We got a friendly welcome on arrival and immediately liked the style and ambience of the place. We were helped to choose a nice bottle of pinot nero. For antipasti we shared the octopus in rich tomato sauce, which was tender and flavoursome. For primi we had pasta with tuna and risotto with shellfish which we both tasty. For secondi... More

This restaurant is in the old town and is tucked down a side street with tables outside the restaurant. The menu is typically Sicilan with plenty of local dishes and locally sourced ingredients. Our seafood starters and main were delicious especially my special which was porcini linguine with shrimps. The wine was also superb as was the service. This place... More

We had a really delicious meal in this family run restaurant. The service was very friendly, the ambiance good and the food authentic sicilian. No frills but delicious.

Ate here on our last night in the beautiful city of Cefalu. The restaurant came highly recommended by local residents. Well worth the praise. Great food (veal involtini was out of this world). Good wine and lovely service.

Good food, spoiled only bu choosing to eat outside - on tables across the very narrow street from the actual restaurant. Beside being a very narrow, cobbled street there was a regular flow of small car and particularly motor scooters passing. This spoiled what otherwise would have been a good evening.

Mid-May we didn't have to book, but I can see it getting busy. Seats are either inside, or outside in one of the old streets of Cefalu. For gluten free travellers in Sicily and visiting Cefalu you should certainly eat here. There is plenty of choice to eat and the 'all Norma' was really full of flavour. As with the... More
