Enjoyable

Everything was lovely except for the Bruchetta, bread was to hard. The mixed starter was delicious, especially the courgette and aubergine. Some lovely Sicilian wines that were not overpriced. Very friendly staff.

We ate here o 4 occasions throughout our holiday to Noto in Sicily. The food was fantastic. We had a sharing platter of antipasti which I think is their regional dish called Caponata which has aubergines, couscous, peppers, tomatoes etc which are slow cooked. Bruschetta is also served with it. We had it for 2 people and it is nearly... More

2 of us had the pistachio pesto pasta which was delicious1 we also had their tomato salad which was simple, fresh and tasty. food was reasonable but agree that the own beer was expensive and not that special. BTW- don't understand why this is classified as Mexican, when menu was mostly italian cuisine

We were in Noto for the Infiorata - the annual flower festival that attracts seemingly thousands of people and this cantina is on one of the streets that becomes a floral work of art. There is a museum above it - the family home of the owners - and we had the privilege of eating our lunch in one of... More

Stopped there for lunch. Great antipasti. Not cheap but quality was there. Nothing to complain except a beer at 11€. Local one and ok quality but that price is just tourists rubbery!

We got exactly what we wanted. We were looking for a light lunch and they suggested the tasting starter for 2 people at 15 Euros - delicious, with a glass or two of their own wine, A cantina is a winery so they only sell their own wines. It was OK, nothing special, good plonk. There are photos of the... More

We asked for menu for lunch, the waiter said they had no menu, instead he suggested a big plate of antipasto for 2. This was indeed a big portion for 2, but it was cold, not tasty at all with cous cous tasting even old. We ate somethingof that food unwillingly, paid their bill and left unhappy. We would naturally... More

Just back from a week long trip with family to Sicily. Traveled all around the island. Happened to go to this place by chance and it was my best meal in Sicily. Limited choice but very delicious and authentic. Grilled vegetable antipasti plus Sardines for main course. Would definitely go back and highly recommend it. Not sure why not everyone... More

We wished we hadn't eaten here - it felt like a tourist trap and the menu was incredibly limited and the food poor. I had a potato salad that tasted old and veal that was tough. Beautiful location, but really I wouldn't recommend it for a meal.
