We come to this restaurant every year for past 4 years. We always make a point to drive here all the way from Sferracavallo.

Veniamo in questo ristorante ogni anno da oltre 4 anni. Facciamo sempre un punto per guidare qui da Sferracavallo.

We went here straight after Easter ceremony and procession. If you haven't booked you need to leave the procession early as this seems like the only restaurant in town serving Easter lunch. It is a fixed menu as the whole restaurant is taken, LOTS of food and house wine. We loved the local atmosphere, the generosity of the staff, the sundried tomatoes as part of the antipasti platter were delicious and their cannoli yummy.

Definitely recommend if you are in town for the Easter events. Cute little town as well.

It's very hard to find places to eat that don't just serve pizza this restaurant was omg amazing the food was 5 stars the staff are friendly and they speak some English which is rare in this part For starters the bruchetta Was like a main course , in Italy you have to say no blood as they don't understand the meaning of well done the steak was mouth watering delicious and im very odd when it comes to meat ,the potatoes were fried it was the most amazing meal I have ever had .if you are visiting the church if you look down the road you can see it to your left really really worth a visit

This Trattoria was recommended to us by locals and we were not disappointed. Don't expect a menu, the owner will fill you in on the specials of the day. Fresh homemade pasta, perfectly grilled variety of meat, yummy veggies and of course a huge bowl of local oranges, mandarines and grapefruit. Ordering was fun! In between our very limited knowledge of Italian and their bumpy English we still got what we wanted accompanied by huge smiles and the best service one could ask for! Grazie!

This family run establishment is a true find, off the beaten track but well worth the visit. There are no menus as such, and the Signora tells you the dishes on offer. Then the experience begins, wonderful ham, cheese, salami, dried tomatoes etc. followed by homemade pasta dishes and then probably the best steak in Sicily!
