We went to La Botte for lunch and had the daily special which was Tagliatelle con Funghi Porcini and Lampuki alla Messinese. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the fish was cooked in a lovely sauce with fresh tomatoes, olives and capers. The service was quick and courteous. The atmosphere is familiar and cosy. All in all I would... More

The fish set menu was fantastic and a very good value!! 3 courses of fresh fish with a salad that was cooked really well for €26. Looks like a family restaurant as well with the grandmother and grandson at the back of the place.

We spent a week in Cefalu and La Botte was recommended by local people we met. We thought the food was excellent and the service great would thoroughly recommend to anyone who loves genuine Italian food.

We tried unsuccessfully to get into Ristorante La Brace at the last minute. They suggested we try La Botte. Our food was quite good, and our waitress was spot on with her wine suggestion. It's near the cathedral.

2 persons out of 5 had swordfish with capperi in tomoto source. It was far too salty. Other 2 had at slide of swordfish in pistaccio that was ok. Also the spaghetti with vongole veraci was ok. It took 45 min to get the food despite few guests in the restaurant. Friendly service but overall not value for money.

This has been among the very best meals we have had in our 4 + weeks in Sicily. The usual Siciliano fare was taken up a notch. The food was innovative and delicious. The service could not have been more gracious. We will be back.

We had an excellent meal here after we made the wise decision to avoid the restaurants in the square outside the cathedral. We were the last table at lunch and it was after the closing time, but they did not rush us at all. Delicious food and great service. It is a family run business and the care and attention... More

Mushroom ravioli was awesome. Place is small and was frequented by locals. Service was great, waiter could speak several languages. Very nice overall, would recommend it if you don't have much time and you want great food.

We did not need to be near the sea to have great seafood and veal. My husband had the fixed meal which was an excellent value and included marinated sardines, a pasta also with sardines, and entire sea bass. I enjoyed grilled veal and a caprese salad, perfect portions. Excellent wine selection, from which we enjoyed an Etna Bianco, although... More
