Lovely people and the shop is a real gem. Food and wine are delicious. Very handy for us Northwestern Europeans to have our 6 o'clock "snack" at.

This place offers various typical Sicilian cheeses and salamis accompanied by very good quality wines especially the Nero d'Avola & Moscato. Worth visiting.

my gfriend picked this place. when i enter i was somehow sceptical because it looks like a cheese, meat and wine shop. but oooooh surprise we had a full degustation of local products with expert advices and explanation of the owner. lovely guy full of patience, talent and knowledge! perfect experience! the best was of course the wine out of the tank like at the gas station!

Made a little detour based on other Tripadvisor recommendations and are glad we did. Liked it so much we stopped in a second time.

Very helpful staff that appear to be a family. Worked with us to get through the language barrier and get us what we wanted. Offered free wine, cheese and bread samples and provided great wine recommendations. We ended up with a couple of nice bottles of local wine and some meat, cheese and food for a picnic.

They also sell a variety of local food products that make nice gifts. This type of stuff is available all over Sicily but their prices here were pretty good and the staff was very helpful.

While there we noticed a lot of locals stopping in to get sandwiches or fill up bulk wine jugs from some of their large wine vats.

Only recommendation would be posting hours on the metal doors. Hours are on the windows, but when they are closed you can't see them. They open at 6 AM and close around 2 PM, reopening at 4:30 PM

Neat place with good food and nice people. Make a quick detour and stop in.
