This restaurant is located in the centre of Noto, just next to the theatre. The entrance looks a bit strange and the place of course was empty at around 6 o’clock when I made the reservation for later that night. When we got back the restaurant was full. Lots of Italian families where having there dinner there and we were lucky to be part of that happening.
The restaurant is family run where Il Patrone is accompanied and being helped by his daughters, The food is authentic Sicilian and one can really enjoy the well prepared dishes. No matter what you decide to have for dinner; everything is super. Il patrone is very busy with his guests and he really wants them to relax and enjoy their evening out. You can ask him for advice; no problem. He will tell you what you can take best however, be aware not to order to many things because the portions are big; real big. The taste is fantastic and the ambiance is nice and cozy. I now can imagine very well why Italian families like to go out for dinner with friends or just the whole family; if this is the way they use to eat, it really is magnificent.
