A nice sala da pranzo, nice service and a charming chef that are the surroundings of solid good local food and a goot selection of Sicilian wines. The pizza is good, the pasta plates very good and antipasti and deserts great.

we arrived at about 21:40 and were pretty hungry. Although there were some free tables, we were made to wait for about 20 minutes. After seated it also took time for the waiter to take the order and bring at least water. But it's not their fault. In the big restaurant (about 20 tables) there were only 2 (!!!) waiters,... More

Went there twice. Once to have a real Italian dinner, and once just to get pizzas. For the primi I secondi piati, the food was okay , but a bit pricey. The pizza we had the second time around was amazing tho. Atmosphere is really nice , the staff is reasonably friendly - but that might also have been a... More

We ate here most nights as it was right next to our agritrisumo. I must say we were not disappointed! The place is relaxed and serves food in open air tables outside old baglio. When I peeked, there were no tables inside so I assume it only has out door service. The waiting team was helpful - there was a... More

Good restaurant! Nice food and good info on wine. We had our dinner outside on a nice terrace. Pizza's came out of real stone oven and were very tasty.

This was the worst restaurant I experienced in my week in Sicily. Almost 30 Italian families inside. They ordered only French fries as a primi and a pizza as a secondi and they only drank beer and coke. No problem with that choice. However, we ordered bruschetta which were actually too blackened and the bread was not flavored with garlic... More

We ate here every evening for one week and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the inventive menu using ingredients such as mint, basil and vanilla to flavour their exquisite fish dishes, and the quality of the food and wine. We tried most things on the menu and it was all excellent. The wine list is superb and... More

The first night we ate in Cantina Baroni was a little embarassing. Fresh off a flight from Finland, we turned up at what we thought was 7.30pm. The staff were eating dinner and the place was empty. Assuming we were the early European birds, we sat down and checked out the rather nice menu. Turned out, it was Finnish time... More

This place is a reliable food place we visit while in the area. We stop for few starters and a pizza on a Saturday night, we knew it may get full of people, and it was, but the entire staff was very attentive and service was fast. Good pizza and iced beer can make a good dinner while on holiday.... More

After five days trying trip advisor restaurants I despaired of having a fine dining experience in Avola. Right near our villa we found Veccia Cantina Baroni. We got there early 8pm and Sergio was able to give English translations to the menu and wine recommendations. He brought a wonderful selection of seafood and fish first plates for the 6 of... More
