As a local living abroad I never fail to visit La Polena with my family and my wife whenever I'm back. The owner Sebastiano is a great Sicilian chef who has spent time in Japan and has created an awesome menu of Sicilian delicacies infused with oriental touches, making dining at La Polena a delightful culinary experience. Last night we went again for our wedding anniversary and again the staff at La Polena made it a very special one. Special thanks to Sebastiano who took care of our table with very attentive service, surprising us with complimentary prosecco, anniversary cake and a majestic boat of Sicilian sashimi to die for! We will always keep coming back and highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to indulge in great Sicilian food and wine at very reasonable price.

By chance we found this gem! Our host Mauro made our day. We had a very pleasant lunch with wonderful food. A whole new experience. A couple of complimentary dishes which gave us a taste of Sicily. Best food we had in Sicily during our 11 day stay.
