Wonderful local restaurant

We visited this lovely local restaurant with another couple while vacationing in Sicily. We tried the restaurant based on the advice of a resident of Noto. It was located in a courtyard and could be a little hard to find if it were not for a sign in the street. The staff were very attentive and... read more

We stopped here for lunch and ordered two pasta dishes and a salad. The sauces on the pasta were gloppy and the ingredients were very poor quality. Without a doubt some of the worst food I've experienced in my life. Every other restaurant that we have been to in Noto the food has been very good to outstanding and we... More

The owner of the apartment we rented in Noto said that we MUST eat at Trattoria Ducezia. He was right - where the locals go. Honestly, I do not understand why tourists insist on eating on the main pedestrian drags where the food is generally poor and overpriced (no repeat business; why bother). It is certainly that way were we... More

We are staying in a villa near Modica me visited Noto today. The restaurants on the Main Street were a turnoff because I generally distrust any places that have pictures of their food on a sandwich board outside, so I asked a local and he recommended this place only a couple blocks away. We ordered a seafood antipasti and it... More

This hidden tucked away place is where the locals come. Don't go to the tourist traps on the Main Street. The octopus and all the seafood was fresh, super tasty and delightfully prepared.

Despite we asked whether they had fresh seafood (it was on a Monday) and the answer was YES, we had the impression everything was either defrosted or old -too much seasoned. Mixed seafood starter: super oily. Impossible to taste the octopus as covered in pistachio cream and oil. Ravioli: what was the filling? sauce with very tiny prawns and CREAM... More

Even though the restaurant was full, the service was very quick and our waitress very kind. Sadly our food wasn't great and not as fresh as we expected. Overall below the average.

On arrival the staff outnumbered the diners but the restaurant soon got really busy. The decor was simple and rustic. We asked for prosecco but they didn't have it so we had a carafe of house wine which was drinkable. To start we had the mixed antipasti which was a tasty selection, and huge. Then we had pasta with lamb... More

This is a restaurant that is large and lively with many families. When in Sicily near the coast I recommend eating seafood. Steak is not a local product, and you are likely to be disapointed. My friends had the swordfish, and the mixed fried fish dish and liked it a lot. I had pasta with sea urchin (seasonal). really tastes... More
