We ran across this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to dine there. The location is outside of town but the drive was completely worth it! The service was amazing- great recommendations, very efficient and kind. They did not have an English menu but the staff explained and translated for us. We ordered a starters plate (which was mind blowing), eggplant... More

A great find. All the reviews were spot on. This was a great dinner at a reasonable price. We did all four courses, antipasti, pasta, meat, and dessert plus two bottles of wine. Nice setting for a relaxing evening with good food.

Accessible only by car, but well worth the trip. Great starters and great restaurant for all kinds of meat. Pasta is fab too.

I decided just the way before to have lunch in this restaurant. Good choice indeed , the bbq was amazing and the cakes too . A bit slow the service but I cannot complain since everything else was just perfect.

Searching in the dark along a twisting, unlit road and across a railway track it felt as though this restaurant did not want to be found, but we finally discovered it (only 20 minutes late) and it was well worth the effort. A roaring wood fire awaited, and the small dining room was packed despite the remoteness of the place.... More

The restaurant is down in the valley near Ragusa station, so a steep walk of roughly one mile from the duomo piazza, best not attempted in the dark, but a pleasant enough walk during daylight. Lovely sun terrace at lunchtime. Plenty of places to park if you drive there. The food is simply brilliant, an unusual menu beautifully cooked and... More

Just great to be here after a long drive to and from Modina. It was difficult to find in the dark. But it was worth the trip. Excellent food, pastas and to my surprise the was no fish on the menu. Maybe that's why it's so popular. It was fully booked, but still served on time. A wonderful place to... More

Whilst restaurant was recommended to us we only visited in on our last night in Sicily. What a pity as not only was the setting beautiful but the food,atmosphere & the attendants were 1st class. We weren't sure what we wanted but they were able to make us a fantastic meal & we sat over food and drinks for hours... More

The restaurant is located near the old station of Ragusa. Not in the old town but it is worth it. I think there are lots of local families eating here, big families and couples. The service is friendly but only Italian speaking staff except the cashier. Menu card only in Italian. Unfortunately they have no fish. Prices are according to... More
