Great food

Lovely welcome prosecco and bruschetta followed by delicious melanzane parmigiano and caponata. The pasta was delicious also which made an oustanding veggie dinner

We had dinner here during our stay in Taormina. It's in a great location right next to the Duoma plazza but just far enough away to be quite and charming. They greet you with complimentary bruscetta and proseco - wonderful! Dinner was great especially the swordfish and ravioli. It's reasonably priced and the service was attentive and welcoming.

Great, friendly service, and delicious food. Felt very welcome on arrival when given a complimentary glass of Prosecco and some bruschetta. I had a spaghetti dish followed by swordfish - and both courses were full of flavour. There was a good selection of wine which, given the location, was reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend!

A cracking restaurant! There were 5 of us and all the dishes - fish, meat, pasta - were well done, with good ingredients, taste and presentation. For mains, I can recommend the tuna Sicilian style - cooked in red onion with chocolate later added. The savoury and sweet combination really works well with the perfectly cooked moist tuna. The staff... More

Taormina is super nice. Sitting at a table outside on a hot summer night, free riding the live folk music that was being offered to a nearby table, gave our dinner a special charm. However, the highest point was the Maccheroni all Norma, simply superb. My friends and family also enjoyed their dishes. A couple of glasses of Nero d'... More

We dined at several restaurants during our week in Taormina and this was the restaurant we returned to for our last night. On arrival we were given complimentary prosecco and bruschetta. The entire meal was good quality and the service was excellent with friendly waiters. Be aware that the portions are quite large, so we never managed three courses! Overall,... More

Most of the food we tried in Sicily was very good. Then on day we had one really bad meal, a touristy spot with and excellent view and horrible food, beware of those places. We decided to start using trip advisor to check up on what's good. This place was rated very well so we tried it. We were not... More

"Trattoria Don Ciccio" is one of the best restaurants that I went in Taormina! I would definitely suggest it if you want to have real Italian- Sicilian food. Delicious dishes served in big proportions. Pastas are amazing with much sauce and ingredients. Restaurant's wine options are wide. The ambiance is great, a cosy secret corner at the heart of Taormina.... More

When a warm welcome is combined with a chilled glass of prosecco then you know you've chosen wisely. When the service is efficient and the food outstanding then you start to glow inside. When the bill comes with a glass of Limoncello and it's amazing good value then all you can do is go on tripadvisor and share your experience.... More
