Its slightly dearer than other places nearby, but the service & food certainly makes up for that. The delicious ingredients, combined with quality cooking ensure you are served up a wonderful dining experience. The wine - OMG, Amazing! I've never tasted such a delicious white in my life, each sip was like a holiday in your mouth, can't remember the... More

L'Incontro was recommended by our villa owner and we went before going onto a concert. It was a last minute booking but a table was found for us in this very busy restaurant and we immediately felt part of the family - everyone was so friendly. The food was delicious Sicilian recipes and the wine suggestion perfect. I wish we'd... More

Yes, it is a little pricey, but it was the best meal of our trip. The service is incredible as the owners actually enjoy you being there. You dont feel like a tourist and you feel appreciated. They are genuinely nice, but more importantly, the food is just awesome. The frutta di mare set the tone, but you cant go... More

Sent here by our Villa Carlotta folks. Owner is darling. His staff amazing. Very helpful team when looking for specific food and wine recommendations. We wanted authentic Sicilian food and this was what we got. Locals and a few tourists. Place is small but not tiny. Enjoyed immensely the whole experience. Arrived early for our 9pm, table ready in less... More

I wandered in to L'incontro by chance - the outside is rather modest. A table was found for me and I was made to feel very welcome, not always the case for a solo diner. The food was delicious - a very fresh and crunchy salad and a salmon dish cooked to perfection. The house white wine was also lovely... More

We came here our last night in Scicily. The service was excellent. Our server talked to us about the wine and was very patient in trying to figure out what we would like by the glass. The food was very good(seafood salad and pasta), but maybe we have just had so many good meals that I am unable to say... More

Both had pasta, one was the gnocchi with shrimps and pistachio, delicious! Really tasted homemade. A shame we didnt book prior as we couldnt have a table on the terrace. Very good service too

We have read the reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disapointed at all. The stuffed swordfish rolls were delicious! My girlfriend had the gnocchi with pistacio and shrimps, also very well! The housewine was of good quality. Too bad we didn't had room for the desert, so we have to come back, because they looked delicious as well. Molto... More

With so many restaurants to choose from Trip Adviser brought is here. Sadly a Sunday evening walk in did not get us a table as the restaurant was fully booked so we booked for a couple of nights later and enjoyed it so much we came back again for our final night. Now it is fair to say that from... More

We selected this venue from various reviews on Tripadvisor and so glad we did. We booked, as recommended, at lunchtime for that evening and were rewarded with table for 2 on the terrace. Tony greeted us by name as we entered the restaurant which was a lovely touch. Great recommendations from Debbie re food and wine; regrettably we couldn't quite... More
