End of September my husband and I visited this restaurant. As we came on Sunday evening about 9 o'clock it was fully booked und Christina the waitress didn't gave us any chance to get dinner. Suddenly the chef of Trattoria changed her mind and we've got a reservation 1 hour later. And it was worth to wait,delicious food and wine... More

This was the best meal we had during our holidays in Sicily. I tried the pece spada, which was fantastic.

We had lunch there two times and enjoyed both times great food and superb hospitality (while eating with 4 quite noisy kids...). The menu offers even some possibilities for vegetarians (primi piatti only, but these can be supplemented with side offers like parmigiana etc). There is no possibility to sit outdoor, but there is another café with ice cream just... More

Call ahead for a reservation. They have three seating areas but none large and this place is popular. The food was all very fresh, tasty, authentic. Prices were great. We had the alici marinate, polpetti di neonato, zuppa di cozze, mousse di ricotta and great pastas. Very good experience!

We did not have the reservation yet they managed to find a table for us in a very busy night. The owner who served our table was very sweet and though his English wasn't the best he really tried to explain everything in the menu. Service was really good and fast. The food was amazing and the white vine they... More

A very relaxed trattoria, clearly very popular, with people waiting outside for a table. We were asked to return in 30 mins and sat in the outside area at the back, lovely on a warm evening. The food was worth returning for and we tucked into three dishes of fat and delicious strands of busiata (?) pasta with sarde (sardines,... More

If you want good simple genuine Sicilian fresh seafood this is a place you must try out. It's not that easy to find as it is down a narrow side road off the main street. It is very simple inside nothing glamorous but the food is something else, quite outstanding and delicious and the fish is so fresh. They don't... More

My wife and I stumbled on this restaurant the first day we were in Noto, and we were very lucky. We had two pastas (including the "norma") and both were awesome. The owner walks around being friendly and made our meal even more fun.

We've been in Noto for a bout a week and a half now, eating mostly in restaurants, and this is the best. First of all, the food is genuinely satisfying, outstanding tasty Sicilian fare. Then there is the fact that most of the people eating here are Italian. I should not be down on non-Italian tourists, since I am one... More
