Lovely pizza take away style, some seats available. Friendly service. In the evening it's crazy crowded, go for lunch instead.

10m from the piazza. It has both fastfood and restaurant. The food is delicious and is affordable. Arancini and cannole is the best here. You can have buffet antipasti here for 10€. Worth the visit!

The best Arancini I have ever had in Italy by far. It at the end of town. The food is wonderful. It's a must go to if your in Taromina. The gnocchi were great and the canoli blew my mind. Multo multo buno.

We ate at the pizza shop not the restaurant. Everything was amazing, staff was friendly, helpful and answered all of our questions. When my husband dropped his pizza they replaced it for free. Cheap and delicious!

Situated in Piazza del Duomo, da Cristina restaurant is perhaps the most pleasant one and serves excellent food. The waiters are extremely nice and prompt. The prices were acceptable, especially for the great central location, and all of the dishes that we tried were very good, from traditional Sicilian food (Arancini, Pistachio Gnocchi, Gnocchi Sorrentina, Sicilian starters, Paste ala Norma)...
