We visited this restaurant twice because we really rated both the service and the quality of the food. We ate spaghetti vongole and the fish soup, which was a main meal dish. We declined the catch of the day purely on price. All restaurants in this area are quite pricey but we thought that we had exceptional quality, so it was acceptable. Highly recommended.

Stayed in a hotel half a minute away from Castellucio & found ourselves returning on a regular basis during our stay in Taormina. First & foremost..the pizza. Quite simply the best we've ever had! These chaps know what they'r about! Lovely bunch of guys too. ..Oh & the nicest bass I'v ever tried too

Not sure if it is because I was not particularly hungry but I was not impressed with the food here. Its a cozy local restaurant. We ordered only one main (pasta trapani) and I ordered an octopus salad with a balsamic dressing.
The pasta was nice, my octopus salad was servived on a small bed of rocket, the octopus was cooked well but it was drenched in balasamic vinegar which made me squint at each bit and i could not taste the squid at all. I am not sure why was presented that way. I was expecting a lovely fresh rucola salad with freshly dressed octopus with a drizzle of balsamic but both were swimming in it.
Disappointing really. Especially for an place famous for its fish. Dessert we went for the safe option and ordered one tiramisu but it had only one layer of biscuits and LOTS of cream, not complaining BUT i had better......second time in Sicily and not impressed with the food.....

With the quality and quantity to match, they can produce good food and introduce excellent wine.
Visited the place twice this month. First time, 5 people 360 Euro. Second time, 6 people for a late night snack and wine, 500 Euro. Both time we left there praising how good it was.
Believe me, it doesn't have to be like that. One can enjoy a decent meal here for between 35-40 Euro p.p. With wine and etc....
Our first visit, our host told the waiter " bring us the freshest prawns, langoustines, fish, oysters, octopus, etc....and a couple of bottles of fine wine. " so it kept coming to the best of our satisfaction and hence the tall bill.
Our second time, we just wanted some fish soup and simple pasta. Was introduced to have half a fish. Mind you the half fish weighs over 2 kg. (Anywhere you go in town, to pick fish on display , the price tag is around 60 Euro per kg. Doesn't matter which kind of fish you pick) On this night, our host requested a fine bottle of red, it ended up that the bottle was for 140 Euro. Hence the huge bill.
Mind you, both times, we left there praising the quality of food and how satisfied everyone was.
The moral of the story is, to get what you want, be in control and act sensibly. This restaurant can definitely cater accordingly.
