Had lunch there on a Sunday and we were surrounded by local people which is always a good sign! Go there for the mushrooms! They are amazing! The veal and the pasta were amazing as well. Very good and cheap local wine: 1€ a glass! Don't go there if you're not really hungry because the portions are huge! And on... More

Lunch was simply delicious. Of xourse menu is more meat/inland biased. Can recommend everything with local porcini mushrooms and local sausage. The place is simple but has an incredibly value for price. I don't rate it 5/5 because of long wait to get a table and extremely slow service. If you go during weekends you better book. I'd go again... More

The food we ordered was simple but very tasty. The prices were much better than some of the other places we looked at. Good service.

Had lunch here at the end of August 2016. Lovely, simple food. Highly recommended. Mozzarella di Bufala was delicious, caponata - not too sweet and yummy, wonderful salad with sweet red onion.... Perfect. Complimenti tutti.

We stopped by to eat something in the evening. This is purely locals place. Not very cosy but it's not the place for that. We had very good food and good fun. Nice staff.

The Caponata (a traditional eggplant appetizer) was one of the best I ever had. The pasta dishes were also nicely crafted and generous.

Do your stomach a favour - don't go to Bar del Bosco. This was definitely by far the worst pizza of my life. On top of that you need to speak Italian because the english menu is not available and the waiter does not speak english either.

For the quality/price aspect this was the best place we ate during our stay (10 days) in Sicily. We went twice (the third night they were closed!) and really enjoyed the wonderful home cooking,the good service, the nice local wine. The speciality here is funghi, and even in the Spring when they have been frozen, they are delious as primi... More

The waiters take their life in their hands to bring your food across the zebra crossing. If you eat indoors, it is like stepping back in time and reminds me of seaside towns in the 70s. The big terrace is only equalled by the huge pizzas. (I'd recommend having a starter each and sharing a pizza). There's something very reassuring... More
