    A beautiful little courtyard in the backstreets of Taormina. All dishes were good, with one or two stand-out. One of the best places we ate in Taormina.

    After some difficulty in locating the restaurant we found a beautiful courtyard to dine outside. The restaurant was very quiet but the food and service was excellent

How to get to the restaurant

Via S. Maria de Greci, 2, 98039, Taormina, Italy

About the restaurant

A good Island. In the heart of Taormina, a few steps from the Duomo Cathedral, in the ancient and charming home Cipolla. In a historic palace of the late fifteenth century, with two large Roman cisterns (hence the name, in greek), “Kiste” is a place where to find a selection of the best Sicilian flavors to be enjoyed inside or outside the restaurant or eat at home , thanks to the proposal of brand products “IO Pietro D’Agostino“.

The name Kisté is a tribute to the Greek origins of Taormina and it makes reference to the presence of two ancient Greek tanks in the old Casa Cipolla, monument heritage-listed in 1939, a rare example of the late Renaissance Sicilian style in Taormina.

Kistê (from the greek) has been, therefore, a source of inspiration for Chef Pietro who wants to show his whole nutritional philosophy by creating a "box" of ingredients and flavors that made his cuisine renewed. Thus, at Kisté, and at La Capinera, he has made a careful selection of ingredients: the Etna nocellara olive oil, a white wine from Pantelleria (DOC) , 2 types of honey from Zafferana Etna and a pasta, the pacchero, made with Sicilian grains.

Sicilian top quality ingredients available with the brand "IO Pietro D'Agostino".
