I spent 2 days in Noto. I had my lodge close to this restaurant. Always with the doubt: To try or Not to try. I tried just because I wanted to taste the pasta alla norma and even if it was not included in the menu, they prepared it just for me. And it was very good. I had a... More

Found this by accident on a city wander. Too early, so were offered a glass of prosecco outside at cafe tables while we waited. Wonderful cool interior, clean simple decor. Crisp linen, stylish cutlery and glassware. Food to match - classy, tasty, immaculate presentation. Knowledgeable, friendly, ultra efficient staff. Totally unpretentious - just excellent food, lovely staff and overall a... More

Restaurant is located at 7 minutes walking from the historical center. It s a small nice restaurant, elegantly decorated. The staff is nice. They serve traditional food with local ingredients in a revised manner. The result is good. It is worth trying it if you are in Noto.

After winding your way through the gorgeous sunlight baroque buildings of Noto, you find yourself at this absolute gem of restaurant. The world's most handsome chef came to our table and recommended specific pasta dishes, which all turned out to be heavenly. I had the best seafood pasta on my 3-week trip here - amazingly still pink but succulent shrimp,... More

The overall experience was very positive. Great menu selection and interesting variety of fish and meat options. Service was professional and although we were quite late, we were not given the impression that they were waiting for us to close the restaurant for the afternoon. There was attention to detail in the way food was presented but without being pretentious... More

Pretentious restaurant, average quality food, i was expecting more, the location in a quite position in the high part of Noto. Nice ambient, the service was good, the food in the average, nothing special, they serve a very good Sicilian olive oil that i knew "Terraliva".

I have been here many times and it is consistently excellent. A wonderful melding of traditional Sicilian flavors and a most creative and passionate chef. Also in an interior that is sleek, but not slick and service that is outstanding, but not obtrusive. I have a pet peeve of high concept restaurants that forget they are "feeding" people. This is...

A restaurant tucked away in a mainly residential area away from the town centre and up several flights of stairs. Worth the walk ? - I'm not sure. On first arrival you get the impression that this is quite a formal restaurant but this proved not to be the case (shorts seemed a bit out of place until other casually... More

Crocifisso came highly recommended. Made a reservation and really looked forward to dinner here with friends. Sadly a mistake was made with the booking and we had to find somewhere else to have dinner. Maybe next time, but will ask for written confirmation next time....

Elegant atmosphere in this restaurant a long walk from the town centre. Food was good but not outstanding, the rabbit was substandard, not worth the long walk. €50 / primo, secundo, bottle of wine, water, coffee.
