Astonishing food. Light,flavoursome, inventive. We had a sensational meal with excellent service. Extensive wine list appropriately weighted towards Sicilian wines. An unforgettable culinary triumph.

This place is deserving of its 2 Michelin as the food is exceptional, service spot on and guarantees a memorable dining experience. We chose the first degustation ( there are 3 as well as a la carte) and for 85 euro per head plus wine, were delivered 7 wonderful small courses, which was really as much as we could eat!... More

We ordered the Seafood Chef Surprise menu. The quality and inventiveness of the food justifies the 2 michelin stars that the chef earned. It's creative and yet hasn't gone too "molecular", and the taste and presentation is very well-done. There's is no doubt that the chef is talented. However, the ambience of the restaurant and the service is a let... More

As a cook of fine food I can honestly say there was not one thing about the food I could fault. It is beautiful and perfected simplicity with flavours that are well balanced yet fulfilling every time. Impossible to choose a favorite course. Inspirational food and compared to french restaurants with similar accolades the atmosphere is far more inviting. Some... More

We drove a long way to eat here and it was totally worth it. We had the 7-course sea breeze menu and it was an incredible dining experience. The service was excellent and the food was unbelievably good. Sicily's has wonderful restaurants and this was the best we found.

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 requested a German waiter for us.... More

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.

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
