On Sundays, if you are a big group, make sure you have time to wait for your food. 1 h from sitting down to getting our meal. A pity for a fantastic location with such great kitchen.

Worth a visit if you are staying in or near Savoca. The host was very friendly and spoke English well. He suggested a ravioli which was not on the menu and it was delicious. Hopefully more people will find their way to this restaurant.

If you are doing the Godfather tour in Savoca don't stay in the restaurants in town go down the road to Gelsonero, it was the best food we have had in Sicily, it really was the best service and the food was amazing.

Recommended by a local B&B, the drive up the mountain was highly worth it. It's a lovely family run business, selling top quality traditional Sicilian dishes.

Spontaneously we’ve decided to visit Savoca in the evening. The town is very nice and not too many people were there at 7pm. On the way back we’ve decided to have dinner at Gelsonero and what a gem! The best fish in Sicily! The service...More
