Delicious and intimate lunch at a beautiful olive oil farm. Francesco was a very gracious host and a wonderful chef. The olive oil was some of the best we’ve ever had. Definitely include this on your Sicilian itinerary! Tutto bene!!!!

This was the highlight of our trip to Sicily. Frank is the best of the best. He was an excellent host and became a fast friend. I’d love to go back just to visit and see the farm. Don’t miss this.

Coming to Amodeo's Farm, was like visiting family! Francesco welcomed us onto his Olive Oil fam with open arms and an open heart. He had set up a wonderful lunch with fresh pecorino and ricotta, and sausages cooked on the grill. Accompanied by a great bottle of wine. He made us so comfortably that we talked like we had known each other for years. We had a tour of the farm and the processing area. He shared his in depth knowledge of olives and the olive oil making process. Sharing historical and modern day methods of making olive oil. We had an olive oil tasting that taught us the correct way to taste it and what to look for in a good quality olive oil.

We finished the day with a tour of the old town of Montevago. He shared his passion for his family, the history of the town and how Amodeo's Farm came to be. Leaving Amodeo's Farm was like saying goodbye to family....you know you will see them again! Thank you Francesco!

This day is one my entire family will never forget. Francesco is very passionate about what he does. He is an excellent teacher and host. Everyone at Amodeo's was exceptional, friendly and warm. We had the most wonderful day learning about their methods of growing olives, the process of making olive oil and tips for purchasing authentic virging olive oil. We were treated to more delicious food and wine than you can possibly imagine. Incredibly accommodating. Can't say enough about this fantastic experience.

We were a group of 12 people came to Amodeo's farm on a sunny February day, Francesco was so nice to us. He first explained about the olive trees to us, then he had all that whole table of Sicily food for us. The fresh home made sandwiches, salad, cheese, spaghetti with that olive oil which we never had that before, everything was so delicious! Later he brought us out to the grove to demonstrate how to harvest the olive, then he brought us to his factory to see how the olive oil was made. At the end of the tour he even brought us to the old town to see the damage by the earthquake in 1968, before leaving the town, he bought us the sweets to have a happy ending visit ! Francesco is expert on the olive trees and olive oil, we learned a lot from the visit. We highly praise his farm and his passion for the olive oil, his way to welcome people to come. It was really a great day for us , it was truly a day of Sicily experience! Many thanks to Francesco and his friends !!!

I cannot even begin to explain my love for this experience.
Let me explain...

First, my wife and I are came to Sicily for our honeymoon. While we’ve seen and done a lot, nothing compares to the hospitality received from Frank and family.

We arrived and immediately felt right at home as Frank and his friend, Gina, had a local food spread for us to eat with a local wine drink to top it all off.
After the other couple on our tour arrived, we dug right into to this beautiful and amazingly delicious food sitting in front of us. All the while, Frank is conversing with us, telling us about himself and wanting to learn more about us before he started talking to us about his passion: olive oil. And man, was it worth listening to.

After finishing this gigantic, healthful and delicious lunch (which also made me a believer in not only olives, but tomatoes, as I typically don’t like either), we went out for a short walk to his family’s olive farm where he went on to explain all that goes into growing, harvesting and making the olive oil. He even let us operate some of the equipment for fun!

When this was over, we went back inside and did the olive oil tasting. We tried his oil and compared it to others and there is. It doubt its better, and I’m so mad at myself for not getting better olive oil. Needless to say, we bought a number of bottles to bring home with us.

When this was over, and we were offered coffee, tea, water, and some homemade limoncello from Frank and Gina, we went outside and cracked our own almonds to try because, well, why not right?!

We said goodbye to Gina and followed Frank for a quick tour of the old town of Montevego that was destroyed 50 years ago in back to back earthquakes, and then went for a tour of his families olive harvesting area also right down the road.

Lastly, when we couldn’t have asked for a better ending to our tour already, Frank then took us to a local bakery and treated us to cannolo and other treats.

It was a great experience that we enjoyed very much, not because of all the wonderful things we got to do and see and eat, but simply because of the hospitality we received and the feeling of friendship we received from the couple that were on the tour with us and Frank himself.

If there is anything you do the entire time you are here, do this. The memories you receive will be worth every bit of time and money you’d spend elsewhere while here in Sicily. I cannot even explain how appreciative we are and how much fun we had here.

Thanks again Frank!

My wife and I booked a tour of this olive oil producing farm. It has been the best thing we have done in Sicily! Francesco’s family has been on this land for many years. Francesco was so warm and friendly, we felt welcomed as if we were family too. We spent almost 5 hours there, finding out how to grow and harvest olives, turn the fruit into exceptional oil, and then try to sell, domestically and internationally. Fascinating! We ate a lovely (and seemingly never ending) lunch, all homemade from locally produced vegetables, meat, bread and fruit. We learned how to taste olive oil and how to discern excellent from good and good from inferior. This entire experience will shape all of our best memory of almost 3 weeks touring Sicily. Visiting Francesco’s olive oil farm is highly recommended. You will be missing something special if you do not do this .

I cannot explain to you how amazing this experience was. It is absolutely a must do even if you aren't into olive oil. Francesco and his crew are absolutely the nicest people abroad I have ever met. We had a large group of about 10 people and they were beyond accommodating. We actually got in touch with them and were able to spend the morning at the nearby Settesoli winery which is a massive production. Francesco accompanied us to the winery where we toured the entire facility and enjoyed a tasting after. After getting back from that tour our day had really just begun. We were greeted with wine, beer, spritzers, flavored water, and an absolute feast of antipasti. The food was all made there by Gina and her helper. We all took in the vibes and nearby thunderstorm (luckily we did not get any rain) while we ate and drank to our hearts content. At this time Giovanni started to serenade all of us with his singing and grilling of Italian sausage. A few of us were exhausted so we took power naps in their hammocks while Francesco brought out some snacks and of course more wine. We then gathered everyone and were taught about their process of gathering and mashing their olives into the most tasteful olive oil I have tasted. A full day experience that I would do again in a heartbeat. THIS IS A MUST DO!! Thank you everyone from Amodeo for making this trip such an amazing experience!

We arrived not knowing anything about olive trees or olive oil except what we knew from using commercial brands. Francesco and Giovanni and Gina brought us food , wine, olive oil, friendship and knowledge of the growing of olive trees and making of olive oil far beyond our expectations. If you are in the area you should consider spending a day at Amodeo’s. It is well worth the ride and the fee. The tour also includes transportation and guides for reviewing ruins from an earthquake in 1968 that devastated the area. Also, Francesco treats his tour to a fabulous tasting of pastry and gelato/ice cream in the town. Do not be afraid to try the olive oil ice cream!!! Amazing tour and property!!!
