“Very pleasant and tasteful dinner in Caltagirone”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

We were biking in Sicily last week and spent a night in Caltagirone. The B&B where we stayed adviced us to go the this restaurant located very close to the Piazza del Municipio (the central square of the old town). The service was very cheerful and the food delicious. We especially appreciated the mixed plate of vegetable antipasti.

“A really good meal”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We can highly recommend this restaurant. The food was very good, and we received a very warm and friendly welcome. The antipastorustico was a real treat, with typically Sicilian specialities. And anexcellent Cerasuolo wine.

“Good food & friendly”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Just dropped into this place, quite in the centre of Caltagirone. The service was first class, and so was the food. Real, Italian, tasty. Sitting outside the restaurant was a really good experience.

“Cosy place, friendly owners, good food”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice little restaurant that may be off the beaten track in Caltagirone but is well worth seeking out. It's a pretty small place - especially so when we visited on a rainy evening & the outside tables were closed - but in a pleasant, cosy kind of way. Anima, who is one of the owners, was our waitress and she was very friendly and helpful despite our inadequate grasp of the Italian language. We went for the octopus carpaccio to start, which may sound scary but was really delicious and is highly recommended. For mains we both went for swordfish - mine was grilled & served with roast potatoes which was very good while  my wife's was the centrepiece of a pasta dish that she was also more than happy with. €40 for two including half a litre of wine and a bottle of sparkling water. Great value given the quality of the food.
