    Recommended by a friend who had enjoyed a cooking course there we went with high expectations. We weren't disappointed but the 'wow' factor wasn't there. The owner, Luca, is very proud of what he's created as he should be but it needs a little extra zing.

    Spent 12 days in Sicily an came here twice. Luca (the owner) runs a top flight place. Best 2 meals we had in Sicily. I would highly recommend OSD to anyone traveling to Taormina.

    We went to Osteria Santa Domenic à yesterday night. We were just my husband and I despite booking for 4 ( our friends didn’t come) but the manager of the restaurant was extremely nice and understanding. He is one of the reason why this restaurant is amazing he talks to you about his menu& food like a poem, he is a real character. The food itself is excellent and we’ve tried the specials of the day ( which are a complete additional menu) with no regrets. It’s the best food we had in Taormina! Service is great too! We will definitely come back!

    The food is amazing and the owner and his staff are very helpful and friendly. I recommend to take the dishes the owner recommends as the daily specials.

    Very warm welcome from the owner who walked us through all the dishes of the day. We both opted to choose from the specials and didn’t even read the menu because they sounded so good! The terrace is great for people watching and you can also see in to the chefs working in the kitchen.

    The owner was on good form and made our evening enjoyable - delicious local wines served in proper size glasses - food delicious and large portions - we had the red shrimps and a calamari starters followed by tuna stack and an excellent steak served with a truffle sauce - most enjoyable

    Food was excellenct, But the Chef wasn‘t focused on his guests. His attention goes beside to other things while he is talking about his recommondations of the day. No one asked us if we were satisfied. That was pretty pity.

    An excellent experience from beginning to end. Not a large menu (all to the good as this usually means food is freshly cooked) but with options to choose innovative dishes of the day. Staff were efficient but friendly. We were impressed not only with the food but the owners eye for detail with the decor and even the huge balloon wine glasses perfect for red wine. Overall we were very happy with choosing Red and White, from the bread selection to mussel chowder, squid and the pastas. All beautifully cooked and a little bit different. We hope that we have the good fortune to return.

    The wait for the food was incredibly long and the food portions were not fulfilling enough. The taste could be better. The staff was nice though.

    It was NYE and they had a special menu. It ended up being a very expensive meal.

    Great atmosphere. Charming host. Really recommend the menu of the day, which Gianluca will describe to you himself verbally. For the organic local wine try Terra dei Lupi.

    Lovely food and wine, and a personable owner who was very engaging (and seems to take it upon himself to do most of the service personally). We weren't given a wine list when we sat down and subsequently felt quite rushed making our drinks order (however the owner was very helpful and we ended up with a delicious Etna Rosso). Starters and mains came in a timely manner and were very tasty - notably the pasta with black pig ragu. Unfortunately our experience was let down when we waited 45mins after finishing our mains before we could get anyone's attention to order desserts. After a further 15mins wait, with wine well and truly gone, and no sign of said desserts (which were all pre-made in glasses from what we had seen) we decided just to pay up and leave. The owner seemed genuinely apologetic about our experience and offered us a complimentary glass of sweet wine on our way out, which was delicious and very welcome - however didn't quite cover the sour end to our evening.

    Food was great but pricey. Owner treated us and served us. A lot of positive energy. Expect 100 euro for 2 with wine
