Plain (in a good way, as opposed to overstuffed), large, spacious rooms and apartment on the third floor of a townhouse with spectacular views over town. It's right next to the famous ceramic steps in the middle of town, with many restaurants at your fingertips.Very pleasant, involved landlady who makes your breakfast her personal cause. Very reasonably priced.

Near tourist sites, good restaurants and ceramics stores. Very clean, very comfortable, great value, and Rosa was there to make us feel ritht at home.

Rosa was a welcoming host and the room was spacious and offered outstanding views of the central city. The location was central with free parking near by. Rosa also offered a quality breakfast which included homemade pastries.

Piccolo Attico is a wonderful bed and breakfast in the heart of old town Caltagirone. Rosa Maria, the host is very welcoming and helpful.

I can thoroughly recommend this B&B. We arrived tired and worn out after a long drive but left happy and refreshed. Spotless rooms and ours had a view of Etna. Rosa's breakfast was one of the best in Sicily. We had breakfast with two other couples and what we lacked in Italian we were able to make up in French.... More

If you go to Sicily you must go to Caltagirone, and when you go to Caltagirone you must stay at the Piccolo Attico. My wife and I spent 4 nights here. Excellent rooms. Clean and very well appointed.

Piccolo Attico naprawde bylo najlepszym B&B w jakim zatrzymalismy sie w podrozy po Sycylii. Nasz pokoj byl duzy, bardzo wygodny, sterylnie czysty, urzadzony ze smakiem- co sie czesto nie zdarza, zaskoczyly mnie na scianach 2 swietne sitodruki zamiast wstretnych reprodukcji kwiatkow, ktore wlasciciele B&B kupuja chyba na wage.

We stayed at this hotel for just one night and enjoyed it very much. The place itself is basic enough, but clean and comfortable and around the corner from the famous staircase.
