We were in Ustica for the film festival in August. It was my first time going there, and I was really looking forward to it. But as beautiful as the island was/is, we were a bit disappointed in the overall quality of the local restaurants with the exception of one, “Da Umberto’s.” Once we found them, we never went anywhere...

I keep on coming back to Umberto. His wife is leading the kitchen and the result is outstanding. Flavours and coups-de-chef that brings you right in the heart of this small and magic Sicilian isle.

There you feel at home and receive... More

Tasty food sourced locally. The fried calamari was exquisite. And the antipasti were also very tasty. Service was excellent.

We had lunch in this restaurant in the main square of Ustica and we enjoyed it very much. Lovely real sicipian food with fresh fish and moderate prices. Recommended

Yesterday I had the best scorfano (scorpion fish) I have eaten in my life. A surprise in Ustica where it is difficult to get good food.

If you like nouvelle cuisine don't come here. If you are in a hurry neither. This is the Temple of Ustica slow food! All dishes are made just for you, it takes time. Fresh fish, local produce, local organic wines (try Hibiscus l'Isola or the great Zibibbo Passito for dessert). Simple, "wise", home-like cooking from signora Giovanna and her aids,... More
