We had been recommended this restaurant from a Sicilian friend. We had an excellent dinner in a nice atmosphere with perfect service. We can recommend it to others and we would like to get back if we visit Sicily again. We found the food more like an Europe dinner than typically Sicilian. It was very tasty and the wine from...

A bit out of the way, exceptional internal setting, a very attentive, polite and up to date head waiter, intimate feel service, you are given a description of what you are eating, a never ending wine list, exquisite cuisine, top chef (owner). Food was simply great! A bit pricey but worth the money spent, every cent.

We had not intended to lunch at Al Fogher, but when it was given a strong recommendation by the owner of our hotel in Piazza Armerina, we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the recommendation. Was it an off day? I do not think so. Every dish was flawed in some way. It... More

We weren't too pleased to find the restaurant empty on a saturday eve but it turned out to be the best dining experience we ever had. The food is divine and the service impeccable. We can't wait to go back.

We showed up very late at this lovely spot along the way (or admittedly, a bit out of the way) from Palermo to Siracusa. We were the only ones in the restaurant, and too late for the tasting menu, but the courses we did take were all delicious. I had a simple meal of grilled vegetables, which despite its simplicity...

I wrote in my journal when I got back to the hotel: "fabulous meal -- tasting menu and lovely rosato wine. Seven courses. The chef came to greet us before and after the meal. For the first hour and a half (7:30-9 p.m.), we were the ONLY people in the restaurant. A party of 5 (4 adults and one child)... More

We spent a lovely evening at Al Fogher. Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and inventive food. The quail main course was outstanding as was the home made pasta. The three part seafood appetizer, sequencing from hot to warm to cold and then ending with a granita, was a delight. Excellent value. We'd go back if we were staying another night

Location is not an issue. Staff were efficient and engaging. Even the celebrated Chef (Angelo Treno) came to the table to say hello. Comprehensive and reasonably priced wine list. Accomplished and well presented dishes, from amuse bouche to dessert. It's more expensive that the other local restaurants but it's not expensive for fine dining. Best meal we had during our... More

I know many people love this place and rave about the food. My friend and lunch mate loved the ambience, the service and food. I, on the other hand was not as impressed. The food was clearly prepared well before the meal and lacked freshness. Odd combinations abound. The wait staff try too hard to impress and act formal. The... More

This is a restaurant for special occasions and it delivers a really special treat. Don't be put off by the location - once inside you are transported to a farmhouse with AMAZING food that could cost twice as much in the big city and still be good value. Every course is special - the headline costs look high for Piazza... More
