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.
