Beautiful restaurant featuring delicious local cuisine

October is mushroom season in Sicily, so naturally I started dinner with the special antipasto -- porcini. Faced with a choice of uncooked and fried, I decided to have both and was presented with two generous portions. What an incredible taste treat.

We were recommended this place and had the best meal we've had so far in Sicily, a welcome surprise after the so-so meal in Siracusa and some average meals in Noto. We ordered the antipasti for 2 and what made the dish even more enjoyable was hearing Lydia describe all the local specialties we were about to taste. We also... More

Went to this restaurant for our first meal in Sicily and were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service first class. We started with an anti pasta for two which had about eight different dishes including ricotta, two other cheeses, two types of meat, fried quails egg on fried potato, rice balls, sausage meat and onions in a...

Scrigno's chef creates great food. The antipasti was perhaps 13 Euro for 2, and each piece was exquisite: quail's egg with puréed potato, savory flan with fave, veal carpaccio, meatballs in wine, etc (8 or 9 total). Then homemade pastas with seafood or mushrooms or boar, all scrumptious. Then grilled whitefish or prawns, perfectly cooked with oils and herbs. Home... More

We visited Lo Scrigno 3 times in 2 weeks and each time we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome, the excellent food and the attention given to us although the place was crowded by local people, which created the atmosphere we were looking for in Sicily.

We happened here following Tripadvisor recomendations. Indeed, it is excellent in every aspect. We have tried a couple of cheese-based antipasti and two first courses. Wow is a correct word, one of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

This is a Trip advisor find. I knew we were to pass through Palazzolo on the way home from the walk and swim In Pantalica and so I consulted the list of bests in the city and this restaurant ranked #1. We were guided to the front door by a very gracious local who told us to follow him all... More
