Wanted to have dinner here and arrived at 20.30, we entered the main room and we asked to a waiter for a table for two. One lady , guess the owner or the manager , it really doesn' t matter, look at us and without even saying "Buonasera" or "come posso aiutarvi (how can I help you)" just told us : come back at 21,30 or 22,00 , fully booked. Not a phrase like ....I am sorry....or whatever....well ....in my opinion you may also have the best food in the whole world but there is something you won't never buy.....class and courtesy.... We went out and will never come back !

This is the one and only worth it restaurant in Noto. Friendly, english speaking stuff, first class food, reasonable price. You must try Fino fino al pistacchio - its addictive! Just make sure you make your reservation on time - this place can get very busy, because it is very popular.

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. We enjoyed the home-made, fresh pasta and delicious starters and deserts. I can highly recommend the raw shrimp in fried, rolled Italian cheese. We had pasta with pistachio and shrimps also in other restaurants in Sicily, but this dish here was the most delicious. The sauce was made with ricotta, fresh salt-water shrimps and pistachio from Bronte (the best Sicilian pistachio come from Bronte on the bottom of Etna). Come to Noto in the late afternoon and make a reservation right away, then enjoy the golden sunset in the beautiful city, which seems a lot less touristy then Syracuse.

There are certainly better restaurants in Noto (mota 86, meliora, crocifiso) if you want to spoil yourself, but this one is still worth a visit. It is unpretentious, friendly/hospitable, lovely food and wine, and exceptional value for those who can't afford to fine dine every meal. Really liked it, and we went back during our stay. In short scrummy food which is affordable (and my daughter would say that it has brilliant chips too!).
