“A great meal with plenty of typical Sicilian food”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 July 2018 via mobile

Visited La Porcheria whilst staying nearby on a balmy summer’s evening, midweek - we didn’t book, arriving at 8pm to join a few other Brits who like to eat earlier. It filled up after 8:30, but no-one was turned away. The dining area is in a open courtyard, perfect for the time of year. We left ourselves largely in the hands of the lovely owner, who suggested two antipasti, two Primi (pasta dishes) and three Secondi (main course), all shared between the five of us (two adults, one grown up and two teenage children). Highlights were the selection of antipasti and the mixed grill - the house speciality is Sicilian Black Pork, which was excellent in all forms. Only misstep was the carbonara, which was a little scrambled and made with bacon rather than guanciale (ask any Roman and they would insist, and this place worships the pig!). We saw others eating pizza that looked substantial and good. Washed down with good house red, mopped up with nice local bread. Good vfm €85.

Anyone that wants to experience a truly exceptional one of a kind italian/Spanish cuisine this is a must visit! Vinicio (the owner) is a true legend in Italy and he will make you feel right at home!

We visited this restaurant as it is rated #3 out of places to eat in Trecastagni on trip advisor. The staff seemed lovely however had very little English so it was hard to explain what we wanted, it was understood in the end as the owner worked very hard to understand us. The food wasn't the best and the atmosphere was poor, as we visited on Wednesday night. We were the only people in there and there was no ambience or music so there wasn't really an atmosphere at all. If you do choose to go here go for the pizza!
