    Really superb restaurant. Excellent menu choice with high quality local produce. Coming to the end of our two week holiday and this has been the stand-out restaurant so far. Combines excellent food, top class service and a beautiful setting.

    Amazing setting in very cute garden, looked so pretty and absolute stunning. A place you would host your wedding dinner in. Dishes looked great, however, way too expensive for the quality and too much orange in every dish. The dishes were served very quick, too quick in our opinion after another and when asking to slow down, the kitchen was already ready for the next course. The staff was utmost kind and very well English speaking, but everything felt too forced. Literally waiting next to our table, for us to finish the course so they could pick our plates even before we put our cutlery down.

    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

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".
