If you are planning a Godfather trip to Savoca this restaurant is a must for lunch, avoid the others you will be grateful, Bar Vitelli is heaving and good for photos but Gelsonero is the place for lunch. This restaurant was rcommended by our Hotel Concierge, Martin at the Belmond Sant Andrea in Mazzaro. I had the antipasto which was a meal in itself and the wines were sublime.The restaurant is easy to miss it as it is just back down the hill going out of town on the left

This one is my favorite! Great food! Second stay here. Try eggplant with mozzarela and tomato sos, excelent! You can’t go wrong with pasta too.
Great view from the restaurant!

We enjoyed caponata followed by very tasty homemade pasta in a mild tomatoe and vine vegetables sauce; veal in a light batter and beef with mozzarella. The food and wine were reasonably priced with very good service in a restaurant with relaxed ambiance, with open views, where distant Calabria can be viewed on a clear day.

We took a private Godfather tour and our guide recommended this restaurant.It was one of our best meals in Sicily.Its located near the road just outside Savoca. It has an amazing view and their are a few little outside terrace ‘s.The pasta is freshly made and delicious. You have to wait a little longer as everything is made from scratch but well worth the wait. You can enjoy your wine and soak up the view.
