A little bit in a 'sidestreet' of the main streets in Cefalu, this restaurant is a great find. The food was very authentic, the staff was very friendly. I had the pasta with sardines which was lovely, my girlfriend had pasta with 'red bass', which was also very good. For desert I would recommend the semi-freddo (even though I had... More

Had a very good to excellent meal here. The veal rolls (involtini) were excellent and the caponata was very good as well. The highlight was the canolo. Simple, traditional and properly done. Loved it. Service was very professional and helpful. Prices were on the higher side, but overall the quality was worth it.

A medium experience, not as good as expected, especially the prawn cocktail was plain and boring. The waiters were nice, and one of them understood a little English.

Salvatore from Baronetto B&B recommended this restaurant. We had lunch or dinner I think 3 times during our 2 week stay in Cefalu. The food and service is very good.

Went to this restaurant just the once but we enjoyed the food. Sat out on one of the tables in the small street. The restaurant was recommended to us & we understood why. Tasty food & not expensive either. Well worth a visit

This place, down a back street, is worth searching out. It will surpass expectations and appearances - standard menu but the quality of food and cooking is definitely better than average. Perfect for lunches; you can sit inside or out on the street. All the typical Sicilian tourist staples on the menu - well executed- and you get attentive, friendly... More

We went to La Botte as it's close to our hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were quite surprised by the number of scooters that passed by while we were sat there but that's al fresco dinning for you. The food was really good. I had the daily special of pasta with meat in a tomato sauce... More
