Da Cristina is the perfect restaurant for those looking for a cheap, good and fast snack in Taormina. The pasta al forno looked amazing. We had Arancini which were ok (had better).

Locals eat there. Cheap but tasty, and snappy fast. The only drawback is that there's not much seating available, so you might have to get your food to go and eat it somewhere else. Not hard at all, since the place is basically by the main street.

Family operated grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter. They work hard and are open for long hours even off-season. Friendly, fast, many locals eat here. Excellent arancini, best I have had anywhere in Sicilia. Delicious pizza, my favorite, the arugula and tomato. Leave room for a slice of schiaciattii if you can. Variety of flavor options available including vegetarian options. Cannot believe... More
