This was by far one of my favorite restaurants in all of Italy. We took a bus of to Castelmola did a little sight seeing then found Gallo Cedrone. We spent the rest of the day there eating, drinking and talking to the owner. The food was incredible. I had just a simple lasagna but it was unforgettable. We walked... More

Not only was the pizza and pasta that we ordered good, but the service was very friendly and gratuitous. They gave my party of 4 a free bruschetta appetizer and liquor dessert (shots of a liqueur) for free!

Maria and her sons Roberto and Ricardo are really nice, she is a real mama, and thei are truly Italian. But the food...is not even average. We had a mediocre pizza with can mushrooms (!!) and even he other dishes were weak. We were very disapointed, and really cannot understand why many others like it. Maybe because the owner give...

This is a great family restaurant where I had the best Lasagna I have ever tasted. It was made by Mama and she was so happy when I told her. It's very laid back and not at all expensive, six of us went there twice in one week and both times people were waiting for tables, its worth the wait.

We went on a Med cruise in 2012 and stopped at Catania , and decided to take a trip to Taormenia , plus then on up to Castlemola to visit this cafe / restaurant. We had the same welcome and... More

We enjoyed our dinner here. The family run restaurant greeted us very well. We started with bruschetta on the house which was very good. We than ordered a salad and pizza both very tasty and good. Cannoli as desert is a must. All priced well. Must pay a visit if you come to Castelmola...
