Excellent food and service

Great salted fish and pasta dishes! Owners treated us like family. Wine and limoncello was terrific! Can't wait to return soon! We ate here several times and food was always great!

I ate at this restaurant several times while in Taormina and the food was great! The owners treated us like family. The local fish baked in salt was my favorite dish but everything I had was delicious! The atmosphere is casual and comforting too! This is a must stop for dinner in Taormina!!!! They also have great wines and limoncello.... More

Having strolled past this restaurant the previous night and headed to the beac for supper we decided to try it on our second evening in Mazzaro. We were not disappointed, the owner was charming, he knew his menu and explained some of the slightly dodgy translations too. I had a tasty octopus salad and my husband had freshly cooked anchovies... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant. My husband and I were on our honeymoon for a month in Italy and this was one of the Top 3 meals we enjoyed. From the wine to our appetizers, first course to dessert, it was delectable. My first time trying swordfish which was perfectly sauced with tomato sauce, olive oil lemon and basil. My... More

Recommended by hotel receptionist. We expected an al dente pasta and fresh Sicilian seafood, but she didn't offer these that evening.

Ate at Castelluccio twice during a five night stay in Mazarro, would have dined here every night had we found in sooner! This is a busy ristorante, but the staff still manage to provide a friendly, attentive, quality service. The food is superb, fantastic flavours and well presented. If you like fish this is the place to eat, but leave... More

We had some salads to start with and then pizza and seafood pasta. It feels like you're eating in a garden, it was lovely. The waiters were nice, we really enjoyed the local food and wine. It's a nice place to go if you're staying in a hotel nearby

Pretty standard fare for this region. We had lobster pasta for the three of us, bruschetta, shared a salad and a liter of house wine. Our tab was 102 Euros. Pretty good, nothing special.

Actually, I m in the nearest hotel now. Yesterday I was in this restaurant after recommendation from our reception in 5-star hotel. In the evening I was satisfied. Grilled prawns and starters were good, good wine as well and the restaurant was full. But, I have gone today for lunch. The marinated fish (rather expensive dish , 16€) was aufull,... More
