“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

We heard about this place from two locals and had an excellent seafood dinner with terrific service in a beautiful dining room. Highlight was the "mixed seafood" appetizer that was easily a meal in itself with all manner of just-from-the-ocean delicacies. Most amazing was the arrival of a whole octopus, sitting up on its 8 legs before being expertly carved by our host. It was superb, even if some of us couldn't bear to eat it after seeing it "walk" in.

“Excellent wine, excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We went to Caico as suggested by the guys at the B&B, to no disappointment. It all started akwardly, with no one taking care of us for nearly ten minutes. But as soon as we were given the menu it all changed: my partner was given a plate of clams to try, as she didn't exactly know what these are - this was of course free of charge; the waiters were wery patient in accommodating our requests.
We had a threesome of smoked fish as a starter, together with olive ascolane and little mozzarella fritters; then she got a bowl of spaghetti with clams that were much appreciated, and I got myself a superb sea bream.
The staff did manage to find a very good Alcamo white wine to go with our dishes, and Courvoisier and Passito to close the meal.
Customer service at its best, together with genuinely good and tasty food: thank you Caico for a very good night.

“Mediocre food, terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

should have been more worried when I saw the menu was in 5 languages, anyone that tells you the locals eat here is lying-it is clearly a tourist joint. arrived early on a monday evening (third party to arrive) seated promptly and ordered quickly. appetizers, typical sicilian salad, arrived quickly and was very tasty. after this waited about one hour for our next course which comprised of grilled fish and spaghetti with clams. both dishes were bland and unremarkable. after this took another half hour to get our check. save yourself the money and time and walk a few doors down to the local pizza cafe

“Slow service but excellent fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

We went there to taste fresh fish, and so we did. This was one of the few places where the fish really tasted of sea water, as it should be. Nice and fresh. Price was very fair given the quality. Unfortunately the service was extremely slow... so slow we gave up on waiting for the free liqueur kindly offered by the owner to apologise for the slow service... but they were very nice. We liked it!

“Carpaccio of Octopus - that's a soulful delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

Fish and seafood lovers, if you ever go to San Leone don't you miss this piece of art cuisine! Try the carpaccio of Octopus which we found for 1st and last time at this location and it was quite a tickle for the soul. Wine was wonderful and the rest of the dinner was really delicious. This was the second good restaurant that left a complete and good memory in out heads. And it was worth it! Ask the locals, trust the locals, and follow the instructions - these are the tips for delicious food in Sicily:)
