This multilevel but compact restaurant with an unusual name - we didn’t ask but, based on phonetics, presume it’s a variant on the Italian for salt cod - is located next to a building worth seeing for its remarkable balconies and most exuberant cornices and other decorations. The restaurant has outside seating and seems to specialize in seafood prepared in... More

Enjoyed our lunch very much. We found this place almost by accident. It's tucked back off the main tourist streets. But sure glad we found it. Definitely a seafood place. The pastas were fresh and flavorful as well. Wine selection was good. You have to like sardines to enjoy the mixed seafood appetizer. Would definitely go back.

We went to this restaurant after reading good reviews, especially on this website. But of all the places I have eaten in during three trips to Sicily this was the the most disappointing. We had not booked but that did not seem to be a problem as we didn't want to sit outside that evening as it was a little... More

This is a modern if low-key restaurant that simply serves the freshest of fresh fish and seafood. The kitchen is open so you can see exactly what's going on. We opted for a taster of assorted fish and seafood that was simply outstanding and all washed down with a good house white wine. Unbelieveably, the bill came to just over... More

Six of us wandered into Baqqala in the early afternoon. We were very impressed with the menu items and we ordered a mix of pastas and mains: one dish each. We all loved our choices. We were very well looked after by our server and could truthfully tell the chef that everything was wonderful.

The restaurant is in an interesting location and has a nice ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful. Even though they didn't have any vegetarian choices they cooked something very nice for me and my partner said her fish dish was delicious. Had the nicest mozzarella / tomato salad I have had for a long time.

Thank fumblefish

In uno degli scenari piu suggestivi del barocco siciliano, a Scicli, riapre le porte, vestito di nuovo, il BAQQALa.

L' oasi gourmet affacciata al palazzo beneventano, vi proporra una collezione di piatti di ispirazione mediterranea che celebrano il gusto e l'intelletto, dove sentori e sfumature si fondono in armoniosi tripudi di gusto e colore. Largo alle materie prime di qualita...La natura e servita grazie ad essenze, verdure, e soprattutto pesce rigorosamente freschi.
