This review is more for the experience than the food. It is like you were eating in someone's kitchen, which in fact is the case with friends and family popping in and out. And the home-cooked traditional fare while unexceptional, is good nevertheless and definitely...More

Owner served us reheated pasta, house wine that tasted like vinegar and added additional charges for items we did not order. Charged 7 euros for a few very thin slices of beef which should have been veal. We felt ripped off and sick half the...More

In a very small hidden alley we found this very little but very traditional sicilian restaurant. Pino and Maria are very friendly and they cook and serve simple traditional plates with delicious taste... Must visit and eat when at Enna!!

We have found it by chance. It was wonderful experience. Trippa was great. The owners know their job for over 50 years

My guidebook said that it was basic and a real throwback and they were right. House wine was cheap, but rough, but whilst the food was perfectly good and I'm glad I went for the experience, I wouldn't go back.

For an authentic dining experience in Enna, find your way into the grotto that is home to this tiny, two room, restaurant. As we descended, we found Guiseppe cleaning a large pile of greens on the main table. We had no idea where we were,...More

Filippo, who showed us round the castle of Enna, had recommended this trattoria but said it was inconvenient for access by car. Looking for somewhere else in our car, we found ourselves driving once more through Enna's one way system when my wife said 'Look,...More
