This restaurant is a true gem. We had dinner there on our first night in Licata.. could not have hoped for a better start to our holiday. The restaurant is cute and charming, hidden in a little side street in the center of Licata.
Chiara, the hostess, is extremely nice and knowledgeable, she wouldn’t stop smiling and she was extremely helpful when we asked her to help with the wine. The food was spectacular, from the first to the last course! Ingredients were extremely fresh, portions perfectly sized and everything was authentic (I am Italian, not saying this randomly). Wish I could remember the name of the courses we ordered. The Cannolo is a must-order.. I am still dreaming of it! This was, with no doubt, the best meal we had during our week in Sicily. And to top it all, prices are absolutely reasonable for this quality of food: 2 primi, 2 secondi, 1 desert, half a bottle of wine, desert wine and coffee for approx. Eur100. Absolutely recommended!

We got to this lovely little gem in the centre of licata almost by chance during our recent trip to sicily and we could not stop from returning multiple times.

Chef Peppe Bonsignore really strikes your imagination (and your appetite) by revisiting some of the local traditional dishes with flair and creativity. The fresh and evocative "Passeggiata sul lungomare", the revisited " pasta alla norma", the tasty "espressione di un territorio" and the mighty "cannolo" (both in the refined and more baroque and traditional versions) are just some of the reasons why one should keep returning to l'oste e il sacrestano.

Wine selection is great, focusing on sicilian wines without forgetting other excellent italian choices. Chiara is in charge of this and will surely suggest the most appropriate wine to go with your lunch/ dinner. Try the zibibbo secco, flavinia, cerasuolo di vittoria or simply indulge on one of the many nero d'avola available.

In a nutshell definitely worth a visit whether you stop by licata on a tour or stay nearby. And if you sail to the licata marina you must get off the boat and walk 500 metres to visit this place!

Difficult to find in the narrow streets of this surprising little town of Licata but certainly an experience to remember. 5/6 tables, bistrot style, need reservation. Let the cook and owner guide you through a discovery of Sicilian food you'll enjoy. Not fancy but with lots of substance.

This was probably the best dining experience on my three week trip through Italy and possibly the best pasta dish I have ever had. The owners were very helpful and informative about the food and shared a lot of history of Sicilian food. Don't miss the canolli.

High quality food, friendly service and rightly priced. It should be located in Catania or Palermo for a greater audience. Superlative.
