We almost always order the antipasti from the house as a starter. At this restaurant it is excellent! Several warm and cold snacks, various flavors from the region and very fresh! I should have ordered 2 portions and skip the main course. Also the staff is very friendly!

We ate here 3 times and the food and service was always great. The Sicilian anti pasta was exceptional. You can also eat inside or outside.

Fantastic Sicilian food, realistically priced and served by friendly staff that have a reasonable understanding of English. The Red wine is made by the Grandfather, it is cheap and delicious!

Typical Sicilian meal in an amazing Sicilian little town perched on top of a mountain. Great food, very delicately prepared, great service. 20-40€ per head

Staff were really pleasant and spoke good English. Very amenable however as they were sparsely staffed occasionally absent from the restaurant when new people arrived or customers wanted the check. We ate here twice and the food was good, typically the simple sicilian style but filling. Not the cheapest place but not pricey either. Park on the piazza lauria if... More

During our week in Castiglione, we had dinner here two times. The service is very good, and even if there doesn't seem to be any more seats outside - just ask, and they will arrange something for you! Tha antipasti was a particular favourite with us, seemingly simple dishes like grilled vegetables were perfectly prepared and full of flavour. Great... More

Wonderful menu of typical Sicilian food, all home-made and locally sourced ingredients. Ravioli with Pistaccio fantastic, or Pasta Sine Tempore and if you need a change from Pasta try the meatballs wrapped in Lemon leaves or the Lamb chops, and indulge in some Fries (yes, not typically Sicilian!) and a fresh salad!

It was such a pleasure to come across this charming restaurant! Exhausted after a full-day excursion to Etna we found the restaurant just perfect to relax and enjoy the viewes. The atmosphere is so friendly and the hosts were so helpful to advise what to choose from the thick menu of delicacies. The local specialities they serve need no description.... More

We had two wonderful dinners in this beautiful restaurant. It was the best food in Castiglione di Sicilia (and indeed, of everywhere we went in Sicily) and that is saying a lot. The house wine is locally made from the family who owns and runs this restaurant (the gradfather's wine), the cheese is from another relative's locally made cheese shop... More
