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.

We discovered il Cantuccio walking along the back street behind Noto basilica,where there are a few restaurants which always seemed busy. We weren't disappointed. Gorgeous setting (fairy lit courtyard set off w cobbled alley,with kitchen garden,) well spaced tables,genial hosts and divine food with the best tuna i have had anywhere. Don't miss it if in Noto!

We enjoyed this restaurant 8 years ago and were delighted to track it down and to find it as friendly and good as we remembered.

When in doubt follow the staff's suggestions on food and especially local wines. On a night evening sit outside in the garden courtyard.

We really enjoyed this charming restaurant in Noto - six of us had lovely wines and excellent dinners here. I would highly recommend the cheese tasting course as a starter - they offered small tasting portions with accompaniments such as honey and local jams, and it was a great way to kick off the evening. The pastas were wonderful- simple and flavorful, with just the right emphasis on local ingredients and flavors. We had the absolute best cannoli for dessert - light and fluffy. Some of the restaurants on our trip seemed a bit too fussy, but this one was just delicious.

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.
