This place has everything I have been looking for on our vacation. Great simple home made food.Great selection of wines and dine with the local. . All dishes are simple and prepared with fresh local ingredients. The pasta is just the best I've tried during my travels to Italia, which are already some. The owner is just a great guy, and will explain you what is in each dish. And the prices are really reasonable. if you go to S. Agata di Militello or close to it, have a try. it is worth. Brilliant!

We were guided to Trattoria La Currubba by its many positive reviews on Trip Advisor and ate there last weekend. We speak no Italian and our waitress spoke very little English, but she made us feel extremely welcome and we were given a lovely table on the terrace overlooking the town of Sant'Agata and the sea. The restaurant offered a range of meat-based dishes from the Nebrodi region of Sicily (an interesting alternative to other more 'fishy' restaurants that we ate at along the Tyrrhenian coast). We loved our antipasti starters, which were a combination of cold meats, beautifully prepared veg and mixed breads. The highlight for me was my main course of veal with Porcini mushrooms, which was cooked to perfection with a truly wonderful flavour. My husband had the ombrellino chicken, which was also delicious, although be warned, you need to leave plenty of room for it as it's massive. One other tip for any English-speaking visitors (and I know I'm only stating the obvious here) is to go armed with a decent phrase book to make sure you know exactly what you're ordering - I'm ashamed to say it took us several minutes to realise that we were eating one anothers' main courses! Oh and do try the limoncello digestif - it's fab. A great meal and extremely good value - definitely one to recommend.

You should eat at thisTrattoria if you like or miss a great home cooked traditional meal. A great family atmosphere where food is to die for! The waiter was attentive, funny and made welcome and really good suggestions.
Although we did not have a reservation, we were seated with in just a few moments of our arrival.
The homemade maccheroni was delicious! I was totally bummed when I was finished - and I am not a pasta lover!
The ombrellino chicken melted in my mouth, and the carpaccio was also delicious. The other food items and wine were great. Overall, this is an excellent place and we will definitely go back!!
