“A must when visiting Noto”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Fantastic atmosphere and service in this family run restaurant and delicious home cooked food .Antipasti of the house and fritto misto not to be missed .All our pasta dishes were fresh and inventive and the meat and fish for mains without fault .Portions are generous , service good and atmosphere typically Sicilian i.e lively and friendly .It is best to reserve as this restaurant not large and always full .

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

The food was very good. Fresh pasta, typical Sicilian products. Fino fino al pistacchio was great and the second course I had (meat with porcini) was very tasty. My husband had ravioli with ricotta, meat and typical sausage in tomato sauce... Was also very very nice. His second course was quite dry, but also tasty (the first dish on the 2nd course part of the menu). Italians also like the place. If you want to go there you definitely have to make reservations!

“You can see a good day from the morning!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Wanted to have dinner here and arrived at 20.30, we entered the main room and we asked to a waiter for a table for two. One lady , guess the owner or the manager , it really doesn' t matter, look at us and without even saying "Buonasera" or "come posso aiutarvi (how can I help you)" just told us : come back at 21,30 or 22,00 , fully booked. Not a phrase like ....I am sorry....or whatever....well ....in my opinion you may also have the best food in the whole world but there is something you won't never buy.....class and courtesy.... We went out and will never come back !

“Fino Fino!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is the one and only worth it restaurant in Noto. Friendly, english speaking stuff, first class food, reasonable price. You must try Fino fino al pistacchio - its addictive! Just make sure you make your reservation on time - this place can get very busy, because it is very popular.
