Pasta with parmigianni sauce was excellent and so home made tiramisu. In fact the best ı have ever had. House wine was also very good. We went twice in 4 days.:)

Simply put...fantastico! Location is excellent, quality and choice of food is beyond reproach, but what separates this trattoria from it's peers is the level service. Two people taking orders and serving all night and we felt as though we were the only couple in the restaurant, such was the quality of service. I would certainly recommend trying here.

Based on TripAdvisor I convinced my daughter to eat at Trattoria Don Ciccio. It was a five minute walk from the hotel just below the small Piazza del Duomo (go around the fountain in the plaza and down the hill a bit). It was a little cool in May, so we sat inside. We had a terrific meal: I had... More

We found this place on the off chance and decided to try it after walking past the busier parts of town having staff trying to persuade us to eat at their restaurants. What followed was fantastic, friendly service, a warm and rustic rustic decor and atmosphere and the food was simple yet packed full of flavour. They offered a wine... More

We had a fantastic lunch and later on we chose to go back for dinner at this wonderful genuine Sicilian restaurant. The food was excellenta aswell as the wine and service. The restaurant is located in a peaceful area, away from the crowd. We all tried different dishes and we recommend all of them. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

From complimentary Olive tapenade and bruschetta and glass of presecco to fresh made pasta it was really delicious and very reasonable . We returned again during the week as the food we had in...

We had the seafood pastas and we loved it. The dessert - semifreddo pistachio was good too. The price is very good in this setting and the quality of the food. The two pastas we had were at 14e and 11e. Staff are friendly and service is good. Tip: go early or reserve a table. It's full at 8:30pm tonight.

This small trattoria is located in an area away from the crowds that invade Taormina during the weekend. There are a few other restaurants in the area worth trying, but the service here was absolutely outstanding and the food was really good. For those looking for something new, give a go to their Tuna with chocolate and sweet onions -... More
