My friend and I arrived at the restaurant with no reservation. We were looking very scruffy with shorts and flip flops. Pino opened the door and we asked if lunch was available and luckily for us there was a table. Food was exemplary and service was brilliant. My friend was German and Pino then... read more

We spent nearly tee weeks travelling around Sicily on our honeymoon and took a special detour to eat here. Completely worth it. We drove past it in the afternoon and thought 'that can't be it' but wow once you get inside. The meal appealed to all your senses and even your imagination. Please do not miss this restaurant if you're... More

On our week long culinary tour of Sicily, my wife and I (along with other friends), enjoyed a superb dinner at La Madia -- a Michelin star restaurant with Chef Pino Cuttaia. Quite an experience for this gourmet novice and professed Neanderthal when it comes to fine dining. I was totally impressed with our sever course dinner. The phrase "OMG"... More

From the moment you enter the restaurant there is a level of service that makes it stand well in front of the rest. A gastronomic delight on every course. Just sensational! Yes it is pricy but you are paying for quality, it is an experience that you will neve forget.

had one of the set menus which was delightful until the puddings where we were given a choice and they were all disappointing - why not just do one great pudding as they had with previous courses? also no glasses of wine only bottles - i expected matching wine - there were only two of us and so had to...

Simply awesome food. Simple being the essence of the food. Loved every dish. When you arrive at the street you cannot imagine that you shall have such an excellent experience. The street on which the restaurant is located is very very average. After parking our car I was a bit worried. But all went very well. The most impressive dish... More

Pino (chef) is a to an artist he creates Sicilian cuisine in a way that no-one has done before. To me he is a Michelangelo of food.

A genuine 2* Michelin restaurant should be about offering the customer a challenge to their preconceptions, as well as just very good food. Another factor is that my experience of what is a starred restaurant in Britain, France, USA or Italy does not make the task any easier. Although I rate this establishment 5/5, it is not without the odd... More

We booked this restaurant 3 months in advance. Through a mix up, they had our reservations for a day earlier then we thought. When we arrived after a one hour drive, they informed us they had us for the night before and refused to seat us. The owner shouted at us and refused to help us find another place to... More

Well did the large tasting menu....it was great but honestly too much food. It was very innovative and with many different flavours and variations of ideas.You are paying for this and the great ingredients. It was a mix of formal and informal tending toward formal which we thought did not suit the atmosphere, but the particular dishes to try -... More
