Located ever so slightly of the main shopping street, easy to find. This place was recommended to us by our B&B hosts at the Arco Dei Capuccini, Rita & Luigi. We struck super lucky, Fresh Porcini Mushrooms just in from Etna, so they got ordered of course. Porcini Tagliatelle to start and a Porcini Fillet steak. My girlfriend had the... More

We went there on recommendation from our hotel. In general, food was good and the service was friendly. The wine by the glass was quite poor, avoid it.

Having read few very good reviews on italian websites I decided to give this restaurant a try: they welcome you with a complementary glass of prosecco and a lovely bruschetta, someone wrote on TripAdvisor, in English, that they charge you for these, it's a lie. I wasn't charged, and it also does not seem that type of restaurant, it's not... More

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.
