Staff were brilliant and very attentive. The food was excellent and very reasonable. The restaurant itself is part of the mountain behind and very unusual. For this reason alone it's a must visit!

We had a good lunch in this restaurant. Unfortunately they served no pizzas during lunch. But the plates are really tasty. It was raining so being inside in de grotta was a blessing.

In the past people have been living in the rocks in the lovely Sicilian city of Scicli. La Grotta is situated in a cave in the rocks. When you enter the restaurant it's much more charming than it might sound. It's a cozy place with just one or 2 people in the kitchen, 1 or 2 in the restaurant. The... More

We tried this restaurant after it was recommended by our apartment owner - and weren't disappointed by the superb meal we ate. Built into the cliffside and with its cave dining room, La Grotta looks amazing and provides food and service to match. Each dish was a traditional Italian classic, with a slight twist supplied by the chef. Both the... More

Charming place eked out of a real cave with little nooks and crannies. Small, not many tables. Looks family run. It was just a very nice dinner, nicely served in an original and friendly ambience with excellent food and wine at a reasonable cost. Scicli by night is lovely and so was this place.

The setting is amazing, ancient rooms carved into the rock and then fantastically decorated. The meal was excellent and the staff really efficient and friendly.

A bit hard to find but well worth the effort. In a cave in the hillside it may not look too flash but they concentrate on what matters the food and service. Lower mark up on wine so maybe a chance to try a more prestigeus bottle. We only found afterwards that 52 euros for the Donnafugata Mille & Una... More
