My wife and I have just returned from our 'cook's tour' of Sicily and stayed in the neighbouring campground which we used ss a base from which to to explore the abundance of foodieness that overwhelms this fabulous island
We dined here twice with the food enticing back for our last night
The best food we ate was at Duomo in Ragusa - another class - another review
but here the format is that booking is essential with the fresh complete Italian format set menu changing every day - as a cook and foodie that to me is as it should be as in Sicily eveything IS so fresh- so why wouldn't you cook a fresh menu every day?!
Your booking does not guarantee where you or anyone else sits- that is as first come first served as it can be- i e if you are an Italian family of 8 you won't find many pre- laid tables for that number!
The point is that the service starts from 8 pm for all and we found the anti pasto and pasta courses to be the stand outs but all very good well presented modern dishes
I advise arrival on the nose of or a tad before 8 as the theatre of nature gives you 40 minutes or so through your complimentary aperitif and anti pasto on the beautiful open terrace before the sun in all its Sicilian splendour sets before the bay teams with the lights and soft chugging of the fishing boats
The punctuation for me is that my favourite Regaleali wine Cattarato was available
I have to admit that relatively speaking this is a tad on the expensive side but as a frequent diner in Rome the same would have cost near double
PS - this is Sicily - don't expect an abundance of anything other than the freshest of fish or the best of vegetables and herbs
