Ristorante al Duomo served us our best meal in Taormina. I thoroughly enjoyed the fish. The lamb cooked three ways was interesting but not outstanding. The pasta was great. The service was excellent, and you could not improve upon the ambiance - what a beautiful...More

Say you're in Sicily for a while and getting sick of the same old, same old. Well, Ristorante al Duomo is the answer to your prayers. It takes traditional Sicilian ingredients, like arancini, tuna, swordfish, fava beans and others and spins them in innovative and...More

The restaurant has a nice view of Duomo. But this is the only "pro". The prices are high, the staff is unfriendly, the food is average. We ordered a steak, half of which was good, but the other half was impossible to cut or to...More

We were lucky enough to get a table here on a busy Saturday night, having left another restaurant due to poor service. We spotted the beautiful balcony overlooking the square. We were even luckier to be told that the private balcony table had just been...More

Dear client, I'm sorry to read that some distractions are described as structural issues. The "amouse bouche" that was a fresh tuna tartar preceded our communication with the kitchen and was promptly replaced with a vegetarian dish. As for the lemonade with ice I personally...More

Went here with my wife and kids with high expectations, but we were a bit disappointed. Sat outside at first, but there were so many wasps we had to go inside. Two of the waiters were really nice and great with the kids, while the...More

The location is hard to beat (but then again, it is Taormina, so could be said of many restaurants). To echo some other reviewers, the raw seafood platter was amazing, and the wine was terrific. We found service to be attentive and very personable and...More

We had an outstanding meal - and it would have been fabulous in the centre of London, New York or anywhere else with wall-to-wall amazing restaurants. The place itself is lovely - we had a table overlooking the very pretty square and church. Even though...More
