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

It has been the third time to Il Locandiere in as many trips to Sicily. First time was by chance as we wanted to have an early lunch and this restaurant was the only one open just after noon. Subsequently we purposely took the detour via Caltagirone to have lunch/dinner here. The antipasti are simply delicious and prepared with fresh... More

I've been a professional chef for more than 30 years and I am fussy about where I go out to eat. I can spot gimmicky, "pictures on plates", rip off joints a mile off. Instead I like to take a risk and discover genuine food that doesn't cost the earth. Tonights meal at Il Locandiere, Caltagirone was one of those... More

My friend rode mountaint bikes up to the restaurant from the bottom of the hill. He was ravenous and I had not had breakfast yet. We sat down and chosed the 24 euro men fisso. We were pleasantly surprised with a variety of anti-pasto dishes: beans with spearment leaves, fish on a slice of orange, a meat roll accompanied with... More

We had an amazing first course of different fish dishes, each mouthful was a pleasure. The second course was recommended, it was the fish of the day but after the starter it was disappointing and very ordinary. However we enjoyed the atmosphere and the waiter was very charming and helpful. We come to Caltagirone often so will come back as... More

Some reviews claim that the food here is Michelin star quality. Let's get that out of the way first - it isn't. But it is nonetheless very good and I would thoroughly recommend it. Apparently Il Locandiere is known for its seafood appetisers so it seemed rude not to give them a try. You get three cold and three hot... More

Loved both the food and the service. Marinated sardines starter was briliant as well as the fish sausage. Even the house wine was really nice. Briliant place, only the interior was so so. Do make reservations, like with most good restaurants in Sicily.

Found it on Tripadvisor, and we decided to try our luck. At 8pm when they opened we where the first customers, and the waiter was checking the reservation list, we thought it was a joke (the place looks like pretty down scale in the entrance. You can see the kitchen, the fish fridge nothing much). Been invited to the table... More
