The restaurant is located near Ethna mountain and it took ten minutes to find this restaurant since the doors were closed. The dining hall was the garden and it was a bit dark to see the meals perfectly. However, my wife and myself agreed the meals were tasty and the staff kindly explain the recommendation the wine as well as meals. Worth of visiting.

We visited this beautiful little restaurant last month for the first time and it was a unique experience. The service was excellent, very personal, the owner's daughter is the front of house manager and she recited the menu from memory, advising us on our choices. I peeked into the kitchen and the chefs, one male, one female, both looked clean and professional, and the kitchen was orderly as well as being spotless.
The restaurant is in an old 'palmento' where wine was made, and the original stone channels and gullies where the grape juice flowed are still visible. It is stocked full of interesting wines and memorabilia, and the tables are placed at intervals around the building on different levels creating a homely and welcoming environment.
We ordered a house antipasto for two and were not disappointed! Subtle flavours, a wide range of vegetables and spices created a feast which married perfectly with the Syrah we had chosen directly from the cellar.
Our first courses were ravioli filled with pistachio and a risotto with saffron cheese, the risotto was exquisite, the sweetness of the rice perfectly offset by the salty cheese. The pasta was a little thick for my liking and the sauce a little too creamy, but my husband enjoyed it.
We were too full to try their range of steaks, which included wild boar and venison, and neither did we sample the desserts which sounded delicious. They'll have to wait until next time!
The toilets were stocked with toilet paper and soap, a rare commodity here in Sicily, although I couldn't make out which was for women and which for men.
If they could improve on anything it would be the lack of a written menu, and a wine list. I personally need to look at a menu in order to make such a weighty choice, and also we felt we were taking a leap into the dark not knowing prices. All in all the value for money was quite good, we spent €60 in two, with the wine costing €15.
The only truly negative thing was the table below us who insisted on smoking even though we had said that the smoke bothered us. I felt that let them down on the service side and it is for this reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. When we walked in, we were excited because there were just 5 tables and we thought it would be like getting a nice home cooked meal. What a disappointment! The bread was stale. Our anti pasta plate was small and had some nice cheeses but one cherry tomato cut in half and a few bits of sun dried tomato. My pasta dish was in edible (too much salt). You know you have to worry a bit when you don't hear much cooking in the kitchen but you do hear a microwave. My husband's food was also too salty but he managed to eat it. They even had the gall to charge us for the pasta even though we sent it back not eaten. Eat somewhere else and you will be better off.

We went here based on the reviews on T.A. and the fact that most of them were excellent and from Italians. It proved a good decision when 2 huge pizzas arrived. These were light though and fresh with generous ingredients. We couldn't finish them and it was no problem to have them prepared for next day's lunch which was a nice touch.
All in all a good pizza experience, friendly staff. It's also a good walk out of town so you can walk it off on the way back.

Pizza davvero buona (la trevigiana è qualcosa di unico): impasto leggere e croccante, ben condita. Prezzi ottimi: 4 pizze, acqua, coca Cola e patatine per un totale di 38,50 euro. Personale gentilissimo. Torneremo sicuramente!

We were there in the end of November. Staff is really classy and professional. Pasta with mushrooms was great. Their special pizza is also worth trying because we have not found such a pizza in other parts of Sicily.

It is the perfect choice for all pizza lovers looking for excellent quality and top locations. You need to go to Antico Campanile to taste their special pizza, wood oven cooked only with almonds shells, and prepared exclusively with biological and selected ingredients that will make your dinner unique.
This restaurant is opened from Thursday to Sunday and it is recommended to booking in advance because it is almost always full. Nevertheless the atmosphere is relaxed, elegant and warm.
During summer they have a small terraced that hosts about 20 seats, while in the winter the fireplace room is the right choice.
Menu is expensive but all dishes are worth the price.
