The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We received a clear explanation of the specials and patience with our lovely family. The prawn carpaccio was lovely. However the shell fish pasta dishes (prawn and lobster) were both dry and disappointing. The ricotta desert was delicious.

Having read the excellent reviews, we arrived for dinner to find a restaurant totally empty, barring the staff. We were shown to a table, given menus and felt press-ganged into ordering water before we'd even sat down. Whilst perusing the menu, our waiter drifted up and down behind us in a very unsettling manner. We found it difficult to concentrate... More

As you will see, the address for Casa Niclodi is 2 Alexander von Humboldt, we rented an apartment at 7 AvH. Since we stayed in Taormina for a month, the owners of Casa Niclodi became our neighbors. Their food was excellent and served in a very friendly and beautiful atmosphere. Authentic Sicilian dishes are wonderfully prepared and beautifully plated. Since... More

Two couples enjoyed a marvelous Sicilian dinner. Sea bass was beautifully served and tasted fresh out of the sea! Wine list was full of Italy, and rather reasonable. Service was generous, friendly, and prompt. We WILL be back!

Wonderful restaurant with welcoming hosts, delicious Sicilian cuisine and atmosphere. We had fresh pasta with sardine, pine nuts, raisins and fennel, and another pasta with tomatoes and eggplant - both excellently showcasing Sicilian flavors and piping hot out of the kitchen. The capricciosa pizza and minestrone soup were also both excellent. Messina birra was also good. Would recommend and definitely... More

My husband and I were walking down the Corso Umberto when a nice man asked us to check out his restaurant (assumed he was the owner) - we were open to looking - and are we glad we did!! The rooftop terrace is so beautiful - perfect for a nice romantic evening. Really liked that the tables were not squished... More

I usually never go to restaurants where they have a need to use a bouncer outside to call and plea for you to come in. The person however was the owner who just asked us to come in and have a look in his family establishment. As we entered the terrazze, we were pleasantly surprised. A cosy quazi luxurious feel....

Excellent service! The food was tasteful. We love that they have a genuin philosophy for the food and drink they serve. A calm and warm athmosphere! This must be one of the best restaurants in Taormina.

Nice setting but after reading TripAdvisor reviews was disappointed. I was expecting so much more but thought the food was ok but pricey and the staff were always trying to get you to spend more.
