Although the setting is lovely- we were on the terrace overlooking the cathedral square - the food did not live up to expectation. Ask in advance for prices for "fish of the day". We were stung. Vastly overpriced and served on cold plates with no extras. By the time the fish had been served up in front of us it... More

I was there with a group of 40 people and we all had an amazing time. The food is incredible good, the atmosphere, the set up of tables just perfect. The staff super friendly and having the father of the boss around, making sure we were ok and delivering some of our request was just a bonus. The whole group... More

Ristorante al Duomo came as a surprise. Recommended by locals, we went there for dinner expecting good Sicilian kitchen. Sadly we were alone in the restaurant, but what a treat we got. Great Sicilian cooking, great wines, wonderful olive oils, attentive service - what more do you expect. The kitchen has ambition and the skills to deliver. Our dishes were... More

Six of us ate here last night. Three of us ordered very well and the other three not so much. Of course two of them were vegan so you're always chancing what you're going to get. The three that ordered well shared grilled vegetables which were good a risotto dish which was very very good and branzino which was excellent.... More

we had high hopes when we visited this restaurant but we're sadly disappointed. The starter, though well presented was tasteless - fried broad bean and cheese as was the langoustine risotto which was bland with just 2 langoustines in it. Duck was ok. We didn't bother to have the dessert, and the bill came to over 100 euros. Very expensive... More

My husband and I quite argued about that one: The food was really good in terms of quality but lacked a bit of specialness for a place like that. Rather pricey for what you get. Service was another thing. Asked for a wine we knew and liked (30-35 EUR) which was out, recommendation was a 60+EUR wine. Waited for 5+minutes... More

Just returned from 4 nights in Taormina and we LOVED our dinner at al Duomo. It was a cool but beautiful evening, and we dined al fresco over looking the duomo. Spectacular! Our party started with pasta and then shared a delicious whole fish with a cherry tomato, olive, potato sauce. It was fresh and scrumptious. The wait staff was... More

Owner offered a quick piccolo Prosecco when he did not have a table ready, good customer contact and fine table manners here.

We really wanted to like this restaurant. But found the food average. The location is terrific facing the Duomo -- with one major drawback-- 9 young boys noisily playing "hide and Seek" in the piazza. Two hours of constant enthusiastic screaming! The owner was a treat and offered us a grappa on the way out!

Wonderful food at Al Duomo which is located at Piazza Duomo. Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive. He spoke English which was a great help. The food was amazing. The restaurant is one level up from another restaurant so don't get it confused like we almost did. Enjoy!
