A hidden gem in Marettimo. A huge selection of cheese, meats, wine and other local products. Take-away or eat-in at one of the few tables outside the shop. Friendly staff.

We used La Cambusa as our stocking place for meat, charcuterie, cheeses, bread, capers, olives, caponata, some good local sides, wine and so on. If you are in Marettimo with a nice terrace and a kitchen, this is a must stop for your meal needs....More

We spent a week in Marettimo this summer, we like many Italians love good food and good wine and I can honestly say our holiday would have not been the same without la Cambusa. Their food is phenomenal, they have a very nice selection of...More

The food was delicious, so many different dishes with that typical Sicilian flavour and they kept coming! Definitely much more of a dinner than an aperitif!! The owners, Filippo and his wife and daughter are lovely hosts!! We will be back soon! Ciao from London!

As regular visitors to Marettimo, La Cambusa is our "port" within the island, worthy of many daily visits. It's a temple of quality food and authentic flavours, with a great selection of the best Sicilian wines. Surely a MUST DO experience for everyone visiting this...More

What a find! The butcher is president of the Slow Food movement in Sicily and lays on a feast - wave upon wave of hot and cold starters paraded through! We sat at large wine barrels outside the butchers shop after having reserved our space...More
