“Great food and service, good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We usually try a diffent place for every dinner when on holiday, but the kids (aged 10 and 14) insisted we should go back to this restaurant again. The food is delicious, the service is great and all for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended!

“Best forgotten”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Where to start? The room was uninviting and the welcome indifferent. Three dishes were ordered, a lasagne al forno, (ordered because it said available only on Sunday, so as its Sunday it should be good.) A sausage and potato dish and a spaghetti de mare. The lasagne was ok if your standards are low, meanly flavored and under sauced. The sausage was ok, well flavored with fennel and meaty. The potatoes brought to mind the question, "How many times have these been reheated?" The spaghetti however was nothing more than a collection from the bottom of the freezer. Prawns clams and mussels that needed carbon dating. Dry, unpleasant in texture and I suppose mercifully, largely tasteless. The wine, was also some of the worst plonk I've tasted in Sicily. To be avoided.

“Simple food done really well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

We had lunch in Noto today at Al Buco. Nice seating outside along the main (but not busy) street. We had delicious fish in a red sauce that was worth using all of the bread to get the last drop. Also had a very simple veal cutlet that was fresh and tasty. The service was friendly but a bit odd as if these were not professional waiters. Nonetheless, this is a good choice in town.

“Good value trattoria”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

Pavement trattoria near the Duomo. Not a huge choice of food but good quality and cheap. The orange salad is very good. Don't be afraid to ask for something that's not on the menu.
