We found the restaurant late in our trip but still managed to sample the tasting menu twice. From the outside the building does not look anything special but once over the doorstop the transformation begins. Once inside we received a very warm and personal welcome from the Chef Damiano and his wife Adriana in the fantastic reception room with glass... More

After a very long ride from our hotel in Palermo, in our bus via The Turkish Steps at Realmonte, we arrived. I have to warn you the town is nothing special. There is a sign pointing the way, up and around a narrow lane to our dining destination. Standing out with its bold facade and very quaint entrance the Capitolo... More

Our hotel, Verdura, recommended this restaurant which is part of a B&B in Montallegro. It is run by a husband and wife team who are great hosts and welcome you into their home. We chose the tasting menu which was fantastic and all fish based. Unlike in the UK where tasting menu portions are small, these were generous and we... More

My forth dinner with some visiting friends at Capitolo Primo will not pass without writing an enthusiastic Tripadvisor review that Chef Damiano and is wife Adriana fully deserve. Adriana welcomed us with her spontaneous and warm kindness which makes you feel immediately at home. As in past occasions, we trusted entirely the surprise menu proposed by the Chef, and once...

We came across this restaurant while touring the temples in the Agrigento Region of Sicily. It was a truly enjoyable experience. We chose the tasting menu, everything was quite good. With some inventive dishes. Service was good. Really a pleasant surprise!

A unique find in this locality, you will be very pleasantly surprised by the up market finish of exquisitely prepared food by Damiano and his team. We were very satisfied with the experience there; in terms of food and service equally. We look forward to visiting Capitolo every time we visit that area of Sicily!

Our tour group felt quite priveleged to dine here recently. The interior of building itself which also offers B&B accommodation is stunning - transparent flooring in various sections offer glimpses into the wine cellar and a flowing spring; extensive wooden panelling and integration of a courtyard into the structure with a glass roof are delightful. We have a four course... More

Sunday. Early March. Hours spent driving in the amazing Sicilian countryside. 2.30 pm and still many km ahead. We decide to pull over and look for somewhere to grab a bite. All restaurants seemed closed - well, it's technically still winter - and we were losing faith. We decide to park the car and continue on foot. It was about... More
