We arrived a bit early for dinner but we received a super-friendly welcome and excellent sicilian food that was all home made, including the pasta and wine. Great choice for a quiet and delicious dinner

Perfect room for my week long house hunting and cycling stay. Clean with good Wifi and the evening meals were excellent and really good value for money. I don't speak Italian yet and the owners don't speak English too well but their son who was there does. Even when he wasn't there we managed to understand each other ok. All...

Call ahead if possible so they can plan your meal. We phoned in advance for lunch and were offered an antipasto plate of roasted artichokes, grilled peppers, homemade cheeses and sausages. The main course was homemade ricotta filled ravioli with boar ragu.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting Cavagrande (5 min drive away - beautiful streams and lakes at the bottom of a wide canyon, amazing wild swimming spot). The food was fantastic. We had antipasti to start, followed by large ricotta ravioli with rabbit ragu and a grill platter to share. You could tell that everything was home made from...

Best location we had in Sicily (out of six)! - Very relaxed atmosphere; in the middle of the cava grande reserve (where you can hike and swim in crystal clear water). It's very quiet, and there are amazing sunsets. If you want some entertainment Syracuse and Noto are at a good distance (resp. 45 and 30 minutes by car). -...

We stumbled on this establishment on our way to Cava Grande. 2 km or less from the gorgeous sight, this establishment is a wonder in itself that must be explored! The family that own and run the place are extremely lovely and welcoming - they shared their lunch with us - the most scrumptious fish you can imagine just caught...

After exhausting yourself with a trip down Cava Grande (more or less mandatory when visiting Sicily) I can think of no better place to recuperate. Rustic sicilian food cooked with a lot of love and served with a smile.

Scenic, winding drive up from the coast into hills with lovely homes and groves of tall, old pines, to this charming, modern B&B hosted by Antonio and Maria Malli assisted by two english-speaking sons. Antonio knows and offers many locally produced Nero D'Avola wines in the restaurant where his wife Maria prepares superb Sicilian cuisine from antipasto to dolce. Simple,...
