The main purpose of me travelling to Sicily, was to visit bar Vitelli. My personal journey starting walking up from the train station at Santa Teresa di Riva. This was quite an epic walk, with breath taking views along the way.

Then slowly and surely, I reach Savoca, I walk around a corner and reached my goal, getting to bar Vitelli. I had to pause for at least half an hour, just dazzing at the bar. Goose bumbs, shivering down my spine, as I went in.

I felt as though as was in the movie, because it's exactly the same, including the chairs outside where Micheal Corleone sat. Inside, on the left they've made it into a little museum, and pictures of when they filmed the Godfather. On the right, it's like a normal bar, aswel as purchasing gifts and souvenirs from the movie.

I had a big mug of cappuccino, and sat outside, and really did expect Micheal Corleone to walk out. But it was personal for me, not business, so we'd would got on just fine.

Opposite the bar, the views are amazing and all of Savoca is just a brilliant place to go.

I recommend to anyone, to go visit Bar Vitelli, fantastico.

If you come to Savoca you are clearly a Godfather fan, so this bar is as unmissable as it is iconic. We enjoyed a lemon and strawberry granita, glass of wine and beer and lapped up the environment and history of such a beautiful place. The bar is fabulous and full of memorabilia. Even if it wasn’t famous, it’s not to be missed!

Owner and manager is extremely rude to Godfather fans. Only allows u to take photos if you pay for a table and the cost for food and drinks is ridiculously high. He’s kills the atmosphere and experience. He’s bleeding The Godfather for all it’s worth, what a shame.

It has a big name due to the movie Godfather. But the salads we had were terrible. It was way overpriced and none of the ingredients were fresh and tasty. The staff was not really friendly. I guess without the Godfather it did not exist anymore.

Bar Vitelli is located in gorgeous Savoca, Italy on Piazza Fossia. The building is an 18th century palace built by the Trimarchi family in a Sicilian Neoclassical style. We had a driver, so it was easy to access (there are also Godfather location tours). This is the spot from the famous scene where Coppola filmed Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino) asking the owner for his daughter Appolonia's hand in marriage. An offer the her father couldn't refuse ("I am an American, hiding in Sicily. My name is Michael Corleone. There are people who'd pay a lot of money for that information. But then your daughter would lose a father instead of gaining a husband." I only had time for a cappuccino, but it was lovely sitting outside under the green canopied vines. There weren't many people around since I was visiting off-season. Please be courteous when you visit as this is owned by real people and it isn't Universal Studios. But you can go inside and see memorabilia from the movie. And buy a Bar Vitalli T-shirt... I even wear mine w/a black or white skirt. The town itself is a wonderful (but hilly) place to walk. Bar Vitelli is a great place to start.

Believe it or not, a full size bus CAN make its way all the way to the top of the winding, very narrow road to Bat Vitelli. It is a bar, yes, and they do have some movie memorabilia in the room on the right as you walk in. It's quaint but clean. Very picturesque. We were there early in the morning, about 9 am, and had the place all to ourselves. we were a tour group of 10. We ate a scone or danish and had a wonderful 20 minute visit.

The bar Vitelli is a nice place, well furnished, quite interesting as location of the movie the godfather, nothing more. Today I was there in order to have a granita, that is a typical Sicilian products made with fruit and ice. It was very bad, among the worst I had in my life. When I was to the cash register for paying, I said that to the owner in polite ways, he e answered me in ironic and very unpleasant ways. I suggest go to visit the bar, but DO NOT have granita

This little piece of movie history represents several of the best scenes from The Godfather! It is a lovely building located in the epicenter of Savoca a small village town near Taromina, Sicily. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and a few complimentary snacks consisting of olive spreads, olives and nuts. It was one of the highlights of my trip to Sicily. Loved the experience.

It is a pretty place if you want to see it with your own eyes that iconic scene from the Godfather,but other than that the bar itself is not very good. E X T R E M E L Y slow service even when only two couples were sitting at the bar. We got served after 40 minutes of waiting after notifying the waiter. Come here,take the picture and then leave. Do not waste your time

I'm so glad we took the drive out here, even in the absolutely scorching weather. The bar is fantastic and did not disappoint, food was good (maybe slightly overpriced) staff were friendly and happy to leave us chatting with our drinks. If you are a Godfather fan then you must visit.
