We had a wine tasting for our group of 10 and it was an amazing and fun experience. Gilberto really enjoyed sharing the wines and stories with us. They had great nibbles to go with the wine tasting courses. It was a wonderful evening. They have a great wine selection and we did buy a number of bottles too. They... More

We dropped by Gilberto's for an evening drink after our Stromboli trip (located close to Marina Corta). We tried local red and white wines from the Salina island, finished off with the Malvasia dessert wine. For wines by the glass, the choices are mainly Sicilian wines. Very friendly service, would recommend for an evening drink.

We went to this restaurant because of the reviews for a glass of wine before supper.The elderly man who served us a glass played it up as something special. The wine was old the tannins thick and it tasted like syrup.I am convinced it was wine in an opened bottle that had been sitting around for several days. We never... More

We wandered in after dinner one night and had a great evening drinking very affordable wine. We came back for lunch the following day, and the sandwiches are some of the best we've had across Sicily

A walhalla for wine lovers, at least 30 wines by the glass. Alessia knows the wines very well and can give good advice. A large choice in wines by the glass in both white and red. Dishes are quite big, one or at most two form a complete meal. For the wines and the atmosphere it certainly deserves its high... More
