“Genuine in a modern genuine way”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

There are two types of genuine: Old school wannabe touristic Disneyland fool old people fake "genuine" and just genuine. Il Sarchiapone is the latter.

The waiter doesn't smile and try to help you with the italian spoken menu in a "warm sicilian way", he just helps you and smiles and laughs because he is happy that you are here - and maybe even a little curious about you.

The food isn't genuine in a sloppy "we couldn't come up with anything better than boring out of age traditional dishes" way, it's genuine because the chef finds food interesting and wants to cook something exciting and special for the guests.

We had pasta a la nonna, it was one of the the best pastas we had in Italy. Then we had veal balls filled with with pistachio and cheese - they where amazing!

Under the restaurant La Siciliana someone wrote: "Nice service, but I prefer to go to restaurants with good food". Far to often Tripadvisor favourites are the kind of places where the owners are charismatic and nice, but the place itself isn't really that good.

Il Sarchiapone do in every way deserve to be the #1 restaurant in Capo D'Orlando. If you only have one night: Go there. If you have a week: Return.
