Our Best Meal in Cefalu

We had a beautiful dinner at LaBotte. It was perfectly prepared and the nicest servers. You can tell it is a family run restaurant because of the pride taken in delivering a quality meal. The wine list was good and the final check was very fair.

Great Sicilian cuisine and the waiters are outstanding. The settting is warm and inviting and you never feel like a tourist.

We first went for lunch on a Friday in early March and from our first steps in the door we knew we had found a great place. It was lovely. From the attentiveness of our waiter to the beautifully set up restaurant this place was comfortably impressive. I had the special which was a ravioli scampi with a light curry... More

The antipasto of cod/leek/potato was outstanding, delicious, and the plain, simple steak was excellent too. Unfortunately, the ravioli dish of the day - with scampi sauce - was not to my taste, too creamy, but that is just bad luck I think. The waiting staff were excellent, very friendly. What made this restaurant average was our table (and the price).... More

If you are looking for a true Sicilian dining experience with a little twist, then La Botte is the place to eat. Hidden in a small side street in an old bakery, the restaurant has been refurbished in true Sicilian style, maintaining the beautiful stand stone arches of the antique building. The service is exceptional! The restaurant is completely family... More

Located on one of those tiny alley-type streets perpendicular to the main street and the street near the water, this restaurant offers the quintessential Italian al fresco dining experience. Inside is bustling and noisy, but out in the tiny street, you can have an intimate conversation, interrupted occasionally by a car or moped going by your table. We didn't mind... More

Momma, Papa, two sons and one daughter all combine to make this a successful dining experience -- on non-descript street but worth the search. Good food and wine and friendly service equal nice evening.

La Botte was one of our pricier meals in Cefalu but well worth it since we got an expertly grilled and breaded swordfish and lovely appetizers. The happy chef even posed for a photo (see here) at the end of the night.

We were referred here by a local shop owner who said it was the best around and it did not disappoint. The fish dishes were excellent, particularly the grilled sea bass secondi and the cod fish/leak/potato appetiser. After fending off the multiple offers of local Sicilian wine, we ended up with a brilliant bottle of french Pinot noir from la... More

It is well known that Cefalu doesn't have a great reputation for its restaurants, but we found La Botte friendly and we had a good meal - not outstanding but certainly our best in this town.
