We visited here on our first night in Sicily, and so glad we did. There is a set menu, that is just automatically served, so if you're a fussy eater then definitely not for you! We had a course of 3 different plates of antipasti. Things like caponata, melanzane parmeziana, spinach fritters, fried mushrooms, cooked peppers. Then came a plate... More

Only reason I give 4 and not 5 stars is that I rarely give 5 stars, and only to restaurants that have more sofisticated offer, where food is not the only criteria. But this place in all other aspects is a must. This is a local, family run restaurant, authentic to the point that nobody speaks any other language but... More

This is a quirky place in many ways! Staff- a family, are absolutely charming and very attentive! In fact we have not come across any who are more 'on the ball'! The set menu is very tasty, local, and uncomplicated, quantities are enormous and customers are well advised to be cautious before attempting to finish the first course! Frequented by... More

We enjoyed a great evening. There is no menu. You get antipasto of the house which are excellent. We enjoyed 7 or 8 different dishes. After this two lovely pastas and we could have enjoyed meat and fish but skipped and had the dessert. Good house wine to so all in all a great evening for a decent price.

MAKE SURE YOU STARVE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR VISIT!!! You need GPS to find this place as it appears to be at the back end of an industrial area. The welcome was fabulous, even though booking probably was best they still fitted us in. There is no menu with a fixed price of EUR25 per head. The whole meal is packed... More

To start with you definitely need a GPS to find the place. Also recommended to make reservations! We do understand the popularity of the place though since the food is very fresh, home made and simply delicious. Be sure that you have a big appetite since for 25€ the plates just keep on coming. 12 appetisers, 2 pasta dishes, 2... More

Hard to add much to other reviews .The best anti pasti and pasta Norma we had in Sicily.great tiramisu with a bowl of wonderful fresh cherries and strawberries. Not easy to find but Google maps got us there despite my husband's dubious comments "it can't possibly be up this lane"

This was my 4th visit and I thought it's time to share this Sicilian treasurer. This is not a conventional walk-in dinner but rather a private dinning club for special events, like birthday parties etc. So no Menu! Food is truly Sicilian and host (wife, husband & team) extremely friendly. So, if you have not booked but are in the... More

We found this more or less by accident, we had no reservation and a big private family party of the owners was just about to start. Regardless, they welcomed us in and we ended up amongst the family party with our table filled with countless dishes of home style Italian food. Also incredible value for money. We spent a great...
