The couple who run this restaurant are super friendly and welcoming, this was the second time I visited this restaurant, during which 4 weeks had passed. He remembered me and welcomed me back so warmly-when you travel and eat out in many different restaurants, being made especially welcome was like visiting some friends for dinner!
The wife is the lady in the kitchen and she doesn’t disappoint, one is regularly surprised at little small snacks that appear between courses and the food is just great Italian (Sicilian) cooking. The husband is front of house and he is so warm and friendly, often bringing his wife out to speak to guests.
The restaurant is a little off the main streets so you might have to look it up on the map, alternatively the husband will come and pick you up in his little car- such great service!
I will definitely be back!

Recommended by the excellent OC Villa Adriana Hotel, we ate at this restaurant on the quietest of evenings. But the food was great and the staff were charming and so willing to please. If you are in this area I would recommend this restaurant to you. The Sicilian Cassata is delicious!

The food, atmosphere and service were outstanding at this charming restaurant. We loved every course... and there were so many! And, the dessert was the best I have ever eaten, including Rome, Venice, Siena, Florence... We highly recommend it for anyone -- local or traveler.

We came across Restorante Bonadea by accident, looking for somewhere to escape the rain on our way to catch the Bus from Villa Adriana. What a lovely surprise it was; after 5 days in Rome we enjoyed the best quality food and the most friendly service.
