We went there by chance. Several couples were already sitting in the restaurant and eating - having had a look at their dishes we could have chosen any of them, all looked very delicious. Unfortunately we had a relatively large lunch, so we were cautious and took only the mix of different apetizers. They were all amazing!

If you want great Sicilian food and wonderful service, go here. The lovely Samantha served us and recommended what we would order. She did an amazing job and we had an incredible meal. We waddled out at the end, full and very happy!

Had a great lunch here. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. If you visit in the off season don't expect any english spoken here. Small restaurant on a nicely hidden square off the beaten path. A must in Caltigirone,

There dont seem to be many restaurants in the old part of town so we were lucky to find this one. Great location, service, and excellent food. We had salmon in a pink pepper sauce and a chicken parissienne that were certainly one the best meals we'd had in Sicily. Amazing caramel chocolate ice cream dessert rounded off a lovely... More

Driving directions make this restaurant hard to reach but the it is well worth the effort. Our Sunday lunch was wonderfully prepared and served in a casual, local style. The pepper mussels were tender and tasty in a not-too-hot thin olive oil and tomato liquid that we soaked up with home-made bread. We each had an al-dente pasta dish including... More

Honestly we chose this restaurant after the one we wished to visit was fully booked but it turned out to be a nice experience with very friendly staff and a good chef. Starters were a mixed grill of seafood and pasta with swordfish and sauce. Both were great but the king prawns in the mixed grill left much to be... More

We were there on a cold night, and were almost the only patrons there, so we felt quite special. The menu had something for everyone, and we all enjoyed our meal. Prices are very reasonable, and the service was excellent.
