In the shop "Enoteca Avola" you can taste a variety of cheese and meat products, which are of good quality and not overpriced. Also, you can buy antipasti and sample through wine(s) before making a deliberate purchase decision. In May 2016, the shop was undergoing reconstruction, which is why because of havoc we did not have a chance to sample... More

We needed to get a simple lunch and some supplies so rather than a super market we parked easily at this small shop. It's easy to go into the next door Wine shop which has little food and less charm. We took away a selection of Wines and enjoyed great fresh filled rolls at the tables for a bargain price... More

Go figure, Why will they not have air condition in a shop that sells wine?! We came in especially because we read the reviews.... and left a second later. There was no table or chairs and it was so hot in this tiny shop. Feel free to skip this 'attraction'.

Lovely people and the shop is a real gem. Food and wine are delicious. Very handy for us Northwestern Europeans to have our 6 o'clock "snack" at.

This place offers various typical Sicilian cheeses and salamis accompanied by very good quality wines especially the Nero d'Avola & Moscato. Worth visiting.

Made a little detour based on other Tripadvisor recommendations and are glad we did. Liked it so much we stopped in a second time. Very helpful staff that appear to be a family. Worked with us to get through the language barrier and get us what we wanted. Offered free wine, cheese and bread samples and provided great wine recommendations.... More

A wonderful establishment run by a charming family. We were invited to try local products including olive oil, cheeses, wine, and bread. Everything was delicious. If you're lucky enough to visit Avola, you must stop here.
