We can truly say this has also been our best meal in Sicily since it is our first day on the island - and what a find! As previous reviewers have said this is a very nice restaurant - excellent food and attentive service, at a great price. We chose the 24 euro meal, and after 8 courses we were... More

We just finished a wonderful meal at Il Locandiere on our last night in Caltagirone, which we have been visiting to attend our daughter's wedding to a terrific local man. We had the menu, which consisted of 6 seafood appetizers: three cold (smoked swordfish, smoked tuna rolled in cheese and arugula, and herring with chiles on an orange slice) and... More

Caltagirone is a town quite distant from the sea, but this restaurant has an amazing seafood. It was one of the best in Sicily, I think. I would be pleased to have a chance to come back. I could recommend this restaurant to everyone, who likes seafood. First night, I had the raw shrimp as an appetizer, and was surprised... More

I love fish, and this restaurant surpassed my expectations. Having enjoyed eating at Rick Stein's in Padstow I can honestly say the attention to detail in the preparation of each plate we tasted from the degustazione option is comparable. Knowledgeable staff offer food and wine suggestions, and present food with notable enthusiasm and intelligence. The restaurant, which you will spot... More

This restaurant does a 5 course hot and cold degustation for an absurdly cheap 24 euro. The fish is fresh and the culinary ideas inventive, clean and delicious. The service staff are attentive for an Italian restaurant and speak very good English. Best restaurant in the area.

In Italy the movement to "slow food" is like the "farm-to-table" movement in the states. It's all about fresh local ingredients. This special comfortable spot is one of those special places that's destined to become a destination. Although it's near the most touristy area of Caltagirone, it's not that. It's run by the friendliest brothers you could hope to meet.... More

We were a crowd of seven on a Tuesday night - 3 somewhat fussy kids and four adults, one of whom was avoiding animal protein for an allergy test. No worries - our needs were handled skillfully. The three fish-eating adults reveled in the hot and cold seafood antipasto, which was superb, the kids and vegetarian had pasta, our waiter... More

We stopped in here and asked for a table - we were warned "only fish". Perfect for us. We took he waiters suggestion - seafood antipasti and two pastas. It was absolutely superb and only €24 per person. Beautiful fresh ingredients, cooked perfectly. Lovely ambience too, and we also annoyed a couple of glasses of local wine. Service was friendly...
