We were very welcome at Torre del Gheppio. The place is really quite and beautiful. The food is excellent and the owner, Santo is a really nice person. We went there as a group of 8 photographers and were treated top class. I really suggest others to book this place and will not be disappointed. Hope to go there again... More

When you arrive you know it is going to be good. The smell of the food and the pleasant greeting from the host make a very nice impression. I have been there many times and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend the experience.

Thanks to trip advisor found this restaurant tucked away in the countryside outside of Piedimonte Etna. Food was very good, home cooking at its best. NIce service and good music made for a relaxing lunch with family. Recommend.

This place is tucked about 1/2 mile off of the road with amazing close up views of Etna from the yard. We were delighted with the beautiful stone and wood house and it signaled that we were going to have a special meal there.

This restaurant is not in Piedimonte Etneo as advertised but about 5 minutes drive away. The views are stunning and it is really nicely set out. The reason for the average score was for two reasons, service was really slow and the food portions were quite small. I am aware I have to be careful when saying service is slow... More

Excellent meals made with love of the Sicilian heritage. We visit often and are always greeted as if we're coming home to nonnas. Highly recommended for an afternoon meal or romantic dinner in the beautiful atmosphere only Torre del Gheppio can do

My wife and I had a wonderful afternoon enjoying all kinds of great typical Sicilian dishes. I had limited cash and it is not (yet?) possible to pay with creditcard here but that was all no problem for the friendly owner and waiters.
