In a quiet square in old Catagirone. Service excellent; the Sicilian wine choice extensive. Sadly, no Nero Davola rosato the night we were there. The food was very good, simply presented and tasty. Very popular with Italian families which is a good sign, and stays...More

This restaurant is tucked away in a quiet piazza not far from the center of Caltagirone. Excellent quality seafood dishes, a wide variety of Sicilian wines, and creatively prepared grilled vegetables. Customers mostly local families. Staff and service were great, prices reasonable. Highly recommend.

If you want great Sicilian food and wonderful service, go here. The lovely Samantha served us and recommended what we would order. She did an amazing job and we had an incredible meal. We waddled out at the end, full and very happy!

Had a great lunch here. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. If you visit in the off season don't expect any english spoken here. Small restaurant on a nicely hidden square off the beaten path. A must in Caltigirone,

Authentic. Very friendly owners. We had antipasti, fish, and steak. Fresh products. Good place. A bit hidden quiet square. You can park your car in front. Recommended on terrace outside.

There dont seem to be many restaurants in the old part of town so we were lucky to find this one. Great location, service, and excellent food. We had salmon in a pink pepper sauce and a chicken parissienne that were certainly one the best...More

Driving directions make this restaurant hard to reach but the it is well worth the effort. Our Sunday lunch was wonderfully prepared and served in a casual, local style. The pepper mussels were tender and tasty in a not-too-hot thin olive oil and tomato liquid...More
