Great Service and Atmosphere

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. Our servers were very friendly and made us feel at home. The ravioli and red table wine was excellent. The sea bass was a little too fishy, although it was prepared nicely. We loved the setting here.

This was the most romantic of our restaurant meals in Scicli. We went down the steps into the cave bit, there were no other tables taken. Some people might not like that but we loved being down there on our own. Food was delicious and service excellent. If it was full it is a bit cramped, but probably a great... More

We booked a table for 8.30pm and when we arrived the place was empty. By 9.15pm it was bursting at the seams! (Realized they eat late in Scicli!) The staff were very friendly, and the food excellent with a varied menu and specialities of the day. The decor is rustic and very cosy. We noted the chef came out of... More

During our stay in Sicily, we went to Scicli one night and decided to have dinner at the Ristorante La Grotta. We made a reservation at 20:30 but reached the restaurant half an hour earlier. As we expressed to the restaurant staff our intention to quickly go to the pasticceria Basile to get a few take-away cannoli, they were so... More

This restaurant is in a pretty location, just a little stroll from the main part of the town. Booking is essential (as it seemed to be across the whole area) and we arrived a little early which was not a problem. We encountered 3 waiters, two of whom were very welcoming; the third was rather sullen. The first courses were... More

The restaurant was full when we came to it, but the staff pulled another table outside and sat us quickly. There is a large range of pizzas to choose from and they are excellent - very fresh ingredients. The setting is pleasant - adjoining the cliffs and screened from the street. If you can, make a reservation.

We were staying in a villa in Scicli with American, British and Dutch friends and wanted an evening out. Scicli is a beautiful, small town, off the beaten track, located in a narrow V shaped valley bounded by high limestone cliffs. We booked a table for 8 persons on the afternoon of the evening we wanted to eat.... no problem.... More

A bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip!! We went for our first lunch in Sicily and walked into a quaint and authentic cave (so cool!) the service was amazing and personalized. We had the bruschetta, tomato salad, prawns and of course, 2 personal pizzas. The food was without a doubt delicious and truly authentic of the... More
