Ottima esperienza, ottimo prezzo

We definitely recommend a visit to this Trattoria, which serves nice sicilian food at really cheap prices. We had two pasta (Norma and Pistacchio e vongole) and a frittura: everything was super!

The 'fritto di paranza' was the first course l tried and also the best business card of the quality of the rest of our menu in this cosy place. Not big inside high quality food and very humble bill. At the end of the meal we enjoyed some comments with the chef lady and a lovely short conversation with Corrado,... More

Well, actually food is very good and service excellent but we were very disappointed when, after having paid for our meal, we discovered that the owner had issued a receipt for 0 euro. We work, pay taxes and expect anyone else to do the same: it is the right thing to do! We understand that the economy in Italy is... More

Ate here for lunch as a few other places were closed. Should have been our first choice! A delicious meal with good service and value.

Visited here five times. When we booked for dinner during one day I asked if they had artichokes. That evening, I had artichokes. The food was of optimum quality, the atmosphere convivial and ALWAYS busy not only with visitors but locals. Can't wait to go back. Corrado, his wife the cook, his daughter and all the staff are lovely people.

Had a wonderful lunch with very tasty and fresh homemade food. Try their version of seafood polpettoni and parmiggiana.

Small Italian restaurant hidden in the centre of Noto. I was recommended to eat there by some local friends and I was pleased with the option. The quality of the food and the value cannot be beaten - if you want to go for a no-frill decent meal, i would recommend the place.

Apparently seems to be the most famous Noto restaurant as everyone knows it. Make sure you book it in advance. Food eaten here was great. Maybe portions are too big expecially the pasta. I had the one with pesto al pistachio and seems too much comparing with the sauce. I was impressed but the kindness of the staff

On arrival we were impressed by the smart decor and nice atmosphere of this place. A friendly waitress took our order. We shared a mixed antipasti, then we shared pasta with clams and prawns, everything was really flavoursome. For secondi my husband had steak in peppercorn sauce which was tasty and tender. I had beef slices with porcini mushrooms but... More

If you go to Noto make sure to book this restaurant! I had the shrimps with orange as starter and the beef with mushrooms for main. It was both delicious and make sure you order the vegetables with parmazan cheese as side dish, it's finger linking good. My girlfriend recommends the risotto with seafood. And from my neighbors I heard... More
