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... More

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... More

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

Situated one road up from the main street and with a very nice atmosphere combined with old masonry and excellent food. The staff was very helpful and the setting was really nice and comfortable. Can only recommend to try it out as the quality you get for the price is to be beaten. Furher they are considerate with their selection... More

The restaurant is a few streets away from the crowded pedestrian corso, in a quiet part of Noto. Aditionally, it has a nice internal garden, which makes it a pleasant dinner experience. Thanks to the waiter speaking English, we have managed to get good recommendations, considering that there are specialties beside the menu as well. The food is carefully prepared... More

This may be the most elegant restaurant I've ever been in - elegant yet warm. I had a jaw problem when I was there so had trouble chewing -- and on top of that I'm vegan -- and they made a whole special meal for me that I could chew, and were so gracious about it. And the food....absolutely exquisite... More

It is always an elevated dining experience when the food is excellent, the setting feels real and authentic, the owners and staff are passionate about the food that they prepare and serve to you and yes there are locals eating there too. Do not worry if you can not read a Sicilian menu, the elegant staff is there to translate... More
