It’s a place where u can find real local dishes prepared with huge experience. You will feel to be in a real Italian “taverna”

I cant speak highly enough of this wonderful establishment...I absolutely loved every dish I ordered. This place received incredibly good reviews from a reputable Australian travel guide and I have to say that my wife (Italian) and I we're not dissappointed... Brilliant experience

It is a good restaurant with quality food. Nice staff anyway. I took the menu against a reasonable price. The setting is beautiful and quiet in the evening. Romantic too.

Enjoyed dinner at Taverna Nicastro. It’s an unpretentious local eatery, with a short menu and a decent wine list. Surprisingly, no fish, but lots of meat dishes, including a mixed grill, which I enjoyed. Prices are fair and service pleasant. Recommended.

A super find. Perched at the top of an ancient staircase, the traditional Sicilian cuisine, tasty wine and friendly service make this a must-visit if you are in Monica Alta.
