We had an amazing three course meal at Ciciulena. I had the vegetarian options, a gazpacho with beautiful mozzarella, a lovely pasta and a decadent chocolate mousse with berries. The staff were friendly and the vertical garden and restaurant decor is great. Definitely great for a special occasion or just for a lovely dinner.

We went here for lunch today and what a delight it was. If you want delicious Sicilian food and welcoming service this is the place to go. The restaurant deco is modern and fun, with a gorgeous vertical garden. For starters we had "street food" and the anchovies pie; main squid ink spaghetti and rabbit ragu tagliatelle. All were amazing... More

We went to this restaurant by chance and really enjoyed the experience. We had the set three course meal which was well portioned and balanced. The local wine was lovely. The service was excellent in a pleasant modern decor. It was well worth €90 for two including wine water and bread. V and p Ireland.

Based on previous TripAdvisor reviews on the restaurant’s ability to cater to vegetarians, I visited this place twice for dinner. The service was excellent on both occasions (although this might be because there was a small number of customers present). The staff spoke good English and they were flexible in compiling dishes to suit my dietary requirements. The standard €2... More

The mixed appetizer plate was the star of the meal...delicious artichokes, eggplant, shrimp and several other small dishes, all done quite well. The main dishes were a huge disappointment by comparison. The seafood lasagna was dry and tasteless, as if made several days earlier. The broadbean purée sour was more successful, although quite bland, the restaurant is trying to be... More

Excellent Sicilian food, prepared fresh. Limited menu means they focus on quality. A bit pricey for lunch, but hey...I'm on vacation. Great service, including suggestions for am afternoon of wine tasting. Highly recommend to those who enjoy food!

I ate here with my husband, friend, and her two toddlers. The staff was extremely welcoming and went above and beyond to please us and the children! Great food and wine recommendations with timely service as well. Very engaging and friendly waiter who spoke perfect English. Also, we had the cheesecake for dessert and it was hands down better than... More

It was raining hard, I was hungry and I just went in this lovely restaurant. I ordered lasagne with cod and potatoes, and a glass of red Sicilian wine. The food was lovely, the service very good, and nicely decorated.
