This is the best place to learn about native Sicilian plants for the garden and kitchen. The staff are knowledgeable and the owner is a botanist. There is a connection to the wonderful Satra restaurant in Scicli (that's another review!) I have purchased all my plants for the garden at gli Aromi.

Enrico is the star of the show here but of course the plants are a mix of familiar smells, tastes, names and appearance but there are suprises at every turn. I emailed and got a prompt invite to an evening tour on my mobile. . Very slick! So I will never look at a jar of capers in the same... More

We went there without having an appointment nd appreciated the warm and friendly atmosphere! We were shown the herbs, fruits etc. and learned a lot! The products are great and the view is perfect. Next time we will make an appointment to be able to attend the fruit tour or cooking show. Mille grazie!!!

For 15€/person you will have a guided tour of the different grown aromatics plants. A light meal is included. You're not allowed to walk around freely. Quite friendly staff. The tour might seem long for young children, although they are invited to touch and smell various aromatics plants.

We arrived and Enrico took us on a tour of the farm. He is full of knowledge about his plants, enthusiasm for his farm and what he does. It is a beautiful place, with well tended plants, all aromatics and herbs. There is a tall greenhouse that houses papaya, mango and banana trees as well, all loaded with fruit. Enrico's... More

A great morning with the entertaining Enrico Russino in his beautiful aromatic gardens, filled with wonderful plants and herbs. A real treat to see Sicily's plant range tended so beautifully and enthusiastically. Good luck with your future projects Enrico!

We just stopped by on a whim. We probably should have called but it was a last minute thing. Enrico was happy to share his story and place with us. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and helpful. We purchased a few items on our way out and he seemed grateful that we would. highly recommend an hour or so... More
