Greeted by the owners' charming 8 year old daughter was a bit of a surprise, but after she showed us the way up to the courtyard, we were delighted.The food, setting and service were perfect. I had pasta and my wife had fish (our usual choices). The wines are mostly organic and of high quality. Although it's a little hard to find, it definitely is in the top 3 in Noto. Make a reservation, and enjoy your evening.

This lovely courtyard oasis is run by a family; two of the owner's sweet daughters help with the service. Good wines, authentic Sicilian dishes. This is not nouveau cuisine, it is pure local food with integrity. Sitting amid the latana we enjoyed a lovely meal here, our last one in Sicily and it will remain one of our most memorable. See you next time Mariacostanza! Millie Grazie.

We had just arrived in Noto and strolled down the street which our apartment is located on. We came upon this charming place and gave it a try. First of all the restaurant is beautiful and the staff are wonderful. But we were very impressed with the food which was carefully prepared and all delicious. The dishes are much more interesting than typical Italian offerings. We felt the prices are very fair considering the quality and the setting. Highly recommend.

Don't leave Noto without having a meal here. Although not as 'chichi' as a few of the other restaurants in town, this felt truly genuine and everything we ordered was stupendous. The chef is a woman with a touch of brilliance. The aubergine starter was the most flavorful and light I have ever eaten. The veal course was done to perfection and tasted so rich. The chefs husband was our host and was attentive without being too intrusive. The music mix was also delightful and he must be a musician himself as the hallway was lined with photos of musicians. Pleas make sure you eat here. The restaurant has been open since 2004. It is a bit difficult to find so look out for this sign on the street.

I have been eating here for years and it is always wonderful. This year I ate in the garden for the first time. Delightful.
