I didn't want to go to Il Ciclope because I thought it was too pricey, however most places in Taormina are closed in February so we bit the bullet and went in. The food was very pleasant; we both chose fairly inexpensive meals from the pasta menu and only had a glass of wine as the bottles were extortionate (you... More

Restaurant looks amazing, checkered tablecloths,... pizza was perfect, tasty 😋. Only what I didn't like was how staff treating costumers, they are very unfriendly

We read some poor reviews of this restaurant but seeing as places open in the winter are tough to find we decided to try it out. The service was great and the food was as well. My wife and I both had breaded chicken and pasta which was very delicious. Tasted fresh and cooked thoroughly. Pretty reasonable prices as well.... More

We visited in February, so it was a little quiet, which meant we thought an adult lunchtime group of 6 would be most welcome, but we found the waitress who seated us and served us to be anything but welcoming, we had to ask for the pizza menu, as we were only offered a "standard" meal menu, which was noticeably...

The Interbus orario had lied to us, and we had to buy train tickets and then hike up the mountain from the train station to our hotel. Exhausted, we stopped at Il Ciclope on the way back. I'd been wanting to try it out, and Il Ciclope was exactly what we needed. The food was amazing, and the staff was... More

I ate at this restaurant 4 times when I was in Taormina and loved it! I travel a lot and am quite a foodie. So, it has to really be worth it for me to pay a second visit. They had a nice outdoor seating area. The food was really impressive! It was my perfect Sicilian dining experience. The service... More

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.
