Historic romance and elegance, delicious modified Italian cuisine, unique service quality,, remarkable wine menu and of course relatively high prices

My husband and I were looking for something special for our last night in Sicily, and we came across this place by chance. Food was delicious and not overwhelming, and the wine was expertly selected by the sommelier. We would thoroughly recommend this place.
