Our hotel (De Stefano Palace) had recommended this place, We did not have reservations, but the owner Maria was very accommodating pushing tables together for us (there were 12 of us). The food was simple but extremely tasteful - in fact of all the meals we had during our 2 1/2 week trip to Italy and Sicily this was the best and the best value. The owner does not speak English but she did her best to try to help explain the menu and selection.
We were so amazed by the quality and the service that we came back twice to her place. I would definitely recommend this charming, unpretentious place to anyone who visits Ragusa.
