Taormina is one of the most charming towns in the world. It is a place not to miss if you are in Sicily and if you want to be enchanted by the charm of nature and medieval history at the same time. It is a real gem set in a Sicilian heaven. Taormina is a pleasant place to spend a day although it is not cheap. I wrote about the most romantic Taormina restaurants where you can celebrate a special moment of your life, and most of all are included in the medium high category. Here is a list of traditional Taormina restaurants, where you can try Sicilian cuisine without spending a fortune.
TIP: every time I go to Taormina I have dinner in other places. Generally all the restaurants are a bit expensive. If you want to save some money you can have dinner in Castelmola, which is another lovely town near Taormina or in Catania (if you chose to stay here). Here prices are more affordable. Then be careful with the price of wine bottles and beverage! They soar!

This article has been required by a Travellector‘s fan who is going to travel to Taormina. I confess that the best Sicilian food is what you can taste at Sicilians’ houses. Every time I go to a restaurant I always find something which is not perfect at 100%. I think it is normal or I am too finicky. My mother and my grandmother cook divinely. They are great teachers to me 🙂
