“Situated right on the sea”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Situated by the waters edge this is a very good restaurant. The food and service is excellent. In the area it is one of the expensive ones but really worth every euro.

“A delicious surprise”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

En route from Taormina to Noto we decided on a whim to drive to Brucoli. Driving down towards Augusta we started to wonder what we'd gotten ourselves into; the scenery isn't exactly beautiful (the area is home to a big oil refinery corporation). But we persevered and eventually ended up at Al Castello. And we were so happy we did. We were seated outside on the long veranda, with perfectly laid tables on white linen. The view of the sea with Mount Etna in the background was breathtaking, the service faultless, and the food was simply fantastic. We selected fish from the display and the waiter suggested a couple of vegetable side dishes. Delicious and fresh. To finish off we shared a decadent chocolate fondant. It's not cheap, but definitely worth it.

“Seaside restaurant with great food & service”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Usually when going to Brucoli we stop at Miramare, since it's the first restaurant when entering the village. Fortunately, this time the Miramare was closed.
We had a mixed starter, then "linguine al nero di seppia" and risotto allo scoglio. The "linguine al nero di seppia" were GREAT! Pasta covered in a pitch black tomato sauce.

The bill was bit more than expected, but well worth the food, service and location.

“Al Castello”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

The menu at Al Castello offered some great seafood choices. We absolutely enjoyed trying some local dishes while sitting outside overlooking the sea. Our server was prompt and attentive. If I remember correctly the menu was all in Italian and our server spoke very limited English, so it is helpful to have a translating book or know some key words to know what you are ordering. Overall, we had a great meal with a great atmostphere.
