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

Top class gourmet food and service. We got the black and white tasting menu. Many local Italians were guests at the restaurant, which made a great atmosphere for us. Since we did not speak Italian, we got a waiter which spoke English very well. The entire menu tasted and looked great. In the end we talked shortly with the chef.

Unbelievably, we booked the table one hour before we expected to arrive, & were surprised they had the vacancy. The restaurant frontage is very unassuming, behind a locked door, in a not so great town called Licata. On entering the restaurant, the change is like walking through a magic door from a dusty, noisy street into a cool, refined looking... More

The food was an adventure of taste and texture but we could have had a better experience. From the time you walk in you know this is not going to be a high end experience. The restaurant is a little shabby and even the glassware is plastic like. The waiter was nice and tried to explain things as well as... More
