I've been coming here for years. Maria and Riccardo are the best. Everything on the menu is so delicious - there is nothing that I wouldn't recommend!

Thoroughly recommend this place. Family run. The bruschetta was really the best I have tasted. We just had a quick lunch there after walking from Taormina. Would love to go back and have evening dinner there.

If you are looking for a quieter restaurant, not at the village center, the Gallo Cedrone is one that also offers a nice view of the Etna. The pizzas are good and they serve the local specialty almond milk and almond wine.

A really friendly restaurant - simple food, well done and a view of Etna. We had a pizza and salad to share especially adapted - half fish and half vegetarian. Lovely bruschetta and Almond wine thrown in. Charming conversation with the Sicilian hosts

Situated at the far end of Castelmola with great views towards Mt Etna. Dropped in to this fairly traditional and basic Trattoria for a quick lunch and drink. Couple of drinks and well filled Foccacia for less than E20 was good value. Owner/chef/waiter all in...More

As the restaurant is a family run affair I don't think there are special dishes that are gluten free. However, everything is fresh and homemade so I'm sure you would be able to find something that would suit.

Sorry, we were there for lunch and I don't know what time they close. Check their website and if closing hours aren't posted, maybe you can send them an email.
