I went with a friend to Le Chat Noir for a leisurely Sunday lunch. Despite its French name, the restaurant serves typical Sicilian staple accompanied with a good house wine. The service is very warm and friendly, as could be expected from a family-run restaurant in Sicily. I would recommend this place without any reservation.

Although a bit pricey for Italian / Sicilian standards, the food I had (parmigiana, linguine alle vongole) was really good. The pasta cooked al dente to perfection. Recommended.

Nice food and atmosphere. Menu's provide some local history to the typical food which is a nice touch. We enjoyed our meal but the restaurant doesn't really do anything different to any of the other surrounding restaurants.

Went for lunch and loved the pasta with anchovies and pistachios. Girlfriend enjoyed her antipasti siciliana. Friendly service too. The restaurant is really nice with a lovely patio inside. Would recommend it to anyone!

Very hungry after a day of hiking we went to this place that was just 50 metres from our B&B. Although it was October we thought it would be good to book it and that turned out to be a smart move because at 8 pm it was packed! Our starters were good and our main (oven-baked fish with tomatoes,... More

Seems to be a really popular place and we went there two nights in a row. The food and service was excellent. Depending on the time of year, you may need to book, as some people were turned away on the night. Seating is either on a narrow outside terrace or in fairly large inside space. A small point that...

We stopped in Cefalu en route to Palermo and came across this lovely little restaurant. We sat on the terrace out the front but the indoor courtyard also looked nice. I had the parmigiana and my partner had the meatballs. Both of us said, one of the nicest lunches we've had! Service was good and timely for our small lunch.

This place does not deserve to be in the top 10 in Cefalu. The food is tourist-oriented mediocre, badly presented, and the service is awful. I generally like the slow service in Italian restaurants but we waited over an hour for our entrees. Tables arrived, ate, and left while sat there. When we politely asked, the waitress checked, then came... More

This restaurant had been recommended by the local host of the apartment I was renting and also came highly recommended on Trip Advisor. I booked in advance to ensure I could get a table. Unfortunately the experience was disappointing. The service was exceedingly slow - I waited 40 minutes between my antipasto and my primo course, with no apology or... More
