Despite being located right near the entrance to Villa Casale, this restaurant has very good, authentic food. A great choice for lunch when visiting this incredible historic site.

Had noticed this as we passed on our way in to Villa Romana, and wondered whether it would be traditional or "pseudo" Sicilian food. However, very hungry after our walk round the villa and relying on Martino, our taxi driver, we stopped her on the way back. Could not have been better. Excellent service and an extensive menu, with so... More

After a visit to Villa Romana, a nice place to try true Italian food...like a home cooked meal. Service was excellent as well. We had a group of 14 and service was quite timely.

It's a nice and quite place for enjoying a meal after the visit of Villa Romana. The external cover terrace is perfect to eat local dishes based on pasta, meal or cheese. I tried pasta and an assortment of cheese, they was good. The staff is helpful and welcoming and the price is right.

After a wonderful visit to the Roman Villa we were in need of some lunch. The staff were welcoming and lots of local food on offer. I picked the rabbit stew which was tasty but needed a side order with it to make it more sustaining.

After visiting the Roman Villa we decided to stop at La Ruota for lunch. Amazing rustic food, you can really taste typical Sicilian food cooked with love! The waiters were so incredibly kind and helpful and we had probably the best Sicilian cannoli we had during our week stay across Sicily. I would definitely recommend eating here.

We really enjoyed our lunch stop here, after visiting the Roman Villa Casale. The food was excellent from the appetizers to the dessert. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the food at this family run establishment. All of the food is so fresh and delicious. Please enjoy the cannoili for dessert as the ricotta tastes so...
