While doing some reach on a Sicilian tour we had an enjoyable dinner here. The dinner started with an assortment of seafood, each prepared very well. Our pasta dishes had lots of wonderful flavor and the local white wine was a crisp and refreshing compliment on a hot summer night. I'd rate them excellent if it wasn't for the service... More

A quiet place to eat . Good food, not quite the normal stuff, and at reasonable prices. Depending on the season booking in advance could be required.

I have been travel in Sicily to explore the cuisine and this place is the reason why I visit Scicli. I thought I could never make it because in Aug they are open only for dinner which would make me late for the last train. However Luca was kind enough to let me try his creation before the open time,... More

Probably we were influenced by the very good ranking of this restaurant in Scicli, but I am sorry to say that it is not what one could think it is. Service is average , in food there is some imagination but nothing special. The place is nicer than expected and the night we stayed there were many families with kids... More

Having stayed in Scicli several times we were interested to try different restaurants and seeing how this was rated as number two in the town on Trip Advisor, it seemed like a good place to eat. It is located down a side street with the only indication being its illuminated sign that is visible from the main Via Nazionale. We... More

We had a wonderful dinner, seated outside on an evening when most had decided to eat inside. Staff were nonetheless attentive and we enjoyed the personal space. The food is very imaginatively presented and obviously served with great pride - for this, it is also very good value. The starters in particular were exceptional. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely meal here. You will not be disappointed. Nice ambiance and surroundings. English speaking restaurant owner was very attentive and helped us choose great meals. I had the squid (excellent) and my friend had a beautifully presented meal. The chef appeared during the meal to check all was okay. Try this restaurant!

Went on a recommendation from Viviana at Planeta Buonovini winery. Had spent a hot afternoon and evening touring baroque Scicli and we're tired when we went to dinner. We were expecting something basic and man, were we surprised. Both had a pasta dish made with tiny squares of carob flour pasta, eggplant, small local tomatoes, her's with prawns, mine vegetarian....

We were part of an Australian food tour and recently visited this restaurant. The atmosphere and decoration was excellent but the food was ordinary. It was very noisy and hard to hear due to excessive notice from other diners. The restaurant owners should consider noise dampening procedures for their restaurant. Food was good, not outstanding.

Great choice in Scicli. Chef made custom menu for us for 35 Euros pp. Couldn't finish it, and all was excellent. Located in an old granary. Best to like fish.
