We had an absolutely lovely time at La Madia. The food is not for everyone,but if you love innovative,modern cuisine...GO! The cost is extremely reasonable 99E for about 5 courses. Lovely restaurant and perfect service. If we lived near, we would go again and again....More

Went for lunch to celebrate my birthday. Had the seafood tasting menu. All the courses were a highlight with plenty to eat which is unusual in a Michelin starred tasting menu. My wife thinks this is one of the best lunches we have had. Nice...More

We had an excellent dinner with a very friendly and professional service. They served additional several amuse bouche and friandise. Pino Cuttaia came twice to our table to ask if everything was alright which is a nice gesture. Our daughter just had a plate of...More

Beautiful food. Local produce: cheese, tomato, anchovy, artichoke, seafood, meat, magicked into a new state of being where they are more intensely themselves. Kind and thoughtful staff, even a handbag stand (I have never seen such a thing before!). Just a shame it was so...More

Chef Pino Cuttaia's passion is so obvious and present in every course he produces - no wonder La Madia is one of the best restaurant in Sicily. I have never seen a chef engage so much with his patrons, ensuring that each course is explained...More

It is not easy to reach even using Google. Probably it is the only jewel of the small city of Licata. But it is really fantastic ! The place is simple with comfort colors and light as every restaurant should be. The chef came to...More

In an unimpressive building, in an unimpressive city, some of the most impressive cooking we have experienced during the past ten years. Wait staff was a bit "snobby" at first, but probably because of some discomfort with English. Presentation is flawless, using the many fresh...More

Very special tastings, not for everyone. If you don´t know Italian, you´re up for some real surprises. Some of the food is hard to eat, if you are not from the South of Europe. It´s not a two star restaurant.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hello! Can anyone give me some insight as to the dress code for this restaurant? From the decor it seems more smart casual is appropriate while the fact that it is 2 Michelin star lends my assumption to more formal, e.g. sport coat or suit for a gentleman. Also, do people tip, at what percentage, when at this type of establishment? I'm hoping to go next week (though the reservation confirmation was in Italian so I have no idea if we actually have a reservation, and doesn't appear to be a specific time if we do!) thank you for any and all help!

Like so many other places, this restaurant has a very relaxed attitude to dress code. It really is about you dressing with what you are comfortable in. Given that the clients are generally well north of 21 years a sports... More
