Description: The Vicoletto is a small room but of character, the right place for a choice of quality and definitely never boring. The kitchen is full of great flavors, the perfect combination of traditional foods, absolutely fresh and first quality, has combined expertise with a warm atmosphere, the elegance of the details with the foods, flavors and wines expertly researched. Really interesting gastronomic proposals that favor the Sicilian and Mediterranean cuisine in general; the dishes are made with seasonal products that are matched carefully to the catch of the day, personally chosen by the owners. Really very original, with a touch of elegance and yet informal restaurant that makes Al Vicoletto the ideal place to spend a pleasant evening with friends over good and juicy dish.

“Friendly kind service and tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Not at all hard to find and yes, you have to buzz in. But once you are inside you will find white clothed tables and friendly kind service with a great menu to choose from. We enjoyed a great meal - cheese plate and caponata to start with and 3 really tasty pastas. Definitely make a reservation as it is popular and fills up fast.

“Delicious whole fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

The dining room at this friendly, little restaurant is bright and pleasant. We were offered two types of bread, both of them crusty and good but I particularly liked the one flavoured with fennel seeds. The pasta dishes were huge (you could share one) and very good. I had the tagliatelle with prawns, swordfish, tomato and almonds. We chose the fresh fish of the day and were given our choice of the three whole fish on offer. We chose a red snapper (pargo), which was char grilled and served whole with wedges of lemon. The flesh was perfect, soft white and tender. The grilled skin was delicious but unfortunately the scales hadn't been removed as carefully as they should have been. The staff were both very helpful, explaining the menu carefully and suggesting a wine for us.

“One of a few”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This restaurant is not easily found but it is worth the time to find. Apart from the sweets sicily did not impress me much with food lately but the greek style swordfish and squid with potato filling were really delicious.
