Was informed that its the best fish restaurant around. Over 15 starting plates and if your stomach has enough space then you can take the first, second etc.. Better reserve. Limited places.

Just returned from Il Sakalleo having visited on the recommendation of a friend. I can added little to the great list of reviews other than to say that it is our intention to return at least once before our holiday is over. Fabulous! Ad for the bad reviews: what is wrong with these people? "They only serve raw fish?" WRONG.... More

We came through this restaurant almost by chance, but it was really a discovery. We had lunch and come back for dinner the same day. The personnel is nice and friendly and the food is superb, probably the best marinated fish ever tried. One of the best sea food restaurant in Sicily!

We drove over an hour to have dinner at this restaurant after hearing great reviews by friends. Il Sakalleo did not disappoint at all. The friendly family run restaurant serves up fresh seafood. The menu changes daily. Our waitress was delightful and efficient. The interesting pastas were cooked properly and not tired a re-hash of "Sicilian" menus. The home-made pistachio... More

Typical Sicilian restaurant serving a good range of food. Wine selection was also very good. Arriving there after 8pm was not an issue and although we did not book, a table was quickly prepared.

I was taken there by family who eat here whenever they visit Sicily at lunch time and you get about 12 different courses of seafood and fish depending what is available (from the port just around the corner), either raw or cooked; we had the latter. Although personally not very fond of fish, the seafood and fish was all fresh... More

From the local fishermen to the plate, dishes after dishes of fresh seafood and fishes, you will experience and discover seafood that you would not have anywhere else. The true and warm personality of the owner will add to the taste a local color of tradition. Don't ask for meat, only product from the sea are served :-). An experience... More

This place- discovered by coincidence- was just the most amazing gastronomic experience we had recently - you must know this place is not at all putting signs to be found- and if you do not speak italian- you might get wrong indications- well it is situated in the little square of the town, and there is no huge entrance as...

They did not ask what I wanted, just if raw or not. Then they just imagined what I liked and brought it. A succesion of fish plates that did not seem to end. And should not have. I imagine they looked at me and guessed very right. Enjoyed talking to owner, daughter, son in law, neighbouring tables... Their wine list... More

It was already 3 years ago staying at Donnafugata resort that the staff recommended us to eat here. I was put off by the restaurant and the table very close to a toilette. The service was unprofessional (difficult to communicate with the young waiter even if one of us is native Italian speaker) and we didn't really know what to... More
