This restaurant serves homecooked food, which is good and more than enough even for the very hungry traveller. The Fennel - Provolone sausages, made bij mamma Maria herself, are to die for. Spectacular view on Etna, especially during dinner when the light changes every few minutes. Well worth the 15 minutens drive from Taormina!!! Go by car or take the... More

We happened upon Gallo Cedrone our first night in Castlemola. The view of Mt Etna from the terrace is amazing and is what initially drew us to sit down. The bruschetta is amazing, full of flavor and toasted to perfection. We enjoyed pizza, fresh tomato/onion salad, Mama Maria's stuffed eggplant, homemade sausages and Penne Arriabbiata (spicy and delicious!). The family... More

This is a super casual, warm family-run restaurant off the beaten path that serves very good homestyle food! We started with simple appetizers of super fresh tomatoes and onions. Bruschetta was also served along with delicious, homemade bread baked by Mama Maria. We ordered two pastas: Bolognese and Carbonara and both were very good, cooked perfectly al dente. They also...

This is a family run restaurant with good prices and delicious simple Sicilian food, Mamma is always there to make sure everything runs smoothly. All the items we had were great, we were treated good and was given a taste of their delicious almond wine on... More

We ate here once and the food was awful as was the service. There was a horrible smell from the kitchen and the bruschetta was soaked in oil you just couldn't eat it. A couple next to us sent their dinner back and considering the standard of food we had ate locally we were really surprised and worried, as soon... More

Lovely restaurant and staff. Enormous, filling pizza. Fresh salads and gorgeous bruschetta. Don't let the unassuming outside put you off. We sat on the terrace with a beautiful view of Etna. Perfecto!

To be honest the food here is of a really low quality. In comparison to every other restaraunt we had visited in Sicily this doesn't even come close. The waiter argued with his brother in Italian when we arrived, not in a characterful Italian way but awkwardly, to the point were it became uncomfortable. There was a stale smell from... More

Definitely the best lasagne we've eaten and very delicious bruschetta for free. Friendly staff! Went there twice and will go again if we ever travel to Sicily and Castelmola again.
