Description: Trattoria da Nino, known by locals for its genuine Sicilian fare for three generations, was established over 50 years ago by the Nicita family of Taormina. Co -owners Nino Nicita, with forty years in the restaurant sector, and his nephew Gianluca, with a background in modern rennovation and wines expertise, bring the perfect combination for a fine dining experience - high quality locally sourced food, innovation, and hospitality. The restaurant offers meat, fish and vegetarian specialties, first rate service and an excellent wine list featuring the best Sicilian wines. In addition to the modern dining room, we offer a splendid panoramic terrace, providing a view of the northern Sicilian Coast and the west Coast of Calabria. Or, you may choose to reserve our newly rennovated private hall, complete with panoramic view, for our special fish based menu and complementary wines, available for parties of 6 - 12 persons.

Listen for the specials as you can not go wrong. We ate a mixed seafood that was incredible fresh and distinct with some much flavor . Followed by pasta with sea urchin. On to veal in a perfect wine sauce. It goes on with great wine and fun atmosphere. A must.

We decided to eat here for dinner as had walked by earlier and seen it packed, so checked Tripadvisor reviews and given positive reviews, decided to go there for dinner. We arrived at 8:30pm without reservations and had to wait ~20minutes for a table. If want to sit on terrace with view.....reservations a must. Had insalata Caprese and recommend. My husband had mixed fish carpaccio as an appetizer and thought was wonderful. I had Cozze in marsala and husband had veal in olive/caper tomato sauce. Both were good, but sauce on husband's dish was exceptional. I was swiping spoonfuls for my Cozze :-) I have had the Cozze dish three times previously, these were cooked the best, but sauce not the best have had. The wine the waiter recommended was very good.

We ate here after reading the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor.
We were definitely not disappointed. We had the tuna carpaccio and melenzane to start. I pretty much ate melenzane every day in Taormina, and this was the best one!
The tuna was extremely fresh.
For mains we both had the vongole....amazing. The service was also fantastic, very cheerful and helpful staff.
Can't really fault anything on this restaurant. You may think it's pricey, but Taormina in general is pricey to eat out!

Ate on the lower level inside. Good service, patient with our bad Italian, fabulous Caprese Insalata, spaghetti was great, house wine was good enough. Lots of smiles and friendly attitude. For extra romance sit on the balcony overlooking the bay.
