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

A beautiful example of modern Italian cuisine and decor,this restaurant carries New York prices but priceless imagination. As usual in fine dining in Sicily, lunch included an amuse bouche and appetizer in addition to our pasta and entree. All were delicious, but the appetizer, or "chef's welcome", a concoction of fresh mozzarella "skin" and foam encasing what they called a... More

We booked this restaurant in advance wondering what we would find. The reviews we read were all very positive. We chose one of the tasting menus, unfortunately some of the dishes that I most wanted to try were not available that night. So our waiter, who was very kind and attentive, suggested some substitutions. Unfortunately we could not say the... More
