We came into this restaurant without high expectations since we came got in around 3:20 p.m. We got some parmigiana and chips with a bottle of water and coke, total 50$ The parmigiana was badly heated since there were parts still cold and the chips were not hand cut(not Sicilian style that's for sure) Based on the prices of the...

Il Ciclope is a must visit at a very reasonable price in the heart of Taormina (Corso Umberto). The Seafood Zuppe I had was beautiful, the best seafood I've ever had and the steak my mother had was also excellent. The restaurant's interior is cosy and charming and the best thing I would say about Il Ciclope is how friendly... More

My 13 year old son refers to this restaurant as the "best pizza in the universe". Being a party of 10 was no problem, we were seated promptly and everyone enjoyed their dish that came out very quickly.

Good service and very tasty dinner of a large plate of bolognese pasta and salad. Enjoyed sipping on our wine, while people-watching.

This was a nice surprise in the mid of the pedestrian area(typical tourist area); we didn't expect that good food. There are three pages starter, various types of pasta, seafood etc. the waiters are very nice and speaking good English. The glass of wine was served from quality bottle of wine (not some lower quality house-wine).

This place looks lovely from the outside and is very conveniently placed. I ordered parmigiana which , my bet is, was a microwaved dish. I found a huge piece of plastic bag in it, in which I suppose dish was packed in. For main I did not get the dish I ordered ( swordfish penne)but something different( mussels as clams... More

We dined here on recent holidays to Sicily, we spent 5nights in taormina. We dined with a young child. The food was gorgeous, clean plates all around. We usually like to dine somewhere different each night, however we really liked this place and really wanted to go back before we left taormina. However on our last night we saw another... More

This was one of the lowest priced options on the main strip through Taormina, but it's quality was first class. Great fresh ingredients and friendly service. One of our better meals during the week there.

We had some fresh pasta dishes which appeared very quickly and were not especially tasty. To be honest no better than something we would knock up at home for a quick and easy meal in a rush mid-week. Beers are very expensive - more so than other restaurants we have eaten at in Taormina. Our experience seems similar to others... More
