Had a wonderful late dinner here. The fish and pasta were fantastic, and the wine list was very good. The waiter was helpful in choosing wines to accompany our meal,

Go to this place. A great quiet setting just off the main street, on an idyllic back lane, awesome service in Italian and English, and phenominal food. Really outstanding food. We had asparagus rolls (great), the Sicilian ragu pasta (outstanding), and a variety of fish and meat entrees (swordfish, lamb chops, orange tuna). All were truly excellent. Wine list was... More

We ordered the grouper and grilled mixed vegetables and found it to be very good. The seasoning and sauce was excellent. Wish we could of tried more items on the menu.

We first met Turi Siligato in 2004 when he had finished his first year as a restauranteur. We made friends with him back then and have loved watching him grow. He has a passion for cooking with fresh ingredients, and he is charming. His staff are excellent (Levi, Alex, Christina, et al), and we are friends with all of them.... More

We have just had 4 nights in Taormina and was recommended this lovely restaurant from a friend at home. Ended up going for dinner twice during our stay. Great friendly service, lovely food and a very busy relaxed atmosphere. You definitely need to book.

Everything about our evening at Osteria Nero D'Avola was five star! It is hidden away from the bustle of the main street of Taormina where endless waiters are trying to lure you in. What a contrast! We were warmly greeted by a friendly waiter who then looked after us attentively (but was not overbearing) throughout the meal. The food was... More

Great food and service. The chef/owner is a charming gentleman with a passion for locally sourced, sustainable food. A devotee of the Slow Food movement. An innovative approach to Sicilian food. Highly, highly recommend.

Someone told us the food in Taormina was not great. That person obviously never discovered this place. The only problem with the menu is that you will want to eat everything. Was so good we are here two of our three nights in Taormina. The menu changes daily depending on what is fresh and in season so hard to recommend... More

What an amazing restaurant. We were a group of (mainly) vegetarians and we were exploring the streets of Taormina and stumbled across this restaurant. We looked at the menu and didn't really see much and started walking away - the owner/chef saw us and came out and convinced us to come and eat and he would prepare what we wanted.... More
