Our tour group felt quite priveleged to dine here recently. The interior of building itself which also offers B&B accommodation is stunning - transparent flooring in various sections offer glimpses into the wine cellar and a flowing spring; extensive wooden panelling and integration of a courtyard into the structure with a glass roof are delightful. We have a four course... More

Sunday. Early March. Hours spent driving in the amazing Sicilian countryside. 2.30 pm and still many km ahead. We decide to pull over and look for somewhere to grab a bite. All restaurants seemed closed - well, it's technically still winter - and we were losing faith. We decide to park the car and continue on foot. It was about... More

Adriana and Damiano will immediately make you feel welcome in this gem of a place in Montallegro. A unique find in this locality, you will be very pleasantly surprised by the up market finish of both the hotel, but also the exquisitely prepared food by Damiano and his team. We have visited Capitolo more than once now and we have... More

This must be the 10th time or so that we have been to Damiano and Adriana's amazing Capitolo Primo. This must sincerely be one of the best restaurants in Sicily. Very particular and creative cuisine. Hats off Damiano and Adriana for being wonderful hosts and creating such a magical ambience complimented with divine food and warm hosting.

We stayed 6 nights in the B&B (Relais Bruccia) which is to be found in the same house and run by the same owners like the restaurant Capitolo Primo. We had all our dinners in the restaurant. Damiano is an excellent cook who knows to interpret traditional Sicilian dishes in a modern manner. He captures all the flavours of the... More

Restaurant and hotel were recommended by Sicilian friends and I will be indebted to them for this. After a career spanning over 20 years in the hotel and restaurant industry (and still actively in it) the comments that I have to make are that the accommodation is truly remarkable, and the dining experience outstanding. With respec to the latter, it... More

Friendly and professionnal reception, Exceptionnal house in a typical village. With fantastic Sicilian cuisine. we had a delicious menu gourmet with different fish, and a fantastic "chocolat moelleux" Wine card with a excellent choice of Sicilian wines. Large and beautiful decorated rooms, all with whirlpool. The place to be !

It was certainly brave of the owners to invest in a property in Montallegro, not the most charming Sicilian village, a couple of miles from the coast (which in Sicily is just a couple too many) and over half an hour drive from Agrigento and its Valley of Temples. We haven't tried the hotel but the palace where it’s located... More
