At first we ran into small problems with some of the logistics of eating here. We made reservations (through a third party website) for 1130 brunch. We were really looking forward to it and showed up with a healthy appetite. Unfortunately for us they didn't even open until 1230 and no longer were offering brunch. So, needless to say my... More

Went there with friends for dinner we ordered vallespruga and after 10 mins the very unfriendly waiter told us that we had to order something else cause the oven wasn't on. The waiter never asked if we needed anything apart that he was very rude. Food wasn't something of a wow either. As for dessert it was stale and have... More

This was a lifeless experience - the waiter had zero personality or warmth, the food was mediocre, and overall it was a mediocre experience.

I hate giving poor reviews but I cannot hold back on this one. My wife and I ordered two "pizze autunnali" ("Noir" and "Salina"). I am Italian so I have a fairly good idea of what a pizza should be, and these were anything but: essentially two elongated slabs of cooked dough (which was of good quality in itself) covered...

A relaxed atmosphere in which to have a good plate of pasta with friends. Good selection of foreign beers and accommodating staff. Would return.

A lovely Sicilian brasserie, Blanc a Manger offers a range of delicious pastas, pizzas and meat options in between modern and traditional Sicilian cuisine. I had a marvelous pizza called Nero with unusual ingredients like grapes, walnut and balsamic vinegar. Not to be missed: the many different flavoured cheesecakes and the creme brule. Impeccable and friendly service!

On Santa Filomena food street, this place catched our eye mainly because of the beer list which my fried wanted to try. We ate autumnale pizza and buffalo mozzarella salad. Both were well done and delicious. Pizza was actually something that we wouldn't call pizza but the main thing is that it tasted well. :) Service was kinda slow as... More

Accidentally parked the car in the wrong place, and stumbled across this alleyway of great restaurants! We bickered for a while over where to go, as there's a superb choice along the road; some places has queues, others were suspiciously quiet, but we arrived at just the right time at Blanc a Manger and grabbed a table for two. We... More

Set down an alleyway full of restaurants this is an idyllic setting, this is how we imagined sicily! We both had steak, I had the 16oz and my wife the 10oz both were cooked to perfection, and a great choice of Belgium beer! A great experience!

A great little find. Very varied and interesting menu. They have set items on the list and seem to do a roaring trade in burgers. We choose a salad and pasta. Both were delicious and generous portions. Unfortunately we were departing Sicily on the day we visited, would have loved to return as they have an AMAZING selection of craft... More
