Delicious!

The concept is quite simple - you eat whatever is given to you and you decide when to stop or move on. First go raw starters, then a variety of warm starters, then, if you are still up to it, pasta. And then, I suppose, the main course, but as we were unable to move, we only asked for a... read more

Two friends dined together with myself and my husband at Il Sakalleo at the end of April. We did not have a booking but were able to get a table anyway. We were not quite sure what to expect and were only offered the set ‘tasting menu’. There was no written menu and the only questions we were asked was... More

Super lunch. We went for a late lunch and it was great. The dishes keep coming and coming so go very hungry. The service is excellent the fish fest delicious and the price very very reasonable. This was our second visit and hopefully we will be back soon.

We went to this restaurant because we had received positive feedback and I had already been there once many years ago. Well I have to admit that we weren't disappointed by our choice. The food is very nice. The formula they propose is basically no " menu a la carte" : the dinner starts with a selection of cold and... More

During summer, friends of mine who cross over with their boats to Sicily all recommend a restaurant in Scoglitti where the seafood is excellent and of the highest quality. As this year we were touring near Scoglitti, we decided to visit the restaurant for Sunday lunch. On arrival to Scoglitti I imagined that there was only one restaurant in this... More

The owner of our hotel (Casina di Grotta di Ferro) recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Pasquale greeted us, chose our wine, shared some of our wine and then we were served some of the most delicious seafood and fresh fish. All absolutely fresh and full of flavour. The plates just carried on arriving with delicacies both cooked... More

Scoglitti is a little town close to the sea. It's a typical south sicilian sea village, very full in summer time, and almost empty during all the year. This are the places so famous due to Mr Montalbano, long and clean beaches, where you can walk for hundreds meters watching the sea. In the center of the town, everybody knows... More

The restaurant came highly recommended by friends who had visited and wow, were they right! The Il Sakalleo is situated just off the main square in the village and is nothing special to look at inside or out. Our group of 7 booked for dinner. We were greeted by the padrone and shown to our table in the upstairs dining... More
