We had the swordfish with tomatoes and olives at La Botte, and it was so good we had to go and eat it again another night. The second time we had a lovely three course meal with prosecco, excellent wine and grappa. Everything was perfect. The service is also very, very good and kind. Can truly recommend this place!

5 of us looking for lunch arrived 10 mins before opening time but we were welcomed to use the WC and get a table. I had the seafood risotto which was delicious, one of the best ever.

Sadly the weather has not been kind to us during our stay in Cefalu but to make up for the rain we had a delicious lunch here in this family fun restaurant. My husband tired the spaghetti Vongole which he said was outstanding. Friendly service and value for money

This is an amazing family run restaurant. You must book in advance as when we turned up they were fully booked for the evening and only had availability at 10pm the next day. We had difficulty in deciding on what to eat so decided to share most courses. Everything was freshly cooked and really reasonably priced. Its a must!

Good Italian food, good location but questionable service, only one waiter available to take orders. If you can put up with that go and enjoy the food.

Being a foodie I asked the locals for their own ranking of restaurants in Cefalu. La Botte was one of them. I booked and went over. Situated in one of the side streets to the main street it was a quick find because of signage at the beginning of the side street in question. Our reserved table was on the... More

After wandering the streets on a very hot day, we consulted our guide book and found this gem of a restaurant very near the centre of old Cefalu. Basic but excellently presented food with great service. They have a good selection on the menu and had a specials list which I chose from, having the pasta with seafood which is... More

We went there because of good reviews in our guide. It looked quite nice and the staff seemed really helpful but the menu is nothing more than classic tourist dishes in Cefalu: pasta, seafood and swordfish. You need to prepare for long waiting if you're visiting later in the evening.

At the beginning I didn't found it appropriate for a nice diner. It's location is on a nardis street. I was affrading of the trafik. But the organization of tables and the politeness of the stuff was inviting you. We decided to go. At the end of the night, it was very good night, very delicious food and nice Sicilian... More
