Great food, reasonable prices

I had the seafood grill, which was great; watch for the whole shrimp with its head, the norm for Sicily. Best bean soup! Swift service, fair prices.

A very promising beginning with lots of people there and an amiable waiter. Our main courses (we both had prawns) were good and the house white wine alright though a somewhat off-putting colour. However service then simply ceased while the waiter chatted to customers in the other room.Having waited, perplexed, for ages we finally gave up on dolci or coffee.... More

We stumbled into this gem after a frustrating drive looking for parking. The antipasti plate had 10 different items, all were great. Ravioli and linguine with pesto and pine nuts were both great. Great lunch place for sure. Priced reasonably.

Followed the LP advice and tries this place. Nice spot my the cathedral steps. Friendly staff but very slow. Antipasti plate very generous and nice enough. Nothing outstanding but pretty good food at an ok price considering the location

We stopped at Al Buco for lunch on a day trip to Noto. The food was excellent. We shared the antipasti to start which was amazing - the flavours were just gorgeous. We then had calamari and an onion and tomato salad for main and again it was so tasty. The way the salad was dressed made it taste absolutely... More

I ordered Sicilian salad which was an interesting mix of orange, tomato, lettuce, black olives and cheese. Decent salad but nothing to write home about. My wife had the prawn penne and had the same reaction. Looking around the fish and the ravioli that other people were having looked good. Decent service.

This is a very central situated restaurant in Noto. The food and service level is not memorable. I would recommend to choose a different restaurant. The meat should be avoided completed as is of low quality.

We dined here last Saturday night. Noto was a buzz of activity and the location could not have been better. The service from the start was efficient and courteous. The lovely young waiters spoke limited English but was very accommodating and had the a fantastic service attitude. Our meals were wonderful starting with the antipasti plates. We opted for both...

This restaurant is placed in a beautiful spot of Noto. A true taste of sicilian barocco. The food is nice, the service efficient and the price ok. It definitely deserve a try.
