our evening dinner on both occasions so decided go back on our recent trip to Taormina - we weren't disappointed. The food was lovely with good choice of wines and good service. The trattoria is located to the back right of the square with the church & fountain in a quiet street but... More

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
