Lunchtime treat

We literally stumbled into the restaurant as we beat a hasty retreat from one across the road following advice of customers leaving and weren't we pleased. We were greeted by Momma who could not have been more friendly and helpful. She sat down with us at our table and we with our minimal Italian... read more

On a visit to Castelmola with our fantastic guide Ignazio from Sicily with Mario, we reached this typically Sicilian restaurant that we had read such great things about called Gallo Cedrone. This is run by a typically Italian mama called Maria and her two sons Roberto and Riccardo. They immediately made us feel like long lost family members and we... More

Do not hesitate to come here. Home from home cooking in a fab setting. The complimentary bruschetta is taste of things to come. And the house wine is not only very reasonable but really good.

We stopped for a drink and were given the best bruschetta I have ever tasted. It is worth making the trip just to experience this wonderful place. Such nice people.

Visited this restaurant on both of our visits to Castelmola from nearby Taormina. The proprietors are extremely welcoming and are all part of the family. Food is excellent! Proper Italian home cooked food. Everything we ate was wonderful. The restaurant is very rustic and excellent value for money. Highly recommended!

We dropped in for a cup of coffee and were treated like one of the family. The coffee was excellent the best we had found in our two weeks in Sicily. Although it means a bus ride up the mountain from Taormina it is well worth it. The views are fantastic.

Excellent small family cafe/restaurant, with some tables offering a view of Etna, serving excellent pasta (recommend the polpette - meatballs), pizza and toasted panini.

We stayed at The Ashbee in Taormina and ate at many restaurants in the town. Despite all the restaurants being very nice, there wasn't one like this. The food was very traditional, fresh and hearty at Gallo Cedrone, we enjoyed every mouthful! We even walked back up to the village twice just to eat there (walk straight down the Main... More

Our guide took us in this restaurante during our tour in Taormina. It is a simple, family-run restaurant, but the food is excellent, the prices reasonable and they give you a very warm, sicilian welcome. I recommend it

We were brought here by our tour guide and treated like family from the moment we entered. The meal was divine (I'll never eat Canoli anywhere again) and reasonably priced. The interaction with mama and her staff was fun and added to the enjoyment of a meal. Where else do you get home made food with a view of a... More
