if it was we would return frequently just to spend time with Patrizia and have Liliana delight us in the kitchen. Spent two nights at La Giara in a modest, yet spacious and comfortable room. Even though it was chilly and rainy we sat on our porch undercover and enjoyed a jug of wine we purchased at a Nicolosi grocery. Patrizia very patiently advised us about our visit to Mt. Etna via email as we planned our trip and in person when we arrived. She recommended a local restaurant for dinner, that was so good we returned the second night. As we checked out she asked about our itinerary stop by stop and offered tips on sites, her recommended length of stay, and dishes to order based on where we would be. She is absolutely one of the best hosts we've encountered on our travels throughout Italy. Liliana made sure we had enough to eat, served homemade breads and pastries, quickly refilled our coffee cups, and offered us heated cheese with honey on our final morning. An added bonus is we had the opportunity to meet Patrizia's friends (former B&B guests) from Australia who returned to Sicily just so they could spend time with Patrizia.
