This is an amazing family run restaurant. I have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. The owners are warm, friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and always beautifully presented. The wine list is amazing.

Five course, so beautifully presented, perfect... More

Truly this was an excellent experience from the minute we arrived until the end of the second time we at there two days' later. Not being too hungry and reading that only tasting menus were on offer the chef and owner cheerily told us no problem and made our own smaller degustation menu. The food is worthy of at least...

Food wonderful, bit of a combination of Italian and French - not surprising as Damiano used to work at Le Gavroche and the Dorchester. Wouldn't really recommend for young children though. The granita for dessert was divine - not easy to find good granita in Western Sicily. Strange to find such a gem in a town off the beaten track.

We found the restaurant late in our trip but still managed to sample the tasting menu twice. From the outside the building does not look anything special but once over the doorstop the transformation begins. Once inside we received a very warm and personal welcome from the Chef Damiano and his wife Adriana in the fantastic reception room with glass... More

After a very long ride from our hotel in Palermo, in our bus via The Turkish Steps at Realmonte, we arrived. I have to warn you the town is nothing special. There is a sign pointing the way, up and around a narrow lane to our dining destination. Standing out with its bold facade and very quaint entrance the Capitolo... More

Our hotel, Verdura, recommended this restaurant which is part of a B&B in Montallegro. It is run by a husband and wife team who are great hosts and welcome you into their home. We chose the tasting menu which was fantastic and all fish based. Unlike in the UK where tasting menu portions are small, these were generous and we... More

My forth dinner with some visiting friends at Capitolo Primo will not pass without writing an enthusiastic Tripadvisor review that Chef Damiano and is wife Adriana fully deserve. Adriana welcomed us with her spontaneous and warm kindness which makes you feel immediately at home. As in past occasions, we trusted entirely the surprise menu proposed by the Chef, and once...

We came across this restaurant while touring the temples in the Agrigento Region of Sicily. It was a truly enjoyable experience. We chose the tasting menu, everything was quite good. With some inventive dishes. Service was good. Really a pleasant surprise!
