If you want to try the real local cuisine of the "Monti Iblei" this is the right place for you. The menu is not huge, but the few choices are enough to satisfy anybody. The quality of food is fantastic and all local. With 50...More

Very disappointed to find this place closed! It was very highly recommended, travelled a long way and was not easy to find at all! There was nothing else in Buccheri!

What an excellent meal. Swimming in the sea (November 2nd - Aranella) in the morning and lunch at Osteria U Locale one hour later in the hills. Great drive and day from Siracusa.

Description
Inland Syracuse, where they meet three provinces of South-Eastern Sicily, lies at the foot of Mount Laurel (the highest mountain of the Mountains Iblei), a small village full of traditions and popular culture. In the geographic center of the country, where bars and alleys meet creating a medieval atmosphere, punctuated by baroque churches, is a place that has managed to combine during the years the aromas and flavors that time and the pace of modern life take us away.
