Description: Since 1976 we welcome our guests near the historic medieval Castle of Caccamo (Sicily), a few minutes from Termini Imerese and only 30 minutes from Palermo. More than thirty years have passed and our menu still features dishes that rediscover ancient flavors. We offer appetizers, first and main courses made with genuine products, and mouth-watering desserts, all accompanied by an excellent selection of Sicilian wines, with labels carefully chosen to suit all tastes. You can also choose from a wide variety of pizzas with quality ingredients, like mozzarella fior di latte, stracciatella, burrata and local meats. Our pizza makers have had success in several national competitions and are the proud inventors of the "Pizzotto" a variation on the pizza. We have attended AIC courses to be able to serve gluten-free pizzas and dishes. We also offer vegetarian dishes. We're very proud of to be mentioned in the prestigious guides Osterie of Italy by Slow Food Editore, Lonely Planet Sicily, the Italian Touring Club, La Gola in Travel(AliceTv) and the Restaurant Guide by Il Sole 24 Ore for the quality of our dishes. The Italian Hospitality mark is another important recognition of the quality and professionalism of our service. Ristorante pizzeria A Castellana is also an Ethno-Anthropological Museum of ancient civilization. On the walls of our restaurant you’ll see many tools and accessories once used by Sicilian peasants many, many years ago. Visit our museum.

We have eaten for dinner. Every meal was good and fresh . The antipasti was very fresh and tasty. My wife has taken the sausage and it was excellent with a lot of herbs inside. I have taken the swordfish from the grill and a nice orange salad . Everything was good

We gave this place three genuine tries to be good, and were disappointed or worse each time. The first was our first full day in Caccamo, we visited for lunch, it was our table of two and one table of four that was getting ready to leave in the entire place. The waiter was brusque and impersonal, a sharp contrast... More

Food and menu were OK, geared to tourists. Menu features German and English translation, very helpful. Service was not the best - staff seemed a bit dour, but it is possible we caught them on an off-day. (The few times that we ate here). Overall however, it was not bad. Convenient location, open most hours (many places shut for afternoon... More

Given the lousy weather, we followed the advice of our host and we had dinner here. Big place, very busy. All waiters must have been in a competition to see who's the most unpleasant. Ours is going to win, he was so nice and happy and we liked him as much as toothache. Food was basically being served while we... More

Ate here on our last day of our holiday . Most probably it was the best and cheapest meal during our stay in Sicily. Amazing the traditional Sicilian antipasti and the pastas. Very tasteful the mixed grill. Excellent services as well. Our waiter, if not mistaken Giovanni, was very patient waiting for us explaining the kids what was on the... More

In the grain cellars of the castle, with panoramic views of the surrounding hills and landscape, this restaurant turns out simple, delicious, very reasonably priced Sicilian favorites. The fixed price meal is large enough for two, and more than worth the price. Everything we had was really good to excellent. Decor is very homey/country, adding to the funky cellar ambiance....

The restaurant opens up into an Aladdin's Cave with historical farming items tastefully arranged on the walls and ceiling. There is a large menu and the food is something special.

We ate here several times over a two week period between May and June, the restaurant is popular with locals which is always a good sign, and has a fantastic menu. The pizza kitchen and oven are right in the dining area, where you can watch pizzas being traditionally made, and cooked in the wood fired oven. Every meal we... More
