A restaurant away from everything. You will think that the gps has got you to wrong place. We’ve experienced a great Sicilian meal. No menus, no fuss and be ready to eat. The antipasti consist of 10 different items, mostly vegetarian. We were already full...More

Although the review comes 6 months after our visit to Trattoria Ardichetto, I never forgot this place. It was by far the best culinary experience we had during our visit in Sicily. It literally felt like having a dinner prepared by my mother back home....More

This is a quirky place in many ways! Staff- a family, are absolutely charming and very attentive! In fact we have not come across any who are more 'on the ball'! The set menu is very tasty, local, and uncomplicated, quantities are enormous and customers...More

We enjoyed a great evening. There is no menu. You get antipasto of the house which are excellent. We enjoyed 7 or 8 different dishes. After this two lovely pastas and we could have enjoyed meat and fish but skipped and had the dessert. Good...More

MAKE SURE YOU STARVE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR VISIT!!! You need GPS to find this place as it appears to be at the back end of an industrial area. The welcome was fabulous, even though booking probably was best they still fitted us in. There is...More

To start with you definitely need a GPS to find the place. Also recommended to make reservations! We do understand the popularity of the place though since the food is very fresh, home made and simply delicious. Be sure that you have a big appetite...More
