We went for dinner at la madia and had the 8 course fish degustation. Pino takes the highest quality local ingredients with classic Sicilian flavour combinations and creates visual, taste and texture masterpieces. This is a chef at top of his culinary powers and they fully deserve their 2 Michelin stars. Pino came out to speak with us a couple... More

Nothing special about the food. The mozzarella with tomato spremuta was incredible. The other 5 dishes were ok. Definitely not worth the visit to Licata and the price. Service has a lot to improve.

I've been here a couple of years ago but I am sure this place only knows improvement. Probably the best food I've ever tasted: all of Sicilian flavour and fantasy without the excesses. A party for your senses. Plus Pino Cuttaia and his family are very welcoming, warm and passionate about their art.

I've had my fair share of 2-3 Michelin star restaurants in my time (Noma, Arzak, Gordon Ramsay Royal Hospital Road, The Fat Duck, Dinner by Heston, just to name a few) This one however will always be unique and special. Outside the town looks dodgy and dirty, but as you go in you feel like you have been transported to... More

Amazing culinary experience in a wonderfully-set restaurant. Contrary to the shabbiness in the street outside, just walking in to the restaurant was refreshing. At first, it seemed they had some problem with our booking, but they immediately sorted things out, and as soon as we were seated, the chef/owner Pino Cuttaia came over to apologise for the mishap. From then... More

Pino Cuttaia is a master chef who deserves every inch of his 2 stars, and a third one already. Location might not be so easy to find but from the moment you enter the restaurant you know you're gonna be happy. Superb service, creative, yet incredible food. Just perfect.

We were touring Sicily and an old colleague of mine said that we HAD to go to La Madia. It's a Michelin starred restaurant that revisits all Sicilian traditional food - and oh my god it was worth it! We went for the full menu. The reconstructed mozzarella was incredible (a true highlight), and so were all the other starters.... More

The food here was truely excellent. Three tasting menus. Although we had 10 courses (there did not seem an alternative) as we only wanted three.. Having said that the food was very very good and well worth two Michelin stars.. Highly recommended

As a Cordon Bleu, Paris trained chef, I know a bit about about food. I can honestly say that with some of the nine preparations served us in the Fish and Seafood Degustation Menu, "I do not know how Pino Cuttaia did what he did". All of the preparations were flawless; the presentations enticing. He has the unique ability to... More

What had to be the highlight of gastronomy on our trip in Sicily ended in minor. When we entered the restaurant the fist thing that overwhelmed us was the smell of fresh paint. An irritating smell that stayed in our nose until we left the restaurant. Some of the dishes were very tasteful, but others were totally not. One of... More
