Enthusiastic
Oct 2020 • Couples
Just to meet one of the owners-Enrico and see his enthusiasm is a good reason to come here. We were just two persons and still he took time to give us an introduction to Gli Aromi. The time of the year was maybe not the best for a visit but the highlight was the unbelievable parfume of the passion fruit flower.

beautiful experience
Jul 2020
This place is one of a kind! As you arrive you see those greenhouses and you think... hmm this place looks interesting. As you enter, you remain with your mouth wide open! It's so unusual, beautiful, smells so good, it feels like you have entered another dimension. It does not feel real. The place itself is stunning but the owner and his lovely wife really make you feel at home. They are super nice people, he is super funny as well. They treat you as you are a life long friend visiting them at home. First, we had a tour around the greenhouses and the field behind them. Countless species of herbs and plants. All different, with beautiful odors and colorful flowers. Mr. Enrico very knowledgable and super passionate about his project. It was a pleasure listening to him, even that I personally had no love for plants before. Now I want to fill my balcony with herbs :) At the end there was a light dinner made by his wife, using all the herbs they grow. It was delicious. The tour, the dinner, them! All of it. It's a perfect final to a day in Scicli/Modica. LOved every minute of it!

Great experience to learn about herbs
Jan 2020
We were fortunate to be able to visit as Enrico was leaving the following day for the USA. He is quite knowledgeable about herbs and Sicily. We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed our time with him. We wished we could have spent more time as there was so much to learn. Highly recommended.

Tour and lunch
Dec 2019 • Friends
This is an amazing location on the coast of Sicily. Enrico is growing amazing herbs and has big plans for the property. They also have a new amphitheater for events and music. His wife is an excellent chef and past restaurant owner.
A great and friendly place to visit.
They also have resuce dogs and are part of a program to care for local abandoned dogs.

A SPECIAL TREAT
Oct 2019
I recently returned from Sicily. Visiting this herb farm was a highlight, especially with Enrico as truly entertaining and knowledgeable as he is and Rita as delightful a person and excellent cook as she is. The farm is a work in progress, one which they have great plans to keep expanding, on its way to becoming a destination place to stay, while enjoying the view and the aromatic herbs. Well worth visiting. Grazie, Enrico and Rita

A Very Enjoyable Evening.
Oct 2019
Enrico and Rita Russino provided us with an unexpected fun evening. You would think that visiting an herb farm would consist of a boring set of lectures about plants and then a tasteless dinner. How wrong we were. Enrico could be on the stage. His enthusiasm for his work and his quick one liners made the herb tour an entertaining event. Rita, born in Brooklyn very near to where I lived my childhood, is a fantastic chef and the dinner was absolutely delicious. The main course was cooked outside on a very unique grill and produced some of the best chicken wings ever. Every part of the meal was fresh and unique. Even the herbal tea we started with was great. We also bought some homemade jams that Rita is trying to market, were unique and interesting and we bought some to give as gifts. This is a very unique place to visit. To make it even better are Enrico and Rita. Don't miss!!

The Enrico Caruso of Herbs
Oct 2019
There were eight of us who booked this experience: tour of the fabulous herbs gardens of Enrico Russino, followed by dinner outdoors cooked by his amazing Brooklyn-born wife-Chef, Rita. The gardens feature every conceivable variety of cooking and flavoring herbs, all with spectacular views. Dinner consisted of freshly cooked vegetables, including a unique flavorful appetizer from sage leaves and local wine, red and white, together with good olive oil & house bread. Sunset was divine. But the biggest attraction was Enrico himself: my other name for him is P.T.Barnum. He is a born entertainer with big plans and even bigger dreams. This was a lovely and unforgettable evening, it made up for my annoyance with the dullness of Scicli.

Fabulous tour of herb farm and amazing lunch
Oct 2019 • Friends
Enrico and Rita, owners of the herb farm and event center near Ragusa provided our travel group with the most hospitable, educational and fun day. We toured their farm and beautiful sea view property, helped cook a fabulous lunch, learned about their efforts to become a successful business, and enjoyed hearing about their personal stories. We had the opportunity to purchase exceptional and unique products. They speak excellent English. What a unique experience in Sicily!

AN OLFACTORY TOUR - TOUCH AND TASTE
Sep 2019
I stumbled across the website for Gli Aromi last year but didn't have time to fit it in. So it was at the top of my list for this year and we were not disappointed. You MUST have reservations as this is a working environment. A small group of people work hard to sustain this beautiful farm. Since we were in the area for a month, I requested a tour and lunch experience when it became available. My email was answered promptly with a date and time to arrive .The experience at Gli Aromi was refreshingly different. Enrico (the owner) and his lovely wife Rite went out of their way to cater to the guests. There were people from Holland and Italy in our group. You begin with a cool, refreshing mint tea while Enrico explains the herb farm and what the tour includes. Wear comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking. There is an amphitheater with views to the see where concerts are held on special occasions. Lunch was prepared for us by Rite. It was delicious and reflected the love of the land and the people who work it. There are wonderful homemade products that are available to purchase. We highly recommend this tour BUT YOU MUST HAVE RESERVATIONS.
