Good food, €>average, atmosphere inside+ outside-

The food is absolutely tasty. Many authentic dishes or typical Sicilian ingredients are used in the dishes. For Sicilian standards it is more expensive than average.

As the pictures will show you, this is literally carved out of the rock so it's small and the bare rock is the ceiling. It's a very simple place with bare upright chairs and check table cloths and when we first walked in we weren't quite sure we'd made the right choice. We need not have worried. The proprietor and...

We are glad we made a reservation for Saturday night. When we arrived at 8.30 the place was empty but by 9.00 it was heaving. A lovely family restaurant, great decor and very friendly service. We are not big eaters by Italian standards so we had to limit our choices and shared the bruschetta starter, very inventive and original in... More

After having dinner here on a Sunday night, we changed our itinerary so that we could return on Tuesday (Monday is their day off). The chef is inventive, taking his dishes into unexpected directions. Everyone is very friendly and happy to share explanations of the food. So what did we eat? The best bruschetta ever- beans, green pepper, onion, capers,... More

Everything about La Grotta restaurant was lovely and perfect. We had wanted to have Pasta con Le Sarde, but owning to a "mare mosso" there were no sardines. The chef offered to make the dish with a different fish instead. Totally fantastic - the food I came to Sicily for. For desert we had celery sorbet. Don't laugh or cringe.... More

We ate here one night and were very disappointed with the meal. The pasta with sardines was over cooked, very dry and generally not very nice. The pork dish which was basically two lumps of pork fat with a little bit of meat in a bland sauce which was inedible. The side dish of roasted potatoes were raw and we... More

If you are staying anywhere near Scicli, try this restaurant. The food is authentic, unpretentious, tasty and reasonably priced. Over the course of 3 dinners, we tried the pasta with sardines and breadcrumbs (excellent), the pizza with aubergine and ricotta, mixed salad (with buffalo cheese - which is not on the menu but they were happy to add the cheese...

Very disappointing lunch. Dried up pasta sauce & the fish was actually off. We were taken here by a Sicilian friend who was very embarrassed. Far too expensive for what we got. The toilet is an ancient relic, although I have to say it didn't smell.

The ravioli was quite good - both the pesto and the wild boar tomato sauce. My pasta with eggplant and ricotta salata (a hard ricotta) was nothing to write home about. We were seated outside near a a very large paper lantern. However. we discovered as the meal progressed and it got darker that the light attracted literally hundreds of... More
