Il Girasole is a wonderful, casual eatery that specialises in traditional Sicilian food with a home-cooked vibe. Our pasta dishes (ricotta ravioli with pork sauce, and sausage and mushroom pasta) were particularly outstanding. The prices were very reasonable also; two pasta dishes, two mains, a shared dessert, and a 500ml carafe of wine came to 42 euros. The place is filled with locals and has a warm, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

10minutes by walk from Corso UMberto, this trattoria is frequented by regulars. Waitress knew the customers. Place was fullup in 30minutes but tables are spaced out. Good value and menu

We loved this restaurant. It was packed with locals and the food was simple and rustic hit absolutely delicious, fresh and full of flavour. I ate the broad bean soup with lolli pasta which was wonderful and then had the lamb chops which flaked off the bone. My husband had the tagliatelle with wild fennel which was delicious followed by his dream meal, pork shank slow roasted (see the before and after pic). We finished with ricotta cannelloni and a refreshing lemon jelly and were offered a digestive drink which was fennel based and delicious. The waitress was busy and at first quite aloof but by the end of the meal she was more relaxed and friendly.

Found this place due tot trip advisor and programmed in the address in the GPS. Its out of the centre and feels like more of a locals restaurant.

The service was wonderful and we ordered the recommendations of our server (the daughter in the family who runs the place) and we weren't disappointed.

Casual atmosphere and home cooking with fresh ingredients. Really good value.
