Ate at La Grotta last night inside the cave. Very atmospheric, excellent and friendly service and food prepared with local ingredients and with care. Shared codfish salad with rosti starter, grouper with saffron sauce, steak and salted potatoes mains with orange and fennel salad plus bottle of wine two coffees and grappas. All excellent, would recommend.

This restaurant is wonderful. Just the presentation itself and the restaurant is quite nice. Everything we ate had a uniqueness. Herbs and spices used in a very original way. My favorite part. The ricotta based dessert. Wow! This place is a must try! Buon appetito!

This particular town is one of our favourites in Sicily...and this restaurant is kind of tucked away - built in a grotto- but we actually ate outside ...I do believe that sometimes you eat in the grotto itself ... We were ushered to our table and straight away knew that our meal was going to... More

Of course is the best and authentic restaurant in scicli. The chef angelo cooks with passion. Unforgettable the "Guazzetto with cous cous - seafood " and " zafferano rice with red prawn and calamari " and " sea food starter of La Grotta". Reccomended

We booked the restaurant after reading some reviews, which were generally favourable. There are several options in Scicli and we were staying in a villa nearby. We were drawn by the idea of a restaurant using a room partially using an ancient cave. We ate outside and the service was attentive, if a little over-enthusiastic to clear away plates. We... More

Lovely meal and the staff were fantastic especially rossita however the menu was not very varied and more to a locals taste than us tourists use to a wide variety at every restaurant however what I did eat was pleasant and the location is just fabulous.

We stayed four nights in Scicli and had our best meal at La Grotta. This was also one of our best meals of our whole 10 day stay in Sicily. The food is absolutely delicious, the tables are in a lovely garden, with a few tables indoors in a cave, and the service is excellent and very friendly. All of... More

Food in this place is simply amazing, we go to Sicily twice a year but we never skip this restaurant. Very unique traditional Sicilian cuisine and very efficiently run restaurant. Very good and friendly service. My favorite dessert is mousse di ricotta!! Don't miss it!
