“A find with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

We drove high above Taormina, walked through a charming city and enjoyed an amazing meal thanks to our driver, Fabio, with sicilywithmario.com. The entire experience was memorable. Food is prepared by a family and didn't really know who was who, but there was a lot of smiles and laughter. Charming.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

Very hospitable friendly and homely restaurant. The two women mother and daughter are excellent cooks. We had a wonderful time eating lasagna, risotto, pizza, tuna salad and Jamaican coffee. To include almond wine made in the premises. Love love it.

“Microwaved lasagna”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Small place that looks a bit touristy. Do not understand the reviews here, as i found the main course of lasagna was of very poor quality. I actually saw them put it in a microwave. It was watery, tastless and far below Sicilian standards. Salad was very basic and even the canneloni dessert tasted a bit soapy, which was probably suppose to be lemon. Service was nice enough if you do not count the chef staring at my girlfriend trough the kitchen window. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the magnificient view of the sun setting on the Etna. Avoid or just have drinks.

“View, FOOD and Mama Maria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Absolutely loved Gallo Cedrone! We came here for lunch and got bruschetta, pizzas and the meats, cheeses and olives platter. True Sicilian pizza. It is amazing! Ended with Almond wine on the house and a double kiss from Mama Maria! Such a fantastic value. You will love this place.

“Return visit and still outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We visited Castelmola (Taormina), largely to revisit Gallo Cedrone when stopping off in Messina on a cruise. It did not disappoint in any way. We had a 'brunch' on the front terrace with wonderful views of Etna and were treated very well with superb bruschetta and refills of Mandorla wine, the village speciality

This is an authentic, friendly, family-run establishment and we'd thoroughly recommend a visit. So two kisses for Irene and one for Mama Maria even though she wasn't there :)
