We went twice to this restaurant and had a great meal each time. The restaurant is based on a former flour mill and olive press, I assume looking at the artefacts. It is an interesting an unusual setting. We had sea-food couscous and various pasta dishes, which were excellent. The mushroom taglietelle was especially good with very tasty mushrooms and... More

I've been to Sicily twice and eaten here three times. It's my favorite restaurant in Italy. The appetizer selection is amazing and totally worth the price. The pizza is good. I've had first courses, second courses, and desserts. Loved it all. GREAT service and a lovely environment. I have a lot of good memories of this place and can't wait... More

We visited this restaurant on the weekend of Ferrogosto when it is very difficult to find a place to eat without reservations. We ate early and although we were a group of twelve the service was fantastic. Every member of our party enjoyed their food and at the end of the meal were presented with local biscotti and fortified wine.... More

Recommended by tourist information in Nicolosi. A fantastic find in charming surroundings. We went with the fixed price lunch and the owners recommendations. He provided veggie options for half our party which were delicious. Home made lemonade was marvellous. Go if you get the chance.

Perfect for a Saturday evening dinner. We had different appetizers and local wine. Kids had a great pizza, tasty from the wood oven. Prices are fair.

We were a party of three people and no one was satisfied with any part of our meal. Pasta sauce like wallpaper paste. Lemon tart that was like school dinners cake. House wine was rough. I can't think of anything which would encourage me to tell others to eat here.

Nice local restaurant. You need to pay attention when looking for the entrance, it is flush with the road and hard to see. Staff are welcoming and quality of the food was 5 star.
