To understand a level of our satisfaction you just need to know that we have had 3 out 5 our lunches in Taormina. Big plate of raw sea food and pasta with truffles and shrimps are very recommended. Special thanks for the size of prosecco...and wine by glasses - it’s almost double compared to usual.More

The food is genuine, generous and very tasty, the price is very correct - better than in the Main Street of Taormina - and the staff is super friendly and wants to make you happy. We’ve eaten there 4 times during our stay and enjoyed...every single culinary experience. Grazie mile. Anna and AlainMore

Beautiful location with a wonderful view over the sea. Service is quick and the waiters were all extremely helpful. The food is extremely good with prices in line with the rest of the restaurants in town.

...we went here twice in four days! We were staying at a hotel down the road and looking for an evening meal. Fortunately, they could give us a table for 2. Great fish starter (tune and sardines) and veal for mains. We enjoyed it so...much, we booked again for the Friday night. Sat next to a German couple who had been coming for over 30 years. The Friday meal was exceptional. Greeted by the staff as long lost friends. The owner/patron suggested that my wife had catch of the day. The older (sorry) waiter then filleted the fish with a plate! Exceptional skill! The only downside was having to leave as we were travelling to Lipari the next day1More

The steaks were absolutely amazing, far superior to anything we’d experienced throughout our week in Taormina. Staff were all fantastic and very accommodating as we were a group of 8. Only downside was it took us until our last night to find this place!

So as one who has traveled almost all over the island and as many as 50 different restaurants, I have found the worst at last, - Cold and hostile service on the part of the owner - Food that arrived cold - Simply not tasty...dishes and tasteless and lifeless. - Dry bread thrown on the table. All this and the owner walks around with his nose up as if he got Michelin. Poor and ridiculous place And most importantly the imaginary price they charged for a plate of pasta Under the nickname "special dish" I got half-cooked pasta with mushroom sauce and wine, tasteless, one of the worst dishes I have eaten and traveled almost all over the world For this poor dish he took no less than 20 Euros !!!!!! robber.. So do yourself a favor and go to a restaurant that respects itself and you.More

It’s 9 years since my last visit to this restaurant, back then it was always my favourite place to eat. My mother and I returned to Taormina and back to Da Nino’s, we both agreed we ate very well all week however Da Nino’s was...by far our best experience. I had Shrimp Cocktail followed by the Veal in Marsala sauce both were delicious. My Mum had Seafood Salad followed by Fillet Steak with Gorgonzola sauce she said both were really good. We both finished our meal with Tiramisu which was by far the best we had all week. Service was efficient and friendly. Thanks all for the best dining out experience of our holiday.More

My husband I went for dinner last night. We have been in Sicily now for 3 weeks traveling the whole island. By far this was the best meal we had. It was delicious food from beginning to end. We had the shrimp cocktail, caponata, veal...marsala, filet with peppercorn and cream sauce and finished with pana cota. We both have eaten caponata everywhere since every place has their version but this was the best one so far! The filet was scrumptious. The best quality meat and wonderful tasting sauce. Even though the veal was good my husband admitted my choice was better. Definitely you need a reservation, especially a weekend night, to ensure your place! Well worth the money.More

Traditional local restaurant - good food and wine but nothing out of the ordinary. We found it to be relatively expensive compared to some of the other smaller trattoria in Taormina.

We came here reccomended by a local resident. Premise - we have been staying in Taormina for a week so have tried about every restaurant in town! The food is good, nothing spectacular. We travel a lot so had to give it just three stars...mainly to the service. There were two waiters, rather young and amateurish, and we felt treated like typical tourists. I understand Italian so could see that you are just a number here. Would not go back nor recommend. The best restaurant in Taormina is Tiramisu.More

If you are looking for a five star meal with delicious food, genuine hospitality and great service look no further than Trattoria da Nino. We ate here three times during our stay in Taormina and each time couldn’t fault the food and service. Please have...the truffle linguine or seafood pasta, it is amazing and some of the best pasta we have ever eaten and believe me we are fussy! Only a short walk from the Porta Messina and the cable car it’s easy to find. Owned by a wonderful local family and staffed by some of the friendliest and most genuine wait staff we have come across, it was a great experience. We will certainly return. Grazie mille Gianluca and tutti il tuo staff.More
