This was the meal I was hoping to share with my husband. I studied in Italy a long time ago and remember very fondly the way the program brought us right to the homes of people who were working on farms and making delicious foods. At Agriturismo Tarantola, I got to relive the feeling of being welcomed as if we... More

we stayed at this Agriturismo for one night, but we could easily have stayed there for more! Location: go to Alcamo town, take the CampoReale road, then you will see a sign for Tarantola. take this decent road and then you have the last 300 meters on country road. Setting: the setting cannot be better; an agriturismo/farm in the middle... More

We love everything about Agriturismo Tarantola ! Fillipo the owner is lovely, nothing is too much trouble. From rescuing us with a flat tyre, getting it fixed for us so we can Just enjoy our stay. All organic food, our own private chef whipping up whatever takes our fancy. Taking walks through the vineyards, eating fruit directly off the trees... More

My wife and I with our 3 grown sons just spent 2 beautiful weeks vacationing in Italy. We ended our trip with a cooking class at Agriturismo Tarantola in Alcamo Sicily, about an hour from Palermo. It was by far one of the highlights of our trip. I admit, my heritage is Sicilian, actually from Alcamo which made it all... More

Today my 2 daughters and I took a cooking class at Tarantola Agriturismo. Filippo greeted us as we arrived, and made us feel very welcome to his farm. He is a perfect host, providing water and coffee after a long drive. He guided us to the kitchen and eased us into the cooking easily. I thought the cooking would be... More

What a wonderful surprise this agriturisimo was! From the wandering acres of the vineyard, to the inviting lake, and even the friendly goats, and very attentive staff, every moment was delightful. The meals were delicious and lovingly prepared, and not one was a disappointment. Our rooms were very clean and though, as noted by other reviewers, the WiFi was spotty,... More

If you want a slice of the real Sicily then La Tarantola is for you - great hospitality and delicious traditional food made from the very freshest of ingredients. We had a memorable evening with some new-found American friends learning to cook some Sicilian classics: “pannelle”, “sfincione” (Sicilian pizza), fresh pasta from scratch - mixing and kneading the dough and...

The Vineyard at Taratola! ....what lovely memories! Well, staying here recently made my holiday in Sicily! There was genuine warmth and concern by the staff and owner that everything was as it should be. It was easy going, but well organised. Really nothing was too much trouble as all the staff were genuinely very attentive and welcoming. My Italian was... More
