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.

Fish and sicilian cuisine at the highest levels. Very characteristic little restaurant close to Scicli's city hall. Excellent service. We had a wonderful experience.

We visited Baqqala based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant is a lovely little place. We didn't book but they were able to accommodate 13 of us on 2 tables. There are only about 10 tables and one waiter so he was rushed off his feet. The mixed fish starter was very good but I was disappointed by the... More

Exceptional dinner location in Scicli's historic downtown. The restaurant has a fantastic terrace just located on a quiet piazza in the middle of Scicli. The fish risotto is exceptionally good and makes it absolutley worth comming to this restaurant, as well as many other fish dishes served in this restaurant. The sea food is absolutley fresh and delicious. Prices are... More

All really good restaurants are successful because they have a personality behind them. Carlos is that character and the whole place exudes his charm and efficiency. This is homespun fine fish dining, simply cooked, great ingredients, no fuss.

We just wanted to make a quick visit to Scicli for about and discovered this lovely little restaurant- because Carlo (the owner? a waiter?) was smiling broadly and making jokes when we walked by. He and his colleague Valeria are not only serving delicious food ( we had great fresh salads and the MOST delicious cannolo EVER!) - they are... More

The setting for this quirky little restaurant is perfect - right beside the Palazzo Beneventano with its fantastic gargoyles. We visited twice, with the first visit more enjoyable than the second. There are only a few tables outside and it was full on the first occasion, so plenty of atmosphere and a nice chilled out vibe with jazz music in... More

Great setting behind the Palazzo Beneventano. Fun staff. Fantastic fish. But a problem if you don't want fish, it's all there is on the menu.

Beautiful setting, friendly staff. A tad expensive, but antipasta was delicious. Tuna steak excellent but without sesame seeds is probably the best choice.
