Very authentic local restaurant, typically Sicilian. Offering a varied menu, but at the time of our visit, very much into the porcini mushrooms. Despite the language barrier, extremely friendly and helpful staff. Substantial portions of excellent food. Highly recommended.

Extremely good waitering, smooth service, and excellent Sicilian food. You only hear Italian, read Italian, and see locals enjoy there meals. So no rubbish for tourists, one of the authentic places you want to spend your time in Sicily for a fair price.

A group tour lunch and all that entails but delivered with some panache and style . Mostly vegetable based and perfectly adequate to demonstrate the cuisine of the area . Have confidence.

we were on a tour but this restaurant was not the best one of the tour. It was okay. There was cold meats , pasta , rice and fruit and coffee. It would have been better if you knew how things were coming to the table as some things that should have been hot were cold .

What a lovely place! Good food and wine, pleasantly served in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. The only negative is the very steep downhill approach from the road. If you're unsteady on your pins, you might like to ask for a helping hand.

Thank Father-Brian

“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.
