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

Restaurant decor and service was decent enough. Our menu consisted of several courses all delivered with flourish. Clever techniques such as dehydrated mozzarella ball on tomato consume ("puffed" once cut into to) received ooh and ah factor but was, in fact, tasteless. Likewise the steak set alongside smoking hickory, purely visual of course, was as plain as can be. Chocolate... More

Le Madia is all about the food and the food is all good - actually great! The details of the location, atmosphere and the food have been been extensively reported on by other reviewers and I'd just like to confirm that as of mid-April 2014 they were still at the top of their game. Easily the best meal we had... More

Rightfully famous, dining at La Madia is a satisfying gastronomic experience. The entrance is very humble, you wouldn’t stop if you didn't know it was there. The interior too is far from ostentatious, we were a little disappointed at first, but the friendliness of the staff made us immediately feel at home. Although the service is much more relaxed than... More

We were a bit perplexed on arrival by the location. The town seemed an unlikely place to have a Michelin starred restaurant. We drive past it twice! After ringing the doorbell we were led down a corridor to a dining room whose decor reminded me of a basic Peruvian restaurant. However, the service was excellent, and Pino Cuttaia himself came...

Ik had been long looking forward to this lunch and La Madia delivered! The creations of chef Pino Cuttaia are simply amazing and surprising! Located in the town of Licata which appears a an quite ordinary, non-touristic port town. Although the restaurant lays in a busy street in the middle of the town, we didn't had much problems finding it... More
