Good food is not difficult to find in Sicily. Yet the quality of the food at this Trattoria is superior to most eateries. I particularly liked the starters, and the home-made tagliatelle with wild fennel is simply out of this world.

Still "undiscovered", without the crowds of the i sapori perduti, behind the santa maria delle grazie churh. Slightly better than the i saporti perduti. Very traditional food, very high quality, the typical slow food trattoria. Only local ingredients. The owners are very nice. They do not speak English, but this is not a problem. Choice is very limited, but overall it is a great experience. Do not miss the lolli con le fave and in spring anything with wild asparagus. My favourite in town.

We went to this restaurant and we were told to come back in an hour since we were too early. We found something to do for an hour and when we returned to the restaurant, we were told that in the meantime, the reataurant became totally booked and that there was no longer any place for us.

So we did not get to eat here. It looked like the food would have been traditional, which is why we chose it.
