Just off the main street it's well worth tracking down this trattoria. Varied menu (lamb shank, chicken etc as well as the usual pasta and fish) the home made pasta was fantastic, complimentary prosecco and bruschetta, excellent service, great wine and decent value. The restaurants on the main street are fine, much less of a tourist trap than in many... More

Such a lovely, friendly place to eat in the heart of Taormina! Prosecco and bruschetta on arrival, good food, excellent service-so enjoyable that we ate there three times in a week!

We read the reviews like others and went and found this restaurant and so glad we did. Out of the way and not a lot of scenery but the ambience makes up for it. The staff are very friendly and tell you all about the menu if asked and the waiter help us with the type of wine I was... More

Got a prosecco and bruschetta for free. The spaghetti Vongole and scoglio were very good. As desert we had a quarter pineapple, which was a little bit overpriced. I would recommend this place.

We enjoyed our lunch outside. Very good Sicilian cuisine at good prices. A little out of the way so it is not very crowded. We went here because of the reviews and were not disappointed.

Searched the Don Ciccio out due to the reviews on Tripadvisor(thanks fellow contributors, it's the reviews rather than the overall scores that tell the true story) and was not let down. Lovely little trattoria down a side street just behind the fountain of the Piazza Duomo. Not the cheapest, a full course meal with wine iis going to be in... More

Loved the pasta dishes at this great little restaurant. Friendly staff, fast service, nice ambience. Can't ask for more. Every dish we tried was amazing. Solid free WiFi too - which was useful.

The service was great, typical Sicilian meals, simple but extremely good and fresh. Looks like a family restaurant, aside from the busy Taormina main touristic street.

Prior to our stay in Taormina, we looked at reviews on Trip advisor and made a list of recommended restaurants to eat. We tried this one and it was our favourite of all of them so we returned there again on our last night. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the menu choice was good. We couldn't fault the...
