    Great restaurant in Taormina. Authentic top quality food, absolutely delicious. Great service, very attentive. In a place full of touristic low quality restaurants, Osteria Santa Domenica stands out.

    Well, the food was better than in an average restaurant in Taormina and they also have some creativity so the prices are also higher which is partly understandable. BUT: despite the covid situation and the lack of tourists especially after november it should not happen that without any prenotice they charge you 72 € for 6gr(?) of white(?) truffel. So after these surprises I'd also agree with some comments before me that's what we CALL a TOURIST TRAP.

    I had the best fish tartar in my life. Choose the dish of the day! I whish i could take the chef back home with me just to have him as a fried in my daily life. Bottom line, it was perfect!

    The food is excellent and the staff is super friendly so you don’t mind if the service is slow. Worth the wait for the delicious food and wine.

    The food is average and expensive for what it delivers. The sitting was awful. Disregarding Covid measures the tables were literally stuck to each other and thus 0 privacy. I would say that it it not worth at all to bother and come here

    Lovely small restaurant with excellent food and attentive and friendly service. The owner and connoisseur is meeting and greeting customers. Its obvious he runs his restaurant with love and passion, putting customers in the first place. They have seasonal menu using fine local products and ingredients. Tuna tartar with melons was outstanding as well as the melting sea-bass rapped with purple sweets potato on carrot pure. Highly recommend this charming restaurant.

    This is one of those rare restaurant spot you can find in a tourist setting that are serious about their craft of cooking quality local seasonal food that best represents the geographic area, in this case Sicily at it finest. Can’t wait to return, to a warm and informative staff in a super present setting…… oh and yes the food is the real star !!

    We loved this restaurant. The setting was very pretty and not touristy, the service excellent and the food was sublime with ricotta stuffed zucchini flowers, tuna tartare with chilli and mango, herb crusted lamb and superb homemade bread, some with turmeric, some with onions and sun-dried tomatoes. All really beautifully presented. I can"t recommend it highly enough.

    Was referred here by a friend and was an amazing experience. The owner came to our table and made our dinner very personalized. The food was so fresh. The restaurant is a must! I will be back on my next trip to Taormina!

    Nice little restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. A friendly welcome. We enjoyed the zucchini flowers with ricotta, prawn risotto and sea bass. Great choice of local wines too.

    Quite a small restaurant so we recommend you book, The food was very tasty and well presented and a little bit of a variation form the standard menu that most of the restaurants seem to serve, particularly with the starters. Weirdly they do not offer any contorni, so you cannot add any vegetables on the side, but we enjoyed it and is one of the few restaurants in Taormina that we would recommend.

    This dinner was very disappointing. In fact, nearly inedible. After a beautiful speech from the owner about how everything on the menu is fresh, and an interesting menu, we ordered happily 2 dishes that sounded incredible. When we received our risotto with red shrimps, what we received was very sad. It wasn’t truly a risotto, you could tell that it was just rice with a sauce poured on top. Then for the shrimp... where were they?? There were only 2 very tiny shrimps (the kind that you only find frozen) in the whole dish. On top of this, there was not a trace of salt. It was completely bland, not even a taste of shrimp. It was tasteless. We complained to the waitress who said she would tell the cooks. Then arrived our second course, a grilled piece of tuna on zucchini with onions. The onions were still cold and were clearly the kind that come straight out of a jar. Then the tuna... horrible. Again, this dish did not even have salt. We complained and asked for some salt and pepper and oil to try to fix it ourselves. But still, the quality of tuna was bad. It was definitely a frozen tuna (not fresh like we were told by the owner) and had a rubbery feel. On top of this, it didn’t have a flavor of having been grilled... it looked like it was, but it tasted like it had been grilled, then frozen, and then microwaved and plated for us. Just really sad. We also wanted to have a glass of wine, but the cheapest glass they had available was 16€. Then the bottles of wine we usually buy at home were over 4 times the price on the wine list. A normally 8€ bottle of wine was listed for 35€. And that was one of their cheapest wines on the list. In the end, extremely disappointing. We ate what we could manage because at such a late time there wasn’t much opportunity to get a reservation at another restaurant. On top of it all, it cost a lot. Was not worth even to walk in the door.

    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.
