Just had dinner here and must say I am in heaven . I am an old fan of all things Italian but the food tonight surpassed all. I hshared a fish antipasti with my hubby and had stuffed monkfish as a main. All I can say is that I would not have eaten as well in a Michelin starred restaurant.... More

We stumbled upon Baqqala while looking for another restaurant in Scicli but the gorgeous covered terrace on a sunny day in late May and the atmospheric bossa nova were too good to miss. Baqqala is right next to Palazzo Beneventano, which adds a lot to its charm, but the food matches the scenery and so does the staff. They were... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel we were staying in and whilst we initially battled to find it when we did we were very pleased. Real hot day but were seated outside in a nicely shaded area - service was quirky but excellent and the food was fantastic - great sea food to start with and then some... More

During my trip with my friends from Northumberland around the South East of Sicily last May, we visited enchanting Scicli (near Ragusa) and by chance and very good fortune we went to eat in this arty, eccentric, best location and very good authentic Sicilian food. The food was really special but we also had a lot of fun and laughter... More

We had a good lunch here. Lots of fish, I had the tuna with caramelised onions and my partner the monkfish and some white house wine. Tucked away a bit next to the old palazzo with the amazing gargoyles.

Having searched several streets without inspiration we turned a corner and found this delightful little restaurant (or is it a bistro?) in a simple but most effective setting. We required only a light lunch and therefore did not venture beyond the pasta and dolce courses but what we had was delicious, well cooked and well presented. The service was efficient... More

Avoid this restaurant at all costs if you want to eat fresh, tasty, local fish dishes. All of our secondi fish dishes (monkfish, cod, swordfish) were made from frozen fish, several days / weeks old - and were pretty inedible. The primi pasta dishes were very average, but passable. Such a shame that a well reviewed restaurant was happy to... More

Description

In uno degli scenari piu suggestivi del barocco siciliano, a Scicli, riapre le porte, vestito di nuovo, il BAQQALa. Il baqqala nasce dal desiderio di creare un luogo legato alla tradizione della cultura gastronomica, offrendo un ambiente confortevole fatto di luoghi caldi e personali dove le persone possano ritrovare i propri riferimenti di gusto e il calore dell'ambiente familiare. L' oasi gourmet affacciata al palazzo beneventano, vi proporra una collezione di piatti di ispirazione mediterranea che celebrano il gusto e l'intelletto, dove sentori e sfumature si fondono in armoniosi tripudi di gusto e colore. Largo alle materie prime di qualita...La natura e servita grazie ad essenze, verdure, e soprattutto pesce rigorosamente freschi.
