Strange sensation being the only person in a restaurant, offputting the commis waiter pacing up and down, the music similar. The room is plain and not particularly exciting, the chairs not conducive to leisurely dining. However the food was sublime. Like most I opted for...More

This is a Michelin star restaurant which we went to with great expectations. We went for the Black and White tasting menu. There were only two tables occupied which meant that the service while precise and attentive was a little oppressive. The first course: potato...More

Going to a Michelin one star restaurant brings high expectations, and mine were met by La Gazza Landra. The food was unusual, with subtle flavors and textures that went well together. Wine recommendations were great, and there is a discount for guests of the Palazza...More

A nice restaurant with some good cooking, but we had the tasting menu and whilst the dishes read well on the menu some were a little 'ordinary' and not what you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant.

Modica is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and truly cool towns in all of italy. So your evening starts with a walk ascending the winding and ancient streets up to La Gazza, stopping off at the Cathedral San Giorgio en route. Arriving, we had...More

The food was excellent and served in style. We went for a smaller number of courses than their full menu, but were presented with a few extra little dishes which excited our taste buds. It made for a very special birthday meal.

Description
Inside Palazzo Failla Hotel, one of the most interesting late-Baroque jewels of the area, you'll meet the sophisticated charm and elegance of the restaurant La Gazza Ladra. The intimate, essentially elegant black and white 'salotto' was inspired by the colours of the magpie, the bird from which the restaurant derives its name. With the gentle but genuine touch of the chef David Tamburini guests are taken to an unexpected Sicily, both ancient and modern at once, by meals made up of special ingredients fuelled by fascination. In summertime, the dinner is served in the quiet and private lemon garden, where the guests can relish the scents and the cool evening breeze.
