The Vicoletto is a small room but of character, the right place for a choice of quality and definitely never boring. The kitchen is full of great flavors, the perfect combination of traditional foods, absolutely fresh and first quality, has combined expertise with a warm atmosphere, the elegance of the details with the foods, flavors and wines expertly researched. Really interesting gastronomic proposals that favor the Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine in general; the dishes are made with seasonal products that are matched carefully to the catch of the day, personally chosen by the owners. Really very original, with a touch of elegance and yet informal restaurant that makes Al Vicoletto the ideal place to spend a pleasant evening with friends over good and juicy dish.

As described in the previous reviews, it's a small place with less than 10 tables, inside a narrow vicoletto (small alley way) in the center. Very friendly young stuff, multilingual, short menu that changes every day,depending what fresh products they get for the day. Mostly pasta with/and sea food. Antipasto misto siciliano was incredible and very filling. Large portions of... More

The restaurant was offering a different menu every day, which is a lot of pressure on the kitchen. However , the meal was great so the kitchen is coping well. It is not only excellent food and service but also really good value. I chose the house white, a bottle of very good Grillo for 8 Euros. I had a... More

We were spolit for choice but I eventually decided to try the peppered mussels as a starter, followed by a shared home made pasta trapenese and a grilled... More

This restaurant is hidden away in an alley. Daniele is very friendly and will recommend all the freshest dishes. Stick to his recommendations and you cannot go wrong - fresh fish, perfect pasta, delicious deserts - a truly lovely experience.

We had a superb meal consisting of local delicacies. Apart from a salad, I had a "couscous con pesce" and my wife had an octopus stew. Both were superb and the price was not prohibitive at all.

Pleasant dinig room with tables well spaced Generous portions and hearty food Service OK Average wine Italian patrons appear to order better dishes than I did. Mussels were very good but my mackerel was drowning in olive oil and tomatoes destroying its own savor. Nice atmosphere altogether..

Went here with high expectations because of excellent tripadvisor reviews. Should have listened to our B&B hostess....every course was not more than average. Started with tasteless seafood, pasta was overdone (most probably not freshly cooked but re-heated), swordfish too thin (cooked from frozen?). I guess this restaurant gets a bit lazy from all these excellent reviews...
