We found the service excellent at this restuarant and the food was good. There are not that many restaurants to have dinner in Castiglione di Sicilia

We were only in town briefly so dropped in for a quick lunch. The food is home cooked, typical of the region and delicious. We both had pasta and both were excellent. Service is friendly and efficient. English is spoken.

Absolutely the highlight of our 14 day vacation! Best meal we have ever had in any place in Italy. What makes this place so special is the family that runs it. They could have not been anymore welcoming. Such a great restaurant with amazing food!...More

Gorgeus. We had sets including antipasti, first, second course, dessert and wine. Everything delicious and we left full to bursting! One of two best meals we had in Sicilly!

Whilst this was the only restaurant we found open we were far from disappointed that we didn’t have a choice of places to eat. Inside and out door dining available. The team were friendly, welcoming and service very good. Selection of food was surprisingly plentiful,...More
