We choose Il Cantuccio for our final mean in Sicily and wow... what a treat! The food was easily the best we had. The attention to detail with the flavours and the use of high quality ingredients was fabulous. Thoroughly recommended!

Everything about this place was outstanding. Highly professional, laid back approach to the high quality food and wines belies the whole experience. If you want to experience the best of Sicilian cuisine you HAVE to visit Lucca @ Cantuccio.
