Taormina Sicilian Cuisine Reviews List

Taormina Sicilian Cuisine

Inspired by authentic Sicilian recipes from the kitchens of Southern Italy's seaside town of Taormina, Chef Hiroyuki Mimura pairs fresh pastas with the highest quality seafoods and meats. Unspoiled by heavy sauces, Sicilian-style pastas are dressed in pure, extra virgin olive oil. Fresh vegetables, lightly grilled fresh local fish, and lamb seasoned with herbs offer diners a healthy range of options. From the simple to the exotic, the showcased daily selections of Antipasti Misti (before the meal) include Palermo Style Caponata, Prosciutto di San Daniele with local Papaya, and Marinated Squid and Octopus. Featured dishes include fresh Fettucine Carbonara finished with tableside Truffle service, Seared Local Ahi Tuna, Grilled Lamb Chops "Palermo" and Veal "Siciliana." Taormina's specialty dish is Uni Pasta (sea urchin), a delicacy enjoyed in Japan and Italy. Italian espressos compliment Dolci (dessert) selections of house made desserts such as Cannoli Siciliana and Tiramisu.

"We ate here last year for my husbands birthday and the lamb was excellent. We came again this year and lamb was just as good! The vegetables go well with the meat. The birthday treat is tiramisu which was the best I ever had and plenty for 2 to share."

"This restaurant is small with an amazingly quaint ambiance. It is located amongst many other restaurant that are part of a 'chain'. This restaurant offered a wide variety of wines from USA, and Italy. I chose the Grand Prix dinner option that included several small bites of appetizers, a pasta dish, an entrě and a sampling of desserts. The squid ink pasta was fabulous and the lamb chop was cooked to perfection! Definitely will eat here next time we visit as we go to Hawaii at least 2x per year"

"We wanted to take our adult children out for a very nice holiday meal. Although there are many great restaurants in Waikiki, we keep coming back to Taormina for their delicious fresh Sicilian seafood and superb meat dishes. Their cold antipasti misti lets you choose 4 different tastes and the portions aren't tiny and each is delicious. I had the seafood affogato with perfectly cooked shrimp and scallops and fish in s garlic butter bath. Although I'm a sucker for Chef Hiros delicious lamb I opted for his marinated rib eye instead (my daughter got the lamb so I didn't miss out completely) both were delicious. We ordered the same excellent Valpolicella we had in Rome a few months ago off their not ridiculously long but very relevant wine list Don't miss the cocktails either they are great. Still thinking about the Kalakaua mule. Also the best fresh pasta in town and Chefs squid ink pasta is second to none. Overall we are reminded of the original Nicks Fishmarket where impeccable service and delicious food combine for a magical evening. We will be back."

"We visit as often as we can, but we were lucky to be free to enjoy our Christmas dinner at Taormina with Chef Hiro's holiday 5 course tasting menu. Enjoyed every bit of it along with the wine pairing. I can decide which was my favorite, the Tesoro Di Mare or the fresh made Chitarra with sweet Molokai shrimp and bisque (which my fiance ate a good part of!)"
