Casual and busy with excellent service

The restaurant was full when we came to it, but the staff pulled another table outside and sat us quickly. There is a large range of pizzas to choose from and they are excellent - very fresh ingredients. The setting is pleasant - adjoining the cliffs and screened from the street. If you can... read more

This restaurant is in a pretty location, just a little stroll from the main part of the town. Booking is essential (as it seemed to be across the whole area) and we arrived a little early which was not a problem. We encountered 3 waiters, two of whom were very welcoming; the third was rather sullen. The first courses were... More

The bills was very reasonable, and staff we massively busy but were very attentive. We plan to go back next time to try some of,the other dishes.... More

We were staying in a villa in Scicli with American, British and Dutch friends and wanted an evening out. Scicli is a beautiful, small town, off the beaten track, located in a narrow V shaped valley bounded by high limestone cliffs. We booked a table for 8 persons on the afternoon of the evening we wanted to eat.... no problem.... More

A bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip!! We went for our first lunch in Sicily and walked into a quaint and authentic cave (so cool!) the service was amazing and personalized. We had the bruschetta, tomato salad, prawns and of course, 2 personal pizzas. The food was without a doubt delicious and truly authentic of the... More

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. We paid €80 for 2 persons, 3 courses, coffee, 1 glass of house wine. The atmosphere inside is very nice, outside on the terrace you're virtually sitting on a parking lot. The most romantic... More

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
