“The worst meal in Sicily”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012 via mobile

Poor service, poor food and an incorrect inflated bill. The only poor food experience we had in 10 days. Avoid.

“excellent food shame about being charged service twice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2011

The food in sicily is fantastic, Trattoria Via Monte S.Agata was wonderful. Though unexpected as it is located down a little alleyway near a bar. The waiter told us that the food we were enjoying was typical of Sicilian food. He was right. Everything was great until the bill turned up. We where charged twice for service and then cutlery. This apparently is normal. However an Italian /Australian couple argued on our behalf that we were being ripped off. We did not win the battle but the couple told us to ask for the free sambuca as this is normal, if you ask. beware of two charges!, but some of the greatest seafood pasta you will ever eat and a lovly bottle of Terreliade Nero D'Avola-Syrah Red.

Food poor, service poor, prices inflated. Avoid.

Watching the kitchen staff haul two waste food bins through the restaurant whilst dinning was the pits.
