We visited Antico Borgo on the Sunday evening of our stay in Letojanni. The place was busy, despite it being the end of winter. After eating here, I can see why. The food was excellent - the best we had during our short stay in the region. The restaurant boasts a proper wood-burning pizza oven, and the results won't disappoint. We shared a Sicilian pizza to start; it was crispy and thoroughly delicious. For mains, I had the seafood risotto and my partner had the gnocchetti. Wow! If you're staying in this quaint seaside resort, or passing through, make sure you eat here. The service was friendly and efficient too. Prego :)

We picked this from Trip Advisor as it was near our hotel in Mazzeo and it didn't disappoint. Despite a slight mix up in the service, which was corrected with no fuss, the food was excellent and the service was attentive and friendly, well above average. The Gnocchetti plate was delicious, and the steak was good, well cooked, and delicious with rocket, parmesan and balsamic vinegar. Well worth a visit for pizza or a more formal meal, with a large outside seating area on the beach.

We have been traveling through Italy for almost a month and the meal that we had in this charming Restaurant was in the top 5 meals that we have had, and certainly the best in Sicily. We are getting tired of overpriced unimaginative meals, but this was the opposite. I had the Ravioli, which had an inspired sauce, and my wife had the tuna, which was also prepared in an imaginative way.

Service was friendly and attentive. All in all, an exceptional experience.

This cosy restaurant is really worth a visit when being in Letojanni. At this place you can get a variety of sicilian dishes and wines. The waitor was very friendly and gave some good advise in selecting wines. We were served the most delicious food there, in fact the most delicious food we had during our entire stay in Sicily. I can strongly recommend this restaurant. The prices are average -but the food is of a very high quality

I was recently in Letojanni with a friend, a bit out of season. We passed by this cosy little restaurant, and decided to give it a try - which we did not regret!
My starter was clams, and they were big, meaty and very well prepared - among the best I've had. For the main, we ordered a pasta Norma and followed the recommendation to make it on Ravioli. It was extremely well made, absolutely fantastic. And in spite of being really full after the main, we did decide to split a tiramisu - our only wish was that we had had better appetite for it, again very well prepared. With the desert, we were offered a small caraffe of limoncello which appeared home-made from the look and delicius taste, served as it should be - straight out of the freezer.

All in all - if you are near this restaurant, don't cheat yourself by passing it by. It was the best food we had all week.
