Recommended by our B&B proprietor. There were indeed some Italian patrons who appeared to be regulars, but they sit in a separate section around the corner at the back, and all the tourists are seated at the front. Spaghetti alla gattopardo (spaghetti bake with tomato and eggplant) - 7€: Good, similar to what you'd get in a good rosticceria Involtini... More

I am Sicilian and I could not be happier to bring a friend from oversea and find a place where they cook amazing sicilian food, in a quite traditional way but adding some twist. Do not miss the desserts. When I asked if they were all home made they answered: "All but the Pistachio cous cous... that is made by... More

We were directed here by our B&B proprietor and are glad we were. The wild boar pasta, mentioned before, is magnificent and the ravioli stuffed with goat's cheese also. Service was smooth and quiet and our waiter kept a good eye on all his tables - no long waits. Needs a sign in Via Garibaldi to point to the actual... More

My wife and I shared typical Sicilian dishes including excellent wild boar pasta a mixed grill of various pork meats, salad and canoli for dessert..a nice bottle of wine, water and a grappa for €52. The service was quite good considering two servers worked a fairly large number of tables.

I had a lunch here; a glass of prosecco(sparkling wine), a mix salad, and pasta. The pasta was "Busiate al pesto siciliano", they said it was a typical Sicilian taste. Pistachio powder was on it. Very creamy and tasty. Outside table had a nice view. Staff were friendly and service were great. I can recommend here:-)

This "ex-bakery" isn't the easiest place to find (is anywhere easy in central Agrigento?) but well worth seeking out. Lots of character, both indoors and outside, very enjoyable food, interesting wine list, good prices, lively, informal service, properly Sicilian - just what we wanted.

While walking thru a grungy neighborhood looking for a quick lunch we happened upon this place. Very pleasantly surprised. Quaint little place with exceptional food. Cold beer good wine and great looking deserts. Atmosphere was pleasant with engaging locals. You won't be disappointed.

We arrived late (11.30pm) and they kindly prepared a table. The service was great and the food was greater than average in Sicily.
