A family-run trattoria which offers a stunning variety of palatable regional Sicilian dishes with seasonal choices. The highlight of my lunch was a pasta with fava beans velouté and red shrimps.

The mixed fish antipasti is almost a complete meal but a lovely balance of fish, prawns, mussels and fried dishes. Pasta dishes also extremely tasty and more than enough. The Bianco de Nera was a very pleasant surprise (lightly sparkling) and offset the food wonderfully....More

This restaurant is tucked away in a quiet piazza not far from the center of Caltagirone. Excellent quality seafood dishes, a wide variety of Sicilian wines, and creatively prepared grilled vegetables. Customers mostly local families. Staff and service were great, prices reasonable. Highly recommend.

If you want great Sicilian food and wonderful service, go here. The lovely Samantha served us and recommended what we would order. She did an amazing job and we had an incredible meal. We waddled out at the end, full and very happy!
