I consider the owner my friend and a loyal individual. His family business is top notch and he is dedicated to be the best. The staff works extremely hard and they make sure there customers are taken care of. I feel blessed to have met them and have dinner every time I went there.

Fantastic restaurant with excellent service. We chose the tagliatelle with red prawns and truffle and it is the best truffle pasta I have ever had. Cooked fresh and to absolute perfection, this spot is one to not be missed. Glad I found it mid stay in Taormina as we are definitely coming back!

Where to begin? Been there 3 times now and tonight is our last as we fly out tomorrow.Fantastic food, the friendliest most welcoming staff ever. Carlo one of the waiters has become a friend and he is such a great personality nothing is too much trouble, you want to share a meal no problem, don’t want a full bottle of wine then get a glass. His knowledge of the dishes is amazing, I could go on and on but!!! Don’t forget to book, it’s is so popular it’s always full,

We had tried ( unsuccessfully) the previous evening to get a table but decided to try again. So glad we did. A large and varied wine list with many Sicilian vineyards as well as other nations, no one trick pony here. I started with the most delicious spaghetti vongole I’ve ever experienced. The sauce was exquisite and it was as well they supplied adequate bread to soak it up! ( locally supplied salt infused bread too) I chose a special of baked salted sea bass with zucchini. If I was to be critical, the sea bass was too soft but the accompanying prawns made up for this. My partner had a steak with a wonderful Gorgonzola sauce, not unusual for this part of Sicily but by far the best we’ve tried. All finished off with a sweet of home made canole that was so memorable I can taste them as I type. Should you find yourself in Taormina, check it out. Salut !

At the end of our week in Taormina and this was our favourite experience from complimentary prosecco whilst waiting for our table to be ready to complimentary limoncello at the end and excellent food, wine and service in between. Recommend booking as turning people away without a reservation.

This family run restaurant prides itself on great hospitality, service, wine and quality food. Despite being in a popular tourist location, the prices are fair and the quality isn't compromised. Our group of four ordered a variety of entrees ranging from pasta dishes to veal to fish. All were very well-prepared and as tasty as we had hoped. The only negatives, and certainly not deal breakers, were an appetizer of fried calamari and two desserts. The serving of calamari just looked smaller than what we saw coming out and served at nearby tables, and although the waiter sold us on the tiramisu being the best in town, it was hardly that. To be honest, as a veteran tiramisu consumer, this was rather pedestrian. The cassata cake was solid, but we thought it was rather small. I give them a solid 4 based on the entrees, the local vibe and the service.

We arrived in Taormina late at 11pm and didn’t think we’d find anywhere to eat… thankfully we walked past here…it was still busy and still serving. Also seemed to be popular with locals, always a good sign! The food was delicious, as was the house red wine. Perfect start to our long weekend in Taormina. Highly recommend.

Authentic, friendly and tasty. We stayed at the hotel pretty much next door so a little reluctant but having read the reviews we chanced it. Amazing experience, clearly lots of regulars. Great wine recommendation etna White. 2 fabulous pasta dishes, very friendly service. The ‘Sicilian Pole’ with ‘skin like mozarella’ was superb

The best evening meal we had during our stay in Taormina. Both food and service were very satisfactory. The only thing that detracted from our experience was being seated on the upper terrace on a very windy night with the plastic shades pulled down and flapping in the wind. It became so uncomforable that we left without ordering dessert or coffee.

This restaurant has been running for over 70 years and you can tell that they are confident in what they serve. There were lots of locals and honestly the food and the service were excellent. The artichoke salad was extremely tasty.

Came here in early March which means it was fairly quiet. So much the better for us. Don't know what it is but every restaurant we go to was better than the night before and Da Nino's is no different. It's not a fancy or quirky restaurant by any means but it serves really good food. We had classics like eggplant parm, pasta bologna's, pasta with red shrimp and truffle, all perfectly prepared. we will be here for a while and considering a second visit to Da Nino

Upon arrival at Taormina I was looking to grab some lunch close to my hotel (Ariston). This was the closest place. I ordered Tagliatelle de Tartuffe (black truffle), which I’d watched a waiter toss in a giant Parmigiano cheese wheel right in front of me just day before, in Catania. The other waiter had then grated the truffles on top – all this in front of the patrons. Naturally, and considering Trattoria da Nino seemed posher than the Catania eatery, I was expecting more of the same. None of that happened: no cheese wheel and no truffles. The dish was served on a plate already with truffles on top and swimming in butter. I think part of the appeal of this particular dish is its careful preparation right before your eyes. At €20.- it was disappointing. Well, yes, Taormina is expensive, I hear you’re saying. Not necessarily though. The following day I discovered other places – even by the beach - which were not more expensive than Catania at all. And did I mention the portion at da Nino was tiny?
