A group tour lunch and all that entails but delivered with some panache and style . Mostly vegetable based and perfectly adequate to demonstrate the cuisine of the area . Have confidence.

we were on a tour but this restaurant was not the best one of the tour. It was okay. There was cold meats , pasta , rice and fruit and coffee. It would have been better if you knew how things were coming to the table as some things that should have been hot were cold .

What a lovely place! Good food and wine, pleasantly served in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The only negative is the very steep downhill approach from the road. If you're unsteady on your pins, you might like to ask for a helping hand.

My family went to this restaurant this evening to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food was FANTASTIC! The staff spoke English and was extremely helpful and attentive. They even brought out some cake with candles for my wife. This was one of my best experiences and I have lived all over the world.

Searching for a restaurant with Google Maps within walking distance from our B&B we came across this restaurant and were surprised and happy to find it! Excellent typical Sicily food, good local white wine, extremely friendly, helpful and - worth mentioning – English speaking stuff. We spent 3 from our 6 evenings there and everything we tried was really good.... More

“OLD BARRELS”: a place where the tradition of yesterday becomes tribute and sophistication in the present.The restaurant has a warm and relaxing atmosphere in which the dishes of our land are proposed and interpreted with ever new creativity although maintaining their original uniqueness.Our project aims to convey the flavor of traditional Sicilian cuisine, the wines of Etna and our gastronomic culture which includes a wide choice of pizza (leavened and baked slowly into the wood oven).You will be welcomed in a relaxing environment and you will be pampered by our staff, in a landscape unique, situated on the slopes of Etna, and able to offer you glimpses of extraordinary beauty, where time seems to stand still.The large green open spaces surrounded by orange trees, a large indoor restaurant and the lounge pizzeria from which you can admire the restored ancient winery that has preserved the original structure of the "Old Barrels", once used for the production of wine and finally a small rustic room of 20 seats, ideal for candlelight dinners and / or business lunches or dinners, are just waiting to welcome you with the typical warmth of Sicilians and their homeland.
