An Unexpected Pleasure
Aug 2021
What an unexpected pleasure to go to Gli Aromi, to learn about the farm, the herbs, to taste the delicious treats made by Rita and to hear endless wonderful stories about how the farm came to be by Enrico, who has real passion for what he does. Be prepared for your nose to be in heaven. This experience is not the first thing that would come to your mind when you think of a trip to Sicily, but I highly recommend it for anyone who loves food, farming/gardening, and great company!

Welcome and inspiring beauty in Scicli
Jul 2021
This was an experience all of its own! It was one of our favorite locations on our visit to the Ragusa area. The view itself is worth winding up the roads for - the sunset, the Mediterranean. But the sense of life given by the green herbs and flowers, the enthusiasm and vision of Enrico, and the mouthwatering food prepared by Rita (that involtini though!) made the experience extraordinary. Enrico was so gracious and welcoming that it seemed he had been waiting eagerly for weeks for our arrival. When we left the jams (flavored with herbs from the gardens) we intended to take and enjoy at home, he personally made sure they were delivered to the hotel. We were privileged to enjoy this little gem tucked up near Scicli - from the warm welcome and hearty singing to the ephemeral beauty of the caper flower

Enthusiastic
Oct 2020 • Couples
Just to meet one of the owners-Enrico and see his enthusiasm is a good reason to come here. We were just two persons and still he took time to give us an introduction to Gli Aromi. The time of the year was maybe not the best for a visit but the highlight was the unbelievable parfume of the passion fruit flower.

beautiful experience
Jul 2020
This place is one of a kind! As you arrive you see those greenhouses and you think... hmm this place looks interesting. As you enter, you remain with your mouth wide open! It's so unusual, beautiful, smells so good, it feels like you have entered another dimension. It does not feel real. The place itself is stunning but the owner and his lovely wife really make you feel at home. They are super nice people, he is super funny as well. They treat you as you are a life long friend visiting them at home. First, we had a tour around the greenhouses and the field behind them. Countless species of herbs and plants. All different, with beautiful odors and colorful flowers. Mr. Enrico very knowledgable and super passionate about his project. It was a pleasure listening to him, even that I personally had no love for plants before. Now I want to fill my balcony with herbs :) At the end there was a light dinner made by his wife, using all the herbs they grow. It was delicious. The tour, the dinner, them! All of it. It's a perfect final to a day in Scicli/Modica. LOved every minute of it!

Great experience to learn about herbs
Jan 2020
We were fortunate to be able to visit as Enrico was leaving the following day for the USA. He is quite knowledgeable about herbs and Sicily. We were a party of 6 and everyone enjoyed our time with him. We wished we could have spent more time as there was so much to learn. Highly recommended.

This is an amazing location on the coast of Sicily. Enrico is growing amazing herbs and has big plans for the property. They also have a new amphitheater for events and music. His wife is an excellent chef and past restaurant owner.
A great and friendly place to visit.
They also have resuce dogs and are part of a program to care for local abandoned dogs.

A SPECIAL TREAT
Oct 2019
I recently returned from Sicily. Visiting this herb farm was a highlight, especially with Enrico as truly entertaining and knowledgeable as he is and Rita as delightful a person and excellent cook as she is. The farm is a work in progress, one which they have great plans to keep expanding, on its way to becoming a destination place to stay, while enjoying the view and the aromatic herbs. Well worth visiting. Grazie, Enrico and Rita

A Very Enjoyable Evening.
Oct 2019
Enrico and Rita Russino provided us with an unexpected fun evening. You would think that visiting an herb farm would consist of a boring set of lectures about plants and then a tasteless dinner. How wrong we were. Enrico could be on the stage. His enthusiasm for his work and his quick one liners made the herb tour an entertaining event. Rita, born in Brooklyn very near to where I lived my childhood, is a fantastic chef and the dinner was absolutely delicious. The main course was cooked outside on a very unique grill and produced some of the best chicken wings ever. Every part of the meal was fresh and unique. Even the herbal tea we started with was great. We also bought some homemade jams that Rita is trying to market, were unique and interesting and we bought some to give as gifts. This is a very unique place to visit. To make it even better are Enrico and Rita. Don't miss!!

The Enrico Caruso of Herbs
Oct 2019
There were eight of us who booked this experience: tour of the fabulous herbs gardens of Enrico Russino, followed by dinner outdoors cooked by his amazing Brooklyn-born wife-Chef, Rita. The gardens feature every conceivable variety of cooking and flavoring herbs, all with spectacular views. Dinner consisted of freshly cooked vegetables, including a unique flavorful appetizer from sage leaves and local wine, red and white, together with good olive oil & house bread. Sunset was divine. But the biggest attraction was Enrico himself: my other name for him is P.T.Barnum. He is a born entertainer with big plans and even bigger dreams. This was a lovely and unforgettable evening, it made up for my annoyance with the dullness of Scicli.
