Found this on tripadvisor and was the perfect location for a lazy afternoon while sampling the local wines. The store owner at the enoteca had a good knowledge of the local wines with great recommendations and spoke great English. Recommend.

My sister and I spent a very enjoyable 3 hours sipping wine and sampling the salami and cheese board (which was ample enough to serve as dinner for the two of us). We asked Maria to select for us based on what kind of wine we liked, and her choices were perfect. Antonio took over from there and made more... More

We booked a table on their lovely balcony overlooking the sea (view is magical) & wanted to try some Sicilian wines. We were given 4 different wines to taste - 2 whites and 2 reds and different pestos and cheeses to go with each wine. We paid 15 euro per person which we thought was very reasonable! We spent around... More

Great choice of wine, delicious platers of local products, well informed service and the best is the small terrace for one of the best sundowners i ve ever had. Come early or make a reservation

We read about this enoteca in our guide to Cefalu and decided to give it a try. You need to reserve a table if you want to sit in the tiny terrace as there are only three tables. It is worth it! They recommended us different wines and the person in charge was very knowledgeable. The salamis and cheeses we... More

Visited this vineria by chance and l was so happy to be there. We arrive before sunset and sit outside to small patio. Can you imagine to drink soft wine, tasting delucious tapas and enjoy the sunset? Try it! Before you leave buy some bottles of the tapas. Take home to remember the taste of it.

Just returned from three days in amazing Cefalu. Our travel agent, La Rosa Works, recommended this special little enoteca for us. I'm reticent to write about it because it's so tiny and special, but it's simply the best for a glass of delicious Sicilian wine and a salami cheese plate. Try to reserve a table on the tiny terrace and... More

Normally it would take a lot for me to be so negative on a review and we didn't even get to eat or drink in the place but here goes.! Saw the good press for this place on tripadvisor so while passing it in the morning we called in and verbally booked a table for two for 1pm . When... More

Great place to spend a hour or two sipping wine and snacking on local cheeses and meats. The balcony view across the sea is breathtaking. Staff are very knowledgeable about local wines and make fantastic recommendations. Reservations are normally required around sunset to overlook the sea.
