The food was awesome and the service impeccable! Loved every moment of it! The fish is great as and the antipasti are the speciality of the house. The home made wine they have is also very good.

We read the reviews about Il Locandiere on TripAdvisor and eagerly looked forward to eating there. We were not disappointed. We had reservations and were immediately seated at a table of our choice that was impeccably set and attended to by a nice young man named Fabrizio. We ordered an excellent local Caltagirone white wine and later a bottle of Sicilian Grillo – also excellent. Fabrizio, who kept a close-eye on us and made sure every detail was tended to immediately.

Fabrizio suggested an antipasto tasting menu consisting of a whole plate of mussels, rolled prosciuto with pine nuts and Italian parsley, sliced tangerines with pine nuts and Italian parsley, and various shellfish (lobster, crab, and shrimp). My wife ordered ricotta cheese ravioli, and I had grilled fish. For dessert, we had a wonderful cannoli topped with a hot-fig sauce that looked like whipped cream.

We loved every bite of every course. The food was equal to the best that we had ever had, anywhere, including at the Michelin-starred restaurants to which we’d been in Sicily. Our dinner totaled 90,00€.

This was a small restaurant with the most wonderful and memorable seafood and service. The seafood sausage looked so amazing that four of us had to have some, then there was a bruschetta so carefully made with fresh herbs and finely cut peppers, olive oil-brushed bread and that was just the beginning. The pasta dishes were excellent, each created with great skill and care and the taste...memorable - and that was just two courses. The wines were excellent, so reasonably priced and the red decanted with love, 'don't even try it for 2 minutes'; then it was poured with the care found in Michelin star restaurants and we were the only four there. This is a great find; a gourmet experience and a wonderful memory. Maybe we should have kept it a secret, but they deserve to be known.
