Trattoria Don Ciccio

"Trattoria" is the name used by Italians to refer to those "less sophisticated" restaurants where authenticity and Italian flavours are the main focus. Combining fresh ingredients cooked on the spot and a rustic atmosphere, Trattoria Don Ciccio can offer pasta-based dishes as well as many kinds of meat, such as pork shank with almonds and locally caught swordfish.


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.
