We stopped at Il Porcino for lunch without any prior expectations. The pistachio pizza was spectacular, the best pizza we ate during two weeks in Sicily. The remaining dishes were also good, though not quite at the same level. Overall a very satisfactory lunch!

Enjoyed the antipasto as well as the pasta all pesto siciliano though a but t less cooking of the pasta would have been better. Excellent & courteous service. Will come back.

Recommended if one wants to experience a local Sicilian meal. Excellent meal and value for money...no wonder restaurant was full...busy days better to book ahead.

Great place for lunch. Simple fresh fare and local dishes. Full of Italian families. Not too much English which we take as a good sign.

We reserved a table for dinner on a Saturday evening and specifically asked if they had fresh Porcini mushrooms; the answer was positive. We arrived at 20:00, asked the waiter for the fresh Porcini and we were told that we were “lucky” as they just...More

Honest, solid food with fresh ingredients from the market, what more to ask ? Just look at the chef's availability and kindness and you'll see what I'm talking about

Very good food but a dour waitress served us - service with no smile. Quite a good selection of food.
