Tucked away at the bottom of a hill in an innocous, quiet corner of town, this restaurant's speciality is wild boar as its name indicates. When we visited the place was full of locals but that did not detract from the excellent service and delicious food.

It was nearly 1pm when we drove into Palazzolo Acreide, and desperate to find somewhere to eat before everything closed for the siesta. On the way in there was nothing tempting, and when we reached a square near the centre, we mis-read the roadsign and went downhill back out of town. A little square with recycling bins was at the...

This place specializes in boar, the boar pizza is out of this world & I wish I'd discovered in earlier in the week when I visited as I would have just camped out & eaten here until my flight out of town was due.

Thank Marayd

The restaurant, pizzeria, is the brainchild of Luigi and Marco to know and discover the goodness of wild boar meat. In the dining room, cozy, bright room with air-conditioning, and suitable for those who love peace and simplicity, you will be greeted and served by Luigi who will be able to advise you according to your taste and your needs on which dishes to choose from. The food will be cooked by Marco in the big kitchen that ensures the authenticity and freshness of the products. Outside there is a large balcony for those who want to enjoy in the summer, our dining outdoor. The restaurant has a small parking lot.
