Our hotel recommended this restaurant to us and made us a reservation. I wish that they hadn't. Some of the food was good, others average, and one was awful. The pasta dishes were OK, but lacked deep flavours. Our second dishes were not so good. The fried prawns and squid were ok, but the breaded steak was not good at... More

We were most impressed by the ambience, the service and the food. We had two antipasti which we shared and then I had veal with green pepper sauce, my wife went for the... More

We were in Noto on January 2017 and it was very difficult to find an open restaurant to eat. Luckily we found this family-run trattoria with some really good pasta dishes, very nice atmosphere and a very attentive service. What else we would want! I highly recommend it.

I don't usually write reviews, but during our stay in Noto we came here twice for dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. This is a must go as we felt really at home and the staff went out of their way to ensure we were properly served.

During our stay in Noto we met a lovely couple that runs a b&b in the town. They advice us to go and eat in Trattoria Fontana d'Ercole and we weren't disappointed. The food was genuinely good and fresh. The lady chef knows exactly how to bring good flavors on the table and it does it with simplicity. The prices... More

Recommended by our hotel we loved this little trattoria - the pasta was delicious some of the best we have had. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table in a local bar so I suggest reserving a table. Price was great 2 course and wine each €50

we came with my wife after a while for a dinner again and the only disappointing was that we have to wait ..... Not because of tourist but because of many local families who are use to eat at Corado restaurant. I really don't like to made a reservation (especially when you are just two) but sometimes is recommended. there... More

we had an early dinner; party of 6, including 2 kids (aged 2 and 3). there were no high chairs or cushions or even a couple of spare tablecloths to help the kids reach the table. The staff were not very helpful or aware of what was on the menu (to properly describe it and inform on allergens etc). The... More

We were sent to this place by the very competent lady of Modica tourist office. It was Sunday, loud and very busy, however the staff, which probably consist of family members were attentive, quick and friendly. The food was delicious - excellent home cooking at very reasonable prices. A real Sicilian family trattoria.
