“Wonderful place, personal service, super food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

One of the best, if not THE best restaurant in Scicli that we tried. Make tHe effort to find the place which is hidden in an old street off the small but main road leading from the Piazza. Modern interior, White and Louis Ghost chairs give the clean appearance of a smart and sophisticated elegance. The menu is short but the dishes are tasty and fresh. We has the spaghetti with clams, the muscle quinoa, and the carob bean and prawn cassoulet. Then the huge BBQ lobster with 6 different flavoured salts and 6 elegant mayonnaise selections made it a real treat. Proceeded by a beautiful place of sushimi, and accompanied by 2 bottles of lovely prosecco , with service and covers we came away with change from 240 Euros and a long and highly memorable lunch. Just perfect.

“BEST MEAL IN SCICLI!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

This restaurant served one of the best meals we enjoyed during a 10 day trip in Sicily! We went for lunch and had the tasting menu appetizers as recommended by our server. It was just fabulous! Local products and the most delicious Caponata I have had..... Still dreaming about that one! We were the only non-locals the day we went.
They do offer an English menu if you cannot read Italian - the menu is extensive and inventive. The atmosphere is upscale and a bit contemporary in a fun environment. The staff is mostly young and energetic. We tried a different restaurant that night for dinner and wished we had returned to Al Galu - it pretty much spoiled us for any place else! Definitely make reservations and go!
