We got there around 1-2 for lunch, think they had just open up- They started by serving a class of Prosecco, and bruschetta that was very tasty. The best dish we had was the gnocchi pesto. It was the best gnocchi i have ever tasted, and the spaghetti with seafood had so much flavor - i was so happy. I... More

We tried dinner in this well- recommended restaurant and found it very disappointing. We sat outside on a warm night behind the plastic curtains in what is likely to be a windy street. My Mellanzana alla Parmigana was not even warmed through and the stew described as being long-cooked in red wine, herbs and tomatoes was still rather tough and... More

Having previously give Don Ciccio, a 5star review, had been really looking forward to returning here. Staff were nice and friendly, and we were each given what we presumed were complimentary glass of proseco, just as we took our seats. Food was good, although have definitely had nicer meals here on previous visits. When we got our bill we realised... More

We dined here on our first and last night in Taormina. Both times, we ate many things which were amazing, but our definite favorite was the homemade Pasta alla Norma. I honestly don't think I have ever tasted such a good pasta and if I could, I would eat Don Ciccio's version of it every single day, it was that... More

The location is nice. We ate fish, both first and second dishes. The food was good but nothing really special.

I have titled this review Hidden Gem as the Trattoria Don Ciccio isn't on the main road through the centre of Taormina but off it and we only found it by having a wonder, if you see a bar called Billy & Billy follow the round to left of the bar and you can't miss it It really is a... More

We instinctively knew this would be a good place to eat and were not proved wrong. The staff are friendly and profficient, the food beautifully presented and the little touches like complimentary Prosecco and bruschetta make the modest 'Cover Charge' of E2.50 a small price to pay. I heartily recommend the slow-roasted knuckle of pork. This restaurant is a lovely... More

A week in different parts of Italy and this place served the best pasta yet. I ordered a plate not on the menu and was made to perfection. Also liked it is little off the main street where it can get too noisy and crowded for lunch.

The wait staff at don Ciccio and the best. They are proffesstpsional, warm and welcoming, gracious, and aren't afraid to give suggestions. The food is fresh, very tasty and simply, and simply out of this world delicious. When you go there ask which dishes are the chefs favorites. Also have the melanzanie parmigiana.?...... This dish I'd out if this world... More
