“Mouthwatering Sicilian food and great owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

After having read the numerous good reviews about this place, we decided to have our Easter lunch here. We do not regret it! We had a great lunch here and ended up dining here on our last night in Taormina as well.

We tried the spaghetti botterga and homemade ravioli with prawns and pistachios for starters during the Easter lunch which were simply delicious. For mains we both had the veal which was equally good. On our second time we shared the seafood antipasto which was as fresh as one can imagine simple dressed with lemon. For main we shared the linguine astice (lobster) and it is by far the best I ever had; even better than the ones we had in other parts of Italy. The sauce is simply mouthwatering and the lobster extremely tender.

Apart from the food, what makes this place special are also the owners; they treat everyone like friends and make you feel at home. Nino especially is always ready to suggest about the best dishes to try and the wines to match each dish.

We will be back next time round in Taormina:) Thanks.

Unassuming but convincing in its menu and quality of service. Full of people who know what they're eating and know that it's very good!

“A gem in Taormina you would be mad to miss”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

We were staying at Villa Carlotta and when we enquired about where to go out for dinner, they did not hesitate in recommending Nino's and we now see why. The food was outstanding and tasted just like 'Mama' had cooked it. All the staff were absolutely charming and by Taormina standards the bill was very reasonable. The fact it has received over 500 reviews speaks for itself and Nino's should be number one in Taormina. We loved it so much, we went on 2 consecutive nights !

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

We went for the weekend in Taormina and we went for lunch at Da Nino Trattoria as I read on Trip Advisor very good reviews. I can say that Trattoria Da Nino was as good as it was described! For first course meal we ate homemade ravioli one was with spinach and ricotta and the other was with scrimps and cream, mmmm delicious! As a main course I took the Sicilian caponata which was amazing too! As dessert the Cassatella Siciliana of course and again this was superb! Stuff is very friendly too and they also gave us a liquor on the house too at the end of our meal. Will visit again next time, Thanks Da Nino!
