“Excellent Evening in Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Wonderful food, excellent staff and a most enjoyable evening with my husband and friends. You leave quite full so don't eat before hand.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

If you've never eaten Agriturismo style, you will be in for a treat. For 30 euro per person, you will be served a sinful amount of delicious local cuisine, family style as well as all the wine and water you can drink.The wine changes every month, featuring a different local vineyard each time. You can also purchase bottles of the wine to take with you.The service is excellent and if your Italian is not the best, English is spoken. The views are beautiful from the mountain top it sits on. If you have small children, they do not have high chairs. Not uncommon in Sicily, so a travel high chair, or even a stroller are a good idea to bring with you. They're still very patient with small children. Lare groups are also welcomed. We usually have about 10-15 when we go. Excellent experience over all. Don't miss it!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

What a meal! For roughly 30 euros, this is a fixed price menu that will leave you absolutely stuffed. A variety of appetizers, two pasta dishes, a meat dish, and dessert, with all the table wine you can drink. Definitely worth the experience, and you will not leave hungry!

The views are fantastic, and there is outdoor seating available.

Dinner is by reservation only, so be sure to call a few days before.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

My niece, who lives in Catania, made reservations for us weeks before we arrived in Sicily. And I'm so glad she did. I was in Italy for 17 days and this was one of the best places we ate.
The setting is beautiful. Once you pass through a locked gate, you travel to the top of a hill with gorgeous views. The large room we ate in was comfortable and decorated nicely.

We had been warned to eat lightly all day and to pace ourselves once we started eating. The food was delicious. I especially loved the blood orange salad but everything (except tripe, for me) was really good. Every few minutes our waiter/host, George, brought something new to the table and we Never said "no thank you". The wine was plentiful and kept coming too. All for `30 euros per person.

Our waiter, George, was accommodating and gracious. He described the various dishes and answered our questions. He took pictures for us and with us.

I will definitely return to Borgo Antico.
