Great seafood restaurant

Like all places in Sicily, it can get very quiet in the afternoon but this is a great spot to have a long relaxing lunch. We stumbled across this place by chance as we wandered around Scicli, rather keenly popping in first to make a reservation before continuing our meander through the lanes of the... read more

Had a table outside, very nice ambience. Staff are young and in informal attire which makes for a more relaxed evening. Menu is very nice, the pasta con le sarde is very good, the tuna with Nero d'avola is deliciously different and the swordfish involtini are also very nice.

If you are in Scicli or the neighborhood of Scicli, make a reservation at Baqqala! I wouldn't even mind a drive of an hour to go back to this place, as the food is absolutely delicious, a perfect combination of the authentic and modern Sicilian cuisine. We had dinner here with 3 people. My husband had the baccala (cod with... More

A tiny place where booking is a must but make sure not to skip this restaurant while in Scicli. The mixed starters are unique and every plate that followed was great.

Absolutely fell in love with Scicli, and I cannot imagine a better place to relax, eat, and drink it all in. In spite of our woeful Italian, our waiter, Charles fed and entertained us through a highly enjoyable meal.

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
