Terrific little restaurant with space for just 20-25 covers, so be sure to book. The menu is all fish which is cooked and presented to a very high standard. Our group shared a mixture of starters followed by a variety of mains and all were superb. We chose this restaurant for our last evening meal of the summer holiday because... More

This was our third trip to Scicli and our third visit to Baqqala. A key word of warning to anyone wishing to eat here is that you really need to book; they can accommodate about 25 diners at a time and for dinner they offer 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm reservations. We popped in the previous evening and reserved for... More

We went for lunch today 26/7/16 and it was fantastic. The outside seating is lovely and has a breeze. The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. The starters were very tasty. Then we had the bottarga with spaghetti. This was recommended by a Sicilian friend who brought some guests here only a month ago. Yes, it is slightly salty... More

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

In uno degli scenari piu suggestivi del barocco siciliano, a Scicli, riapre le porte, vestito di nuovo, il BAQQALa.
Il baqqala nasce dal desiderio di creare un luogo legato alla tradizione della cultura gastronomica, offrendo un ambiente confortevole fatto di luoghi caldi e personali dove le persone possano ritrovare i propri riferimenti di gusto e il calore dell'ambiente familiare.
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.
