Tischi Toschi prides itself on using only seasonal ingredients, so that's why its menu changes according to what is available at the local markets, but examples of what you may find are fennel meatballs, caciocavallo all'Argentiera, which is a typical kind of cheese, and cod belly with potatoes.
The essence of the Sicilian cuisine lies in dishes that belong to a tradition dated hundreds of years ago, resulting from the mixture of different cultures that have lived in this town starting from its first Greek settlements. Taormina boasts some of the most well-renowned eateries of the Mediterranean Island. The tender meat of the swordfish fished locally is served with vegetables or plain as a "secondo piatto" (the second course) always preceded by a "primo piatto" (the first course, usually pasta, risotto or soup) and an antipasto (the appetiser). To finish off the meal you can order a dessert rigorously accompanied by almond wine, a peculiarity of Taormina's tradition.
