This was recommended to us by fellow travellers so we made reservations. Our order was taken by inattentive staff who didn't record our choices correctly. The staff was surly when we pointed out the incorrect order. We were totally disappointed! Also, once we had eaten,...More

Interesting mix of locals and tourists. The menu may, at first glance, look pretty standard but the quality is high. Service is excellent, fast without rushing you, and very alert to your needs. The staff can tell you about specials of the day. Atmosphere was...More

This place does not offer a friendly environment. The waiter taking our order payed more attention to people coming through the door than getting our order right. Consequently one dish was wrong. There were no smiles, just stone faces, no sense of humour whatsoever. I...More

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.
