Wonderful meal and service at la Botte. The vongole 'was the best I have ever tasted - and it's my favorite dish so I've ordered it often when we visit Italian restaurants. The young man who served us was attentive but not hovering. We loved the freshness of the pasta and the quiet, calmness of this restaurant. Wonderful experience!

Delicious caprese salad, excellent pasta with sardines, fresh seafood carpaccio and rich tomatoe flavored mussel soup. All served expertly by a good staff. Restaurant was full and vibrant.

We went to La Botte for lunch and had the daily special which was Tagliatelle con Funghi Porcini and Lampuki alla Messinese. The pasta was cooked to perfection and the fish was cooked in a lovely sauce with fresh tomatoes, olives and capers. The service was quick and courteous. The atmosphere is familiar and cosy. All in all I would... More

The fish set menu was fantastic and a very good value!! 3 courses of fresh fish with a salad that was cooked really well for €26. Looks like a family restaurant as well with the grandmother and grandson at the back of the place.

We tried unsuccessfully to get into Ristorante La Brace at the last minute. They suggested we try La Botte. Our food was quite good, and our waitress was spot on with her wine suggestion. It's near the cathedral.

2 persons out of 5 had swordfish with capperi in tomoto source. It was far too salty. Other 2 had at slide of swordfish in pistaccio that was ok. Also the spaghetti with vongole veraci was ok. It took 45 min to get the food despite few guests in the restaurant. Friendly service but overall not value for money.

This has been among the very best meals we have had in our 4 + weeks in Sicily. The usual Siciliano fare was taken up a notch. The food was innovative and delicious. The service could not have been more gracious. We will be back.

We had an excellent meal here after we made the wise decision to avoid the restaurants in the square outside the cathedral. We were the last table at lunch and it was after the closing time, but they did not rush us at all. Delicious food and great service. It is a family run business and the care and attention... More
