“Looks genuine but it's not”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

In a nice street full of typical sicilian fast food (arancini and granita delivery) here it comes this place. Nice tableware, the sign says typical sicilian food and the look tells you it's a real "trattoria". Until you ask your order. To discover that you"re not a priority, to find out that your fried calamari are old and dusty, to see the waiter has lots more interesting to do. For a price thtat is not as cheap as the food and service.

“Nothing special about this restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We just wanted a place to have a dinner after a quick visit of the old town of Noto.
We asked for advice in the Tourist Information office, and they gave us a few addresses in the surroundings. One of them was Profumi e Sapori. We have an average dinner, nothing speical but also nothing really bad. The price was adequate for the quality and the service.
Certainly I would try something else if I came back to Noto, but overall it was alright for that occasion.

“For genuine local fare, an excellent family-run establishment.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

We took dinner here. The patron ensures you have what he recommends, but in a nice hospitable way. We had pasta in squid ink and it was exquisite and very reasonably priced. This is a genuine sicilian dining experience rather than featuring pretend menus for tourists and we picked this restaurant over three others we found in the town. They concentrate here on doing relatively few dishes, very well. You will need some Italian to enjoy it most.
