Donnas is an experience. They're hidden down a skinny alley in Motta near the castle but well worth the hunt. If you're interested in seafood I suggest the sea bass and mussels. Both are excellent!

I've been there 8 times, decent food, most foods are pretty rich. Pizza's are great, pasta is decent. They have many usually foods that are neat to try, I don't taste consistence here, hit or miss on chef I'm guessing.

One of our first stops in Sicily. American friendly, but maybe a little pricey. We'll be back for sure...
