Fodor's Review

It's worth the short drive or inexpensive taxi fare from Monreale to reach this restaurant, which is famous for well-prepared local specialties. Dine alfresco on seafood dishes such as bavette don Carmelo, a narrow version of tagliatelle with a sauce of swordfish, squid, shrimp, and pine nuts. Other regular favorites include involtini alla siciliana (meat roulades stuffed with salami and cheese); good-value set menus are also available, and local wines make a tasty accompaniment. The restaurant is open for Friday and Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch, or for reservations of at least 15 people.
