“Tasty Sicilian dishes, friendly staff”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

After reading the mostly positive Tripadvisor reviews, we had high expectations. Not only were our expectations met, but they were exceeded. We really enjoyed various tasty sicilian dishes that were offered and having pleasant conversation with the friendly staff. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking an authentic Sicilian culinary experience.

“Great place to eat if you like surprises and seafood”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We loved this restaurant and came across it walking in town. There is no menu. We had what we were given and the food was great. If you are not keen on seafood don't go. Overall a great restaurant with good service.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

My wife and I had a fantastic meal at Osteria il Grappolo in early November, 2012. Our waiter, Claudio, was great! Even though he spoke no English, we had no problems whatsoever in communication throughout the evening.

I had read so many compliments about the octopus carpaccio that I had to try it and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I also tried the "fish ravioli" because it sounded so unique. Again, not a disappointment. My wife had pasta w. sardines, a typical Sicilian dish, and mixed fried fish. We generally avoid a lot of fried foods, but this was prepared perfectly and was not greasy at all. Our total bill for 2 primo piati, 2 secondi, water and a liter of wine was 50 Euros.

Our compliments to chef Salvatore Ciaccio, and to our wonderful server, Claudio.

“Best meal of our trip”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We went here largely because it was just downstairs from where we were staying. It turned out to be a good choice: nice atmosphere, good house wine, superb food, friendly service - all at a reasonable price. I had ordered the octopus carpaccio as a starter (to be followed by pasta and a fillet steak) and loved it so much that I cancelled my order for the steak and had another carpaccio instead. Absolutely superb - I have posted a photo. My wife had the mixed seafood hors d'oeuvres, pasta and fish and was equally impressed. Unfortunately, they were closed the following day, so we couldn't go back.

“GREAT VALUE”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Fresh fish (we had seabass in saltcrust which was
excellent) typical sicilan starters and pasta and the
whole family enjoyed all the dishes. Charming service
and reasonable prices in a nice Sicilian Trattoria.
