We were in Taormina for 10 nights and ate here for 3!!! The food was divine and take some time to get to know the staff... Luka... Hi!! They have real Sicilian charm and are witty, charming and generous. Cannot compliment the wine enough either. Until the next time,,, 💕💕

I found the restaurant via TripAdvisor. The food was fine but it was everything overpriced. Also the service was very bad since the waiter and the owner of the restaurant treated us in a very impolite way by forcing us to leave a soon as possible (not a very nice manner of treating tourists in a very touristic place).

This was our second visit to Taormina. However, despite walking past on most days we never felt inclined to try here. It doesn't look overly exciting at first glance. Having decided to give it go the food more than compensates for the relative lack of ambience. I had pollo diabolical which surprised me. Simply a large succulent chicken with a... More

We have traveled extensively through Italy, but never Taromina. We asked the cabbie where would he eat and he recommended Da Nino. We didnt book but rocked up with a queue outside, so we knew it had to be good. Well the wait was soooo worthwhile. Had such a lovely meal, truly awesome arribatta. Wine good, as was the service...

We had two pasta dishes with excellently cooked al dente and tastefully cooked. The service is impeccable everything served to detail. Two mixed fish dishes bit on the high side considering the portion but would go back again as everything was what we would expect in terms of service and food quality.

Went here twice for dinner during a 2 week stay in Taormina (July/August) and both times it was excellent. Pappardelle special with truffles in particular was to die for. Great seafood starters as well. My daughter even went back a third time with her boyfriend. Manager and staff were very friendly and capable, but the food and wine was the... More

My wife and I ate twice here during our stay in Taormina. The pasta is homemade and served simply. There are specials along with the main menu and the waiter will tell you them at the table. There are quite a few so listen carefully! I had one of the specials of pappardelle with black truffles which was one of... More

Delicious food - I had a very good aubergine pasta dish and my boyfriend a yum steak, but it was disappointing that his steak didn't come with any sides and we had to pay for these in addition. Consequently the bill was more steep than I think it needed to be. Nice views down the coast, but quite stark lighting... More

Its basically a cafe not a trattoria, the only place to sit is on the terrace for the view. Food was very poor, we had grilled fish, which was cold when served, and a shrimp pasta, I found the shells of the shrimps but could not find any of the flesh.
