Good, no-nonsense Sicilian cucina casalinga (home cooking) is the recipe for success in this unpretentious, brightly lit room (with an airy terrace in warm weather) across from the upper station of the cable car. Pastas are housemade (deliciously delicate gnocchi, little potato dumplings, are served alla Norma, with eggplant and ricotta), and the fish is fresh and served simply grilled. Nino's is a local institution, a 50-year veteran of the Taormina dining scene, and it’s always packed; they don’t take reservations for groups of fewer than six.
