My italian is limited to some key vocab reading, and being vegetarian sometimes you're never quite sure that you've made yourself understood however we had no issues here. When we selected something on the menu which had meat (carne) we were reminded of it and we selected something else. It was all cooked to order fresh and was in the... More

President is located centrally in this picturesque town. It serves excellent homemade Sicilian food at fantastic prices. The antipasti was varied and plentiful. The homemade pasta cooked to perfection. The welcome from the owner Gaetano was amazing and very friendly. I would recommend that anyone staying in the area pay at least one visit here.

Typical Sicilian cuisine, cooked to perfection. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. It's quite possibly one of the best restaurants in the world.

It was lunch and while everything else was closed having siesta the President was open so we grabbed some pizza and found it to be fantastic. I remembered this place when I had visited Castiglione Di Sicilia some 37 years ago and was more than happy to walk in and have a look around. Loved it and bought back lots... More

This restaurant underlines why all foodies should visit Sicily: excellent, homemade food at reasonable price. Count 7-8 EUR for a main course.

You will receive a warm welcome here. The food is outstanding. The best we had during our stay in Sicily. The antipasti is to die for and set you up for the rest of the meal. We ate here twice and we couldn't resist having three courses both times! All very fresh and delicious. Service is very personal and friendly... More

This place has everything! Delicious Sicilian food, great atmosphere for both family and couples and has a fabulous outdoor eating area that overlooks the main piazza in the beautiful mountain village of Castiglione di Sicilia. This is a place you must have dinner or an early morning granita in the Sicilian summer. Your wonderful host Salvo will look after your... More

This place is small, and I think it's fair to say, traditional. My boyfriend and I stumbled across it when we were staying in the town in September, and were a bit scared to go in because it looked like a proper 'local' place. However we were warmly ushered in, and stayed for the full works! It was cosy and... More
