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. We paid €80 for 2 persons, 3 courses, coffee, 1 glass of house wine. The atmosphere inside is very nice, outside on the terrace... read 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

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...
