This restaurant faces the steps to the St Francisco church. You can just sit there and enjoy people watching, the families sitting on the steps and the atmosphere of Noto in the golden light. The food was good too, a good choice and well presented....More

Absolutely wonderful view on the “Piazza Immacolata”. We really enjoyed the antipasti with grilled vegetables and cheese. The pasta alla Norma was great. We appreciated how considerate the waiters were, even though the place was crowded.

Me and my friends ordered lasagna and the meal came cold like it was made days before! Then we asked to warm it, they did it, but did not even said “sorry”.

With so many good restaurants to choose from, there is really no reason to come here. We were told the waiting time was 20 minutes, it was 60. Fine. The food is disappointing, lasagna way too salty, risotto so uninteresting... Just go someplace else.
