The best meal we had in Sicily, the owner/manager looked after us personally (because he spoke English) and made sure we got what we wanted, lovely food, great service and friendly staff

I must say we had pizza at least 7 times in 14 days in Sicily and this place was the best we ate. I was disappointed that we had a large group, so the pizza choices were pre-arranged and it was a share arrangement, but...More

Definitely a restaurant to recommend ... try the fabulous assortment of Sicilian style antipasti and possibly also try some pizza ... meat lovers also have a good choice of fillets cooked to perfection...

“OLD BARRELS”: a place where the tradition of yesterday becomes tribute and sophistication in the present.The restaurant has a warm and relaxing atmosphere in which the dishes of our land are proposed and interpreted with ever new creativity although maintaining their original uniqueness.Our project aims to convey the flavor of traditional Sicilian cuisine, the wines of Etna and our gastronomic culture which includes a wide choice of pizza (leavened and baked slowly into the wood oven).You will be welcomed in a relaxing environment and you will be pampered by our staff, in a landscape unique, situated on the slopes of Etna, and able to offer you glimpses of extraordinary beauty, where time seems to stand still.The large green open spaces surrounded by orange trees, a large indoor restaurant and the lounge pizzeria from which you can admire the restored ancient winery that has preserved the original structure of the "Old Barrels", once used for the production of wine and finally a small rustic room of 20 seats, ideal for candlelight dinners and / or business lunches or dinners, are just waiting to welcome you with the typical warmth of Sicilians and their homeland.
