“poor food, owner ignorant”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

We ordered a pork main meal which was ok, and two lamb main meal, these where very salty. We ordered artichokes and other vegetables to go with the main course which went cold very quickly. We told the waiter who informed the manager, he explained some foods were cooked in the microwave, we think alot was done in the microwave as we were siting opposite the kitchen,where a chef stould for most of the time at the doorway. we could hear a ping just before a meal was bought into the restaurant. We told the owner this , he said it wasn't all cooked in the microwave and invited me into the kitchen. I've done my share of working in kitchens and have never been in one so cool. We think they must do all the cooking at lunchtime, then heat it up in the microwave for the evening meal. The waiters did there best, but at no time did anyone ask as they normally do if everything was ok, and the attitude of the owner was bad.We would advise everyone to avoid this place.

“outstanding local cooking !”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

We were two times in this restaurant during a 2-weeks stay in Cefalu. To our tastes, the best in Castelbuono : more refined and interesting than the number one Nangalarunni (which is good, of course). The owner is very well-attentioned, ready to give you explanations about local products. He even made us a present with a small can of oil that was just exceptional.

Do not miss this place !
