Five of us enjoyed perfectly cooked and presented modern Mediterranean food here. It was a simple setting in a courtyard, and we especially appreciated the lack of stuffiness in combination with excellent food. Everything was delicious, the waitress was friendly and helpful, and Bye Bye...More

The menu is promising at this contemporary fusion (Italian/American I take it) style restaurant. As starters, we had one antipasti, caponata, and one primi, ricotta and sage ravioli served with slices of smoked duck, and they were both truly great. High quality ingredients combined with...More

We were staying in the hotel, Quintocanto so ate here one night because we couldn't be bothered looking for somewhere else. Glad we did because we agree that it is one of the best meals we've ever eaten. Surprised when the red wine was chilled...More

The restaurant is tucked away in a little portico, but well worth a visit. The cuisine is sicilian but with a modern twist and the service is very friendly. Open on Sundays after high season has ended which is great as some of the other...More

“Officina del Gusto” is for its patron Antonio Barraco a dream that comes true after many years, it is the physical and symbolic return in the beautiful historical heart of his beloved city, it is his “made-up time”, it is the materialization of a concept woven with beauty, local cuisine, and good taste.
