Our guide for the day to the filming locations for the Godfather Movie took us to this bar late in the day as the proprietress was locking the door and darkness was setting in. She was so kind, and re-opened for us to enjoy a lemon sorbet, and cookie, and take a few photos of the interior. The front of... More

This is a really pretty little bar, decked out in its original features (there is a well inside) along with the bits its most famous for which is the part it plays in the classic film, The Godfather. There are lots of pictures around the walls from the film and typical music - its really very inviting. Outside the front... More

My wife and I live in Israel and we were on a week-long organized tour of Sicily. Although we are avid nature lovers and mountain hikers, before we came we really knew nothing about nature in Sicily except for Mount Etna. We were shocked to discover that Sicily is a virtual nature paradise. Our tour guide took us to the... More

While this is a fun place to visit for Godfather fans, it desperately needs a new owner/manager. The dude was simply inhospitable, perhaps he's tiring from seeing all of us fun-loving Americans climb those windy roads to come buy a drink and lunch at his bar. But as everyone has said, it hasn't changed much since the 1971 movie, and... More

A must if you are a Godfather fan. See where Michael Corleone asked for a date of Apalonia from her father. Sit in the same spot. Eat the food too... delicious.

Great food. Busy restaurant and staff can be abrupt but over all great. Wines are great. We will definitely visit again.

This is a touristy place, because of it's involvement in the filming of the 'Godfather'' 50 years ago. However, it has retained its charm as a bar & restaurant, despite all the passing tourists. I was here at a wedding reception, and the food was great: not to mention the drinks. Stay a while in Savoca and you'll get a... More

If you are in Sicily and have seen and enjoyed the Godfather movie then this is a must. Great photos inside of the cast/crew at work on the movie. It was raining when we visited so eating outside wasn't an option (so we ate across the street).

We stopped at Bar Vitelli today in Savoca and it was surprisingly quiet when we arrived, we decided to drop in to have some lunch, the coffee @ €2 was probably one of the best we have had so far in Sicily and had the Tuna salad with bread which was delicious @ €14 - so considering it's a bit...
