We had two quick meals here on our holiday – the place is in a good location if you are staying at the nearby hotels and it's nice and easy to step in to the covered terrace. The inside is nicely decorated in a modern style, and the staff is very friendly. Food wise I recommend sticking to the pasta... More

The cannelloni was cold, the bolognese was tasteless. The cotelleta milanese was so thin you would need to search for the meet...getting the heated cannelloni back took forever...

Opposite the Hilton hotel, a friendly staff made our family feel very welcome. Good choice of food for lunch or evening meals. Always well cooked and tasty. Reasonably priced. Free WiFi.

right opposite the hotel, well priced, really friendly and welcoming and offered gluten free menu - including pasta and pizza - made our trip to Sicily very special.

We went here for a dinner due to many nice words we have read about this restaurant, and most of them came true. The biggest impression is how good we felt during our time at Sikelia, the owner Roberto was very pleasant and welcoming, the rest of the staff was not different too, it felt like being at the restaurant...

The chips were burnt and the oil used tasted as it had not been changed in a year. The palermitana cotoletta was too thin and overcooked. The owner's dog kept barking all the time and it was very annoying. Two waiters were chopping tomatoes for the kitchen to be put on bruchettas or similar raw dishes and they were not... More

Reading the previous reviews, it seems that this is the preferred caterer for the Hilton guests across the street. It was our case too! Roberto, the owner is paying a lot of attention to his customers, and the food is great! I recommend the Etna pasta and the Zu Saru spaghetti. Just go there and you'll eat something nice. By... More
