My relatives that live in Sicily advised me to visit Pietro's restaurant. To start with I loved to see those real Sicilian carts and exposition of ancient tools and accessories. Pietro, the owner, made us feel at home. He told us the story of the restaurant put up by his father that was a cart carrier. The food was delicious, fresh fish well prepared with traditional recipies.
We started our meal with Sicilian style antipasto's: panelle (chick pea fritters) and bruschette. Then spaghetti with "ricci" (sea urchins) which was irresistible and grilled swordfish. We didn't make it for the dessert because the portions were abundant but now I regret not having tasted the homemade almond parfait. Great finish with original lemoncello prepared by Pietro's wife. I must say we payed only half the value of the meal.
I certainly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Pesce spada is the most delicious here along with different sorts of pizza, insalate and most of all I like the famous Limoncello di Pietro

We go to la Ruota every time we are in Cinisi, once or twice a year to see my family. I ve been going to la routa for more then 30 years; the quality, the atmosphere, the welcome has never changed. The food is fantastic, whatever is pizza alla gaspare, casarecce con ricci or fresh fish you won’t be disappointed. The starter buffet is very good and plenty of bread.
The place is run by the same family since I can remember and it is nice to be recognised after so long from the owner Pietro.
It does get very busy over summer time and week ends after 9pm; if you prefer a quieter dinner go just before 8 and book a table over the week end.
I love this place, so many memories!!
