The starters were really good. The same with the steak. Even the vino de casa was quite good. The prices are fair.

From the cold sweet almond wine we started with to the Orecchiette Vicolo the food was fabulous. The pizza was delicious too. Highest recommendation! And set with such views over the sea and towns Castelmola is not to be missed!

The restaurants and cafes nearer the main viewpoint of the town were busy and so we looked around to find somewhere for an early lunch. Found this place about 50 metres back. Pleasant little place; we elected to sit on the terrace as it was...More
