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...

We are 2 Italians and discovered Il locandiere by chance during our vacation. The food was excellent and the service fantastic. We were absolutely delighted by this little gem. If you happen to be in Calatgirone it´s a must for great fish-experience.

The best food in town and probably in sicilia. They serve only fish, vegetables and delicious deserts. Don't skip the antipasti, a combination of cold and warm fish dishes. Excellent wine card.

We planned a stopover in Caltgirone after visiting Piazza Armerina on our way to Siracusa mainly for convenience, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the town and by also the quality of the excellent seafood at this charming restaurant. The antipasti were among the best seafood I have ever tasted.

Only word can describe this seafood restaurant. FANTASTIC. If you love seafood, this restaurant is worth the trip to Caltagirone in itself.

High quality food, presented very well by the kitchen staff and wait staff. Our server was Fabrizio, and he made sure we were comfortable while giving us our space to chat, as well. We were suggested a fabulous wine to accompany our delightfully fresh seafood dining experience. The food was prepared elegantly and simply so that our palettes could taste... More
