So it wasn't bad. But overlooking the menu there were, except for the porcini's no typical Sicilian dishes. With this in my mind I thought it wasn't worth the money we had to pay for it. And when advertising on roadplates as tipically Sicilian I can only suggest to try an other restaurant ( or go to this one if... More

We very much liked eating at this restaurant where we had lunch. The food was very tasty and not expensive (e.g. first course 5.00 - 9.00 euros).

While on a foray from our holiday base in eastern Sicily we called into Castiglione di Sicilia - a beautiful historic hilltop town with stunning views of Mount Etna and the surrounding countryside. It was lunchtime and we needed to eat. The welcome from the staff of the Ristorante Sine Tempore in Castiglione di Sicilia was warm and friendly. Set... More

We came here by recommendation of our hotel host and it is more than perfect. 10 days in sicily but it's the most exact time I feel I eat real sicilian food.

This was a nice quiet place tucked away in a hotel. Service was fine, if not overly friendly. I had a pasta with porcini, and my husband had a seafood dish. I would return there.

We stayed at the equally wonderful Hotel Frederico II located above the restaurant and simply went down the stairs for dinner three times! Great Sicilian mountain food, great pasta, meat dishes, being an unreformed carnivore did not consider vegetarian dishes. The service was impeccable, great food, wonderful wines. Castigleone is a wonderful hiil village located perfectly for Mount Etna adventures... More

We ordered two plates that we shared. (Eating reasonably while traveling is a challenge.) Very good service. Probably one of the better places to eat in town.
