This is a small hidden gem off the beaten path. I was taken here by my cousins and the food was fantastic. The menus is unusual and exiting. I would suggest to order different dishes with a view to share as they are all so full of taste character. Really enjoyed it will be coming back!

We just lucked out when we stopped at this restaurant while driving from Siracusa to Piazza Armerina! We started with a mixed antipasto, salad, caponata and tagliatelle - everything was wonderful! The ambience was delightful. I have included pictures of the restaurant and some of the dishes that we tried.

I visited as part of a group of 16, so we almost filled this lovely little restaurant. The food was superb - the shared antipasti included some wonderful fresh cheeses, and the tiny servings of chocolate sauce that came with that was really memorable - strong chocolate, followed a few seconds later by a great warm kick of chili.

It's a small cozy place, a small trattoria in the centre of Palazzolo Acreide. The family who's managing the restaurant works as a great team. Dad and daughter are serving the clients and explaining the dishes with extreme attention; then you the son, Yuri, who is the amazing chef of 25years old. Yuri has been studying and working in the...

By chance we entered this apparently unpretentious door and immediately after a gorgeous trattoria opened its atmosphere...The place is made with attention to the smallest detail, the tables and the pottery are cute and colourful, the toilet fully equipped and what is most important..the food is Amazing. Sicilian tradition with an eye to a modern taste for innovation, the young... More

Visited on a Tuesday. No written menu just specials. The antipasti were superb followed by wonderful tagliatelle with fennel and sausage. And the local speciality of sausage cooked in orange juice. Perfectly seasoned and very tasty.

Fantastic local food, cozzy rustic athmosphere, unpretentious fast service. Highest mark ! My wife and daughter had filled pasta and I had a shashlik. Goat milk desert was equally delicious.

We had the best meal of our holiday here. No menu, no English spoken, fantastic food, local flavours, divine wine, great value. Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Very kind and friendly service.

We came to this place by chance after a visit to old greek theater ruines. And this restaurant was a big surprise. looking more like a traditonal ristorante in a wine cellar. it gave us dishes, prepaired by a young innovative chef with new ideas, pepping up Sicilian recipies to modern taste. That was a well assorted lunch (entry, main... More
