We've been trying to decide if we caught this place on an off night or what? Multiple recommendations, many awards, rustic decor, but the degustation menu was unappealing. The waiter was nice but did not have recommendations regarding the wine. One course was mushrooms w melted cheese and lacked flavor. We were offered salt and pepper with the soup and... More

The 32 € menu was very good, but was too much to eat. The restaurant was just off main piazza. Very antique interior with good service. Delivered to the door by electric shuttle.

Love this cute little restaurant but the service is slow and the food needed a bit more. The great things were the fresh wild pig meat, the wine is exceptional (but it is good everywhere in Sicily), the decor is great, the town it's in is SO cute, but i wasn't blown away with how the mushrooms were cooked and...

A highlight of our trip, and one of the great food experiences in Sicily. Superb 5-course tasting menu and excellent a-la-carte menu. Surprisingly low-key and unpretentious, London restaurants could learn a trick or two about service and ambience from this excellent restaurant. Book in advance.

Just returned from Sicily and my party visited Nangalarunni while visiting Cefalu. Castelbuono is a beautiful little hamlet and definitely worth the 20-30 minute taxi ride from Cefalu. Our travel agent, Larosa Works, suggested we dine at Nangalarunni - and what a fabulous call! We (a party of 4) all LOVED this restaurant. Tiny and unassuming, the restaurant has an... More

We spent four nights in the beautiful town of Castelbuono and ended up having dinner at Nangalarruni three times. We only wish it had been four! Our meals were perfection; easily the best restaurant we ate at in our 3-1/2 weeks in Sicily and Rome. Two meals, the pork roast and the pasta with mushrooms, were among the best meals... More

Best meal we had in Sicily. Everything was tasty from the wild boar in pistachio and almond to the amazing mushrooms. There house wine by the glass is very smooth. Warm inviting atmosphere and good service.

Enjoyed a pleasant meal at an outdoor table on the street in Castelbuono outside Nangalaruni . Quality of the food was excellent ....especially the spaghetti with truffles and the pistachio wild pig . Service was efficient but perhaps a bit rushed and not overly friendly.
