We had been recommended this restaurant by staff at a hotel. We drove to Scicli to find Al Galù. It is situated in a narrow quaint alley. Outside were a few tables but we opted to sit inside. The ambience of the restaurant is nice and welcoming…….but that’s not all we came for. On entering the restaurant we saw fish... More

This place seems like a family run business and in my opinion is worth a try in Scicli. Probably your best shot is to try all the starters. Friendly staff and welcoming place.

We were recommended to eat here but the food turned out to be quite disappointing really - not to say it was bad but just not to our taste. The starters were pretty bland and the pasta we both had for main was made with the carob bean and had a distinctive taste - not unpleasant but not amazing either... More

Al Galu' was recommended to us by our first hosts in Sicily in Pozillo. We tried to get a table for lunch at short notice on the first Sunday of the year, but the restaurant was completely booked out, so we changed our plans and went for dinner instead. After turning down the first, rather cramped, table we were offered... More

We broke our usual rule of eating at a different place each night. The food here is amazing. the menu offers a huge choice, and the presentation is awesome. On our first visit I ordered the Whitebait Bruschetta. The fish was delicious and the bruschetta just melted in my mouth, whereas in some restaurants it is too hard. The carob... More

We arrived without reservation around 8.30 pm and were greeted by a friendly waitress. We had a sharing platter with lots of chesses, jams and a clear jelly which turned out to be mustard. It was really delicious and full of flavour. It was definitely the highlight of the visit. I went for gnocchi for main which did the job... More

We really enjoyed the food here - so we did go 3 times. The choice is up to you on how you want your fish cooked. Amazing fresh fish with amazing recipes for a very decent price. If you like fish don't think further go here!!

Dull food, decently cooked. The end of a holiday week-end and it showed. The owner's baby distracted her and the staff.
