We ate here on our last night and enjoyed every morsel of food that was served from the swordfish to the squid and the pasta dishes. You have to go early because by 8 PM it's mobbed.

Everything is in the title: the baroque city of Sicily and its caves: the location of La Grotta fits to the environment. The service profits from the international experience of the owners: full dedication to the client. Nice food at affordable price.

It is fun having dinner in a cave, we had the set menu al Terre, which was very good value - pasta particularly delicious.

Staff were brilliant and very attentive. The food was excellent and very reasonable. The restaurant itself is part of the mountain behind and very unusual. For this reason alone it's a must visit!
