La Grotta is, as the name suggests, in a cave which was once used for pressing olive oil. It looks as you expect an old, traditional Italian restaurant and it is - with worthy, tasty food and good service.

Having read the previous reviews whilst we were there this looked like a must to visit. The setting is unusual but, in a restaurant that was 75% empty the cave element felt exactly what it was...... and everyone was tucked into one corner. Some of the food was very good (a starter with three elements including grilled ricotta, aubergine etc was very good) and some very much ordinary (the fried local cheese was "interesting" for a mouthful or two but two big chewy bits was a bridge too far. The fish dish was three minute tail pieces of allegedly Sea Bass (either they brought the wrong dish or they should have been embarrassed to have served it). Either way we ended up with a bill that was disproportionate to the amount and the quality of the food we were given. Because the restaurant was empty it was a very forgettable experience (compare and contrast review of Quorematto....)

We were recommended this restaurant, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, served on beautiful Sicilian plates, in a very special location. The owner/chef explained the history of the grotta, and gave us an introduction to Sicilian cuisine. A very pleasant evening!

The ravioli, pizza, steak, salad and dessert all easily rank as our no.1 meal so far on this trip. Sicilian dishes with incredibly fresh and tasty ingredients make this restaurant a must in Scicli. Enjoy!

The best food we found in Scicli. Most attentive staff and beautifully balanced dishes, very well cooked. We never normally have desserts but they were excellent.
