We chose the menu of the day. For 24 euro we got a lot of great frech fish. The cold and hot starters are simply great! With the menu you won't get off the table with hunger!

As is so often the case many people do not really know how to rate food and the reviews for this restaurant are good examples. The courses, we had the complete tasting menu, are good or very good, but not excellent. I gained the impression that the chef, who pops out of his kitchen regularly to check the tables, is... More

we stepped into a cosy restaurant and was greeted with the best Sicilian service--warm, genuine, welcoming. So much attention and detail went into the design of the menus, you immediately know that these people take pride in their restaurant and take things seriously. Our polite yet friendly server recommended the set menu( a bargain at like 20euros), and what would... More

We had dinner at this highly rated restaurant, but it didn't live up to the rave reviews. This was the first restaurant in Sicily where the waiter tried to "up sell." He tried to convince us that one of the hot antipastos was a tiny portion. We ordered one to share anyway, and felt it was a good size to... More

We loved Il Locandiere! The food was delicious and down to the last dish, perfect, the service wonderful, the restaurant comfortable. Go! It's worth time on the road, another church, and possibly a another piece of Sicilian pottery to enjoy a meal at this restaurant. The highlights for me were the fish sausage flavored with fennel and a cannolo which... More

A seafood restaurant worthy of a visit! Even though due to be closed on the night our group wished to eat there, they opened their door and kitchen and what a feast! Six antipasta dishes- 3 cold starters and 3 hot then gave way to 2 pasta dishes. Apologies were made that no mains courses were available on the night... More

Do not miss the chance to eat in this well priced, simple but brilliant restaurant which, oddly enough given the location of Caltagirone, serves only fish and seafood. Booking essential.

Motoring though the Sicilian countryside we were delight to come across the picturesque hilltop town of Caltagierone. We followed the crowd of Italians enjoying their Christmas holidays and found this wonderful restaurant operated by two brothers and specialising in seafood. We placed ourselves in their hands with the fish menu and were deliciously rewarded. Non-fish eaters may have difficulty but... More

With our limited Italian and their limited English, we ordered what we thought was just a simple fish dish each. But turned it out that the specific dishes ordered were merely to be the finales of a wonderful sequence of delicious morsels. We did not leave hungry.
