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.

Excellent food and service. Having arrived 30 mins before opening on a damp evening, we were particularly pleased that the owner invited us in and gave us a drink while we waited. Don`t miss it if you`re near the centre of town....and it is good value

This restaurant was highly recommended at our B&B, so we made a reservation while we were walking around to get acquainted with the town. The staff was very kind, and we were happy to be greeted by one of the same people when returning for dinner. Business seemed slow at first (probably because we're always early), but the tables filled... More

Very good restaurant. The antipasto was yummy! Three hot and three cold. Had swordfish sausage, the best sausage I've ever eaten! Then had a fish cooked in tomato, olives, and capers also good.

As was already stated by the previous guests of the restaurant -- take the Degustation Menu for 24 EUR and you'll get one of the most delicious food in your life! Firstly, you'll be surprised with freshness of the ingredients. Secondly, you'll be amazed with new (for non-italians & non-sicilians, I guess :-) ) combinations of the ingredients. E.g. there...

This restaurant appeared in our guide book, which can be a bad thing some times, but not today. We liked the description of their buying fish for the day and, if it runs out, they simply close. There was great courtesy on arrival, and full descriptions given by our friendly waiter who knowledgeably recommended wine for our selection of dishes.... More

We have found Il Locandiere based on recommendation in our guidebook. We absolutely loved it, in spite of our being a little wary to eat fish so far from the coast Il Locandiere proved to be up to any test. What may be interesting Locandiere actually has decor which is not a norm for a Sicilian restaurant, and pleasant one... More

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
