We visited here for lunch one day as we had hired a moped to visit Catiglione and Alcantara Gorges. The food was wonderful, the waiter was so lovely and the price was fantastic. A must visit!

We were happy to discover this little restaurant & amazed by how tasty the food was!! We each had a different dish and they were all absolutely delicious - stand out was the pistachio one. At the end of the meal we had coffees and the lovely restauranteur said something about something for the kids and returned with four divine... More

We didn't know where to go. Some locals recommended this place. Very nice and charming owner/cook. Good regional meet and pasta dishes. High quality olive oil and vinegar which is always a good indicator. No Tourist prices. The location is as authentic as it's owner. We'll come back next year!

This little restaurant is situated in the middle of the town and seemed the only place serving food on a Saturday night. It was a chance find but the food was excellent - particularly the anti pasta plate which is more than enough to share between 2. There were lots of traditional Sicilian meats, cheese and tasters on the anti... More

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.
