My husband and I and another couple just had a great dinner at Giancarlo Barone. The food was terrific, the fish was fresh, and the service could not have been better. We sat at the window with a great view of the Norman castle across...the street. My friend left her scarf behind and the owner had his brother bring it by motorcycle to our hotel a mile down the road. I have never seen service like this. Amazing!!More

Group of twenty, quickly welcomed, seated, and served. Delicious wine, appetizers, salads, first and second courses it was better than being at an endless seafood buffet. Then as all good sicilian restaurants there was the dessert. Magnificent!! Staff did an incredible job. Thank you to...one and all. Bon appétit.More

So many options to choose from and you can tell from the atmosphere just how tasty all the food is. Our waiter was very accommodating and helpful when I asked about Gluten Free options. He even said that he would double check that the chef...knew I couldn't have gluten as well. As a party of four we all had starters and mains which all looked and tasted amazing.More
