Very poor menu choices , and being on the coast ,not much to choose from except fish , the menu consists of 4or 5 courses which put on one plate would leave enough room for a large jacket potato,
Breakfast ,this had clothes full of very greasy bacon,sausages, and fried potatoes, in one corner local delights which consisted mainly of cake and biscuits paper cups for liquids and side plates for your meal I can only assume that 4stars in Italy has a different meaning.

We stayed in the Sheraton and decided to eat at the restaurant in our hotel.

There were some menu's and an a la carte.
We decided to go for a starter and main og our choice.
Starters I had pasta with a boar ragout that was not bad as my girlfriend had a pasta with saffron and basil and the only thing she got was pasta with an overload of grated cheese.

Main courses were just not as expected and can be called dissapointing.
I had veal on Catanian way and this was a small piece of meat with just some dry salad on a plate.
My girlfriend had Tuna that was cooked ok but served with cold marinated peaches that just dont fit with tuna...
We ordered dessert just because we were still too hungry.
Tarte with almonds and lavender was ok and I thought to play safe and take the ice cream of the day and got served some ice cream again with those marinated peaches and sun dried tomatoes...
At home we try all different kinds of "gourmet" restaurants but this aint close to what they serve.

Plus of the evening was service and the wine was excellent.

We had alot of expectations but came out dissapointed...

This restaurant is inside the Sheraton Hotel and although it's nice you get the feeling it could be so much better. We ate there on a night the hotel was meant to be full but there were only a few tables in the restaurant with people at them and it gave the impression the restaurant was a forgotten part of the hotel tucked upstairs out the way. To begin there only appeared to be one waiter serving who was very nice but the service was a little haphazard - emphasised by the fact that we were offered desert after finishing our first course. The food was nice enough but there is definitely room for improvement.

The restaurant is part of the Sheraton hotel and despite a rather limited menu everything we had there was top rate. We ate there 3 times during a 7 night stay !
Wine selection also good and reasonably priced

We stayed in Sheraton for 5 nights and decided to give an opportunity to their restaurant and were astonished how delicious it was, specially for items out of the menu, such as the Sicilian Caponata and the Penne a La Norma.
Give it a try, you won't regret it.
