During our stay in Noto we met a lovely couple that runs a b&b in the town. They advice us to go and eat in Trattoria Fontana d'Ercole and we weren't disappointed. The food was genuinely good and fresh. The lady chef knows exactly how to bring good flavors on the table and it does it with simplicity. The prices... More

Recommended by our hotel we loved this little trattoria - the pasta was delicious some of the best we have had. We had to wait 45 minutes for a table in a local bar so I suggest reserving a table. Price was great 2 course and wine each €50

we came with my wife after a while for a dinner again and the only disappointing was that we have to wait ..... Not because of tourist but because of many local families who are use to eat at Corado restaurant. I really don't like to made a reservation (especially when you are just two) but sometimes is recommended. there... More

we had an early dinner; party of 6, including 2 kids (aged 2 and 3). there were no high chairs or cushions or even a couple of spare tablecloths to help the kids reach the table. The staff were not very helpful or aware of what was on the menu (to properly describe it and inform on allergens etc). The... More

We were sent to this place by the very competent lady of Modica tourist office. It was Sunday, loud and very busy, however the staff, which probably consist of family members were attentive, quick and friendly. The food was delicious - excellent home cooking at very reasonable prices. A real Sicilian family trattoria.

Excellent food, great ambiance and spectacular service. The owner itself take your order and also recommend you the most amazing dishes. If you don't have a reservation (and are not starving) they can write your name down for later and you can wait in the cafe next door which is own by themselves so they come looking for you when...

We went to this trattoria upon recommendation from our host. First the positive: the food was good, but the second dish likely warmed up in the microwave (extremely hot, all throughout, but taste was ok). The service was terrible: had to wait for almost an hour for our main dish, had to ask for water glasses and for a replacement... More

This was a nice experience! Portions are good, food is nice although the risotto di mare could have a more deep taste. Zuppa di cocce is absolutely a must and the pasta with pistacchio is super super nice, very different and worth to try!!
