Da Cristina was recommended by our tour guide and he physically took us there or we would have never found it. It is in a terrible location for tourists to find which is a shame. Anyway - the pizza, arancini and other goodies are delicious....More

This restaurant is just around the corner from the square with the horse fountain. They had DELICIOUS cheese ball Arancini and while waiting for ours to be cooked, we watched as multiple generations of probably Christina’s family (and herself) prepared all the options. Would highly...More

Surely the best "tavola calda" bajery in Taormina! Service is not super efficient.. So avoid rush hours!

Not a lot of atmosphere. Not romantic or candlelit. But terrific pizza and arancini at great prices. And wine/beer. We went here due to positive Tripadvisor reviews and came back a second time. Easy to find, just below Piazza del Duomo on ocean side.

This is the meal I will remember from our short visit to Taormina, Sicily. This is a very small place, not a sit down restaurant but more of a stand up and eat in the corner type of place. The homemade pizzas, calzones and other...More
