We first ate here back in 2011 and couldn't wait to come back on this trip to Taormina. Mama and Riccardo/Irene - are still doing a great job and after a hike up to Castelomola that Cannoli is to die for. If you are in Castelomola you need to stop by and eat here.

Oh...my...GOD! If you were smart enough to get to Castelmola, you MUST get to Gallo Cedrone! The family - mama Maria, daughter, son, aunt - greeted us warmly when we got there and pointed out (in heavily accented Italian) the day's specialties. They buy local produce every day and they're known for the freshness of their food. Please get some... More

We are spending our fourth holiday in Castelmola and our first stop will be Gallo Cedrone. This is the friendliest place we have ever been in. The wonderful service, great tasting authentic Sicilian food and the price can only make people return again and again. If you haven't tried it you're missing a real treat!

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...
