This dish I'd out if this world... More

We ate here on recommendation of our tour driver. It's a little quaint trattoria where some local Italians eat. That's always a good sign. We only had main courses, seafood pasta which had the biggest langoustine and was tasty, and a mushroom risotto. Great dish and very filling. Service was good, food was good. We'd come back for a quick... More

One of the best dinner of my life! Amazing food and service! As soon as we arrived they offered us a glass of prosecco and a bruschetta. I've ordered an organic wine, DOC, which was really nice! My friend and I really wanted to eat everything from the menu', so we decided to share few plates. The ravioli with ricotta... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the driver of our transfer from Catania airport. 14 of us were over for the wedding of our son and we very quickly found out that you need to book the restaurants for that number in advance. We tried a number of restaurants around Taormina and the food was generally good but after... More

Book to be sure you get a table outside or you might find yourself trapped behind plastic sheets. But, don't let the lack of frills put you off. This place is packed with atmosphere and offers good Sicilian fare at a reasonable rate. It is just off the Piazza Duomo. We are returning.

I visited Don Ciccio whilst on a family holiday to Taormina in August. We stayed in Taormina for 10 days and during that time. We visited this restaurant 3 times such was the level of service and quality of the food. We always seemed to arrive at the right time to get a table immediately but it didn't take long... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant. The outdoor atmosphere was inviting. The staff were bringing out more tables to accommodate everyone. The menu was in four languages which is very helpful but the format was confusing. The mussels were exceptional. It is definitely a place to go.

Found this place by chance and booked a table. Friendly helpful staff who quickly seated us offering terrace, indoors or patio tables. Started with a small glass of prosecco and bruschetta on the house. The menu is extensive and offers advice for diners who maybe gluten intolerant or allergic to nuts/fish. The food was excellent I had calamari which was... More
