I come here very often for my business lunches. The food is authentic Italian and they have a great Italian chef. The staff is friendly and the service fast. Their business lunch is very good value for money.

Wonderful meal including quick, great service and very friendly staff. Was quite interesting to gaze at chefs work at the open kitchen. If you are at Mövenpick Ibn Battuta Hotel it's worth to visit this restaurant

There we had amazing service, great food and Michael our waiter for the evening. Our pizza was tasty and crisp, the chianti went down a treat, simple... More

Description
Rustic and simple home-style Italian cooking with a Sicilian edge is what this unpretentious family restaurant with its wood fire oven offers you. Sicilia embraces a "Grotto" philosophy of "cook what is fresh today". Guests will be forgiven for thinking that the authentic cuisine coupled with a fine bottle of wine are imported straight from a sunny, countryside village home in Sicily.
