My husband and I quite argued about that one: The food was really good in terms of quality but lacked a bit of specialness for a place like that. Rather pricey for what you get. Service was another thing. Asked for a wine we knew and liked (30-35 EUR) which was out, recommendation was a 60+EUR wine. Waited for 5+minutes... More

Just returned from 4 nights in Taormina and we LOVED our dinner at al Duomo. It was a cool but beautiful evening, and we dined al fresco over looking the duomo. Spectacular! Our party started with pasta and then shared a delicious whole fish with a cherry tomato, olive, potato sauce. It was fresh and scrumptious. The wait staff was... More

This is a reliable restaurant; dine outside as it is airy and sparkling with casual dining. Owner offered a quick piccolo Prosecco when he did not have a table ready, good customer contact and fine table manners here. Top rustic cum local cuisine without being to dressed; eggplant and cheese bake tasty, grilled, sliced octapus, charry, tender, crude seafood of... More

We really wanted to like this restaurant. But found the food average. The location is terrific facing the Duomo -- with one major drawback-- 9 young boys noisily playing "hide and Seek" in the piazza. Two hours of constant enthusiastic screaming! The owner was a treat and offered us a grappa on the way out!

Wonderful food at Al Duomo which is located at Piazza Duomo. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. He spoke English which was a great help. The food was amazing. The restaurant is one level up from another restaurant so don't get it confused like we almost did. Enjoy!

We made a huge mistake visiting this restaurant over the other, in hindsight, much better places to eat in Taormina. After walking in and asking if we could have a table for two. The person behind the bar, obviously the owner, asked if we had a reservation. Replying that unfortunately we didn't, his immediate, scoffing reaction seemed to set the... More

We had a fabulous dinner at Al Duomo we selected the fresh sea bass prepared Sicilian style which is very simple but really, really delicious, the service was perfect and on the way out the owner poured us all a shot of grappa which he participated in as well, one of our best meals on our month long vacation to...

Following 2 really poor meals at the San Domenico hotel restaurants we were delighted to dine here on our last evening in Taormina. Great selection of fresh seafood , friendly and efficient staff and an OK wine list. Recommended

This was a lovely restaurant- my friend and I went twice including for our final meal. Excellent fish in lovely natural light sauces and super friendly service. Beautiful location overlooking P del Duomo 2. Courses each plus good bottle of wine E 130 reasonable. Recommended!

We read mixed reviews before going but decided to go anyhow. Several reviewers said they felt ripped off by the lobster dinner. The reviewers were unaware of the cost and received a shocking bill of 120-150 euro. Sure enough the waiter pushed the lobster by bringing a live lobster to the table (which was not appetizing). Management's response to the... More
