Below average pizza

We went to Al Viccoletto for lunch because most other restaurants were closed due to the off-season. The pizza here was below average even by US standards, which puts it far below average for Sicilian standards. Ingredients did not taste fresh.

Had a pizza here. it was OK but not excellent. The staff wasn't very serviceminded in my opinion but not too bad. I don't recommend the place but if you can't find anything else this can work.

Looking for a place to lunch in Cefalu we found this small, family owned, restaurant in a small alley (vicoletto). A charming Sicilian decor salon along with delicious tidbits was enough to entertain us while waiting for the courses (first, second and desert). Very good food and service made our experience unforgettable.

Starters were a little basic but main courses were good. Recommend the pizza. 2 starters 2 mains and 2 house wines for fifty euro. Relaxed atmosphere

This restaurant is located in a nice alley just off the main piazza in Cefalu. We passed it the night before and decided to return for a meal on our last night. The service was swift and the menu has a good selection of pasta, meats, fish and pizza, but we found the food quite bland and a bit disappointing.... More

Al Vicoletto is a wonderful family restaurant (very close to the Duomo Square) where you are treated very well. The food is excellent and the service good, thanks to the young waiter, Leonardo. The restaurant's owner, the old host, is a charming person. You should definitely ask him to sing "Volare". You will enjoy his fascinating voice together with good... More

Sorry to say not happy at all with the pizza served probably out of the freezer. After saying we did not enjoy not even the effort to say sorry can we offer you something as a noble gesture. I will certainly not recommend to anybody.

No atmosphere, stressed impatient waiting staff and my meal was tasteless and cold... When I complained there was no apology but they did offer to cook something else, when the bill came I questioned being charged in full for a meal I couldn't eat as well as a €2 cover fee and the waitress became very rude! When we left... More

This place is just around the corner from the Piazza Duomo, but still in very quiet and cozy little street. Tables are placed on the steps of the street. We had just lasagna and pizza, but it was more than fine. They are obviously famous about their pizzas since waited for it a bit longer since 80% of the guests... More
