The “Restaurant Trattoria da Nino” was open more than fifty years ago, and has been managed by three generations of the same NICITA family.

It is now managed by Nicita Antonino and Nicita Gianluca; the former brought his forty years experience in the restoration sector, and the latter, the younger one, has brought on modernity for a perfect combination of experience and innovation.
The Restaurant offers many specialities based on fish, meat and vegetables with a first-rate service and excellent wine list.

This year, besides the splendid panoramic terrace from which you can admire the Sicilian and Calabrian oriental coast, we have also opened a wonderful panoramic private hall, which can only be used upon booking with a fish-based tasting menu, served with excellent wines.

It can be booked for a minimum of six people to a maximum of ten or twelve people.


Our specialities start everyday with the production of homemade pasta and the selection of the best fresh fish (Red prawn of Mazara del Vallo, top quality red tuna, fish rolls and our very fresh grill), we also offer a wide choice of hors d’oeuvres based on marinated and raw fish.


We offer vegetarians main courses like ricotta cheese and spinach ravioli, as well as the very famous Norma style potato gnocchi (dumplings), also published on the NEW YORK TIMES.

Our meats are of the best Italian quality and are cooked in fifteen different ways.

What our patrons have to say

"Definitely the No. 1 restaurant in Taormina... Nino's genuine personal interest in his clients' complete satisfaction is difficult to match. This is a real eating place where good Sicilian food, which is superbly prepared, is guaranteed. Eating at Da Nino is definitely one of the highlights of an enjoyable stay in wonderfully charming Taormina" - Peter & Jenny, Malta.


The “Restaurant Trattoria da Nino” is situated a few steps away from the arch of Porta Messina (old town centre), nearby the cableway, which from the centre takes you to Taormina Mare (Mazzaro'-Isola Bella), close to the bank BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas.
