Went along with TA reviews - matched promises - tucked away from town centre
Excellent meal, charming decor, English spoken, impressive wine list
Served mouth watering bruschetta, pasta & veal - donkey was an option!!
Even the house wine was delectable
Treated to sublime dessert wines & cantucci on the house!!
Bellissimo Grazie Mille ...

We went for there for diner after a long day wandering around Etna. We were not in the mood for too much guessing - but when asking for a fixed price menu we were told that the special of today is that there is no fixed price menu - we liked it and where given several recommendations - none of them on the menu but all of those we took were excellent - a cheese salad, a ton Sicilian preparation, and lamb an pork with with sweet onions. The house wine was nothing to write home about (I would have expected a better option). And the desert was superlative ricotta cheesecake. Prices were somewhat high for the area but perhaps justified by quality.

After arriving in town quite late in the day but not late enough for most restaurants to be open we did a quick trip advisor check and found this hidden little gem. It's not on the main road but tucked away. We were greeted and were the only customers, likely due to time of day. We were told of the specials, in English, and asked for advise on the menu. We ordered octopus salad and a meat board to start, followed by ravioli with wild hog, 3 meat grill and a pistachio pasta. Whilst we waited a plate of bruschetta was brought on the house. The octopus salad was the best I've ever had. It was served with lemon and grapefruit. Oh my it was heavenly. When our main courses came we surrounded with pure Sicilian food heaven in decent sized portions. The best Italian food I've ever had. Bravo!!

The typical sicilian food was excellent and the straff were extremely helpful and serviceminded. This is by far the best meal we have had in Siciliy.

This is a place for a good meal in Nicolosi - Italian and Sicilian stuff. The waiters are attending. The place has a bit of "formal" attitude perhaps being among the best and fanciest in Nicolosi. Ragu was good that is a sign of a very good Sicilian restaurant. They even offered some antipasti and dessert for free. Parking is possible just outside the place. I imagine, in the busiest season (mid-July - early September, you might need a reservation, at least on some evenings.
