We tried this restaurant after it was recommended by our apartment owner - and weren't disappointed by the superb meal we ate. Built into the cliffside and with its cave dining room, La Grotta looks amazing and provides food and service to match. Each dish was a traditional Italian classic, with a slight twist supplied by the chef. Both the... More

Charming place eked out of a real cave with little nooks and crannies. Small, not many tables. Looks family run. It was just a very nice dinner, nicely served in an original and friendly ambience with excellent food and wine at a reasonable cost. Scicli by night is lovely and so was this place.

The quality of the ingridient it's excellent, but what I think is really outstanding it's the capaticy of serving Sicilian dishes relaborate with a twist, they always manage... More

The setting is amazing, ancient rooms carved into the rock and then fantastically decorated. The meal was excellent and the staff really efficient and friendly.

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!

Another recommendation from our hotel.... 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
