il Baglio La Pergola

Located off of the main roads but still in the city, you feel like you are in the country. This beautifully restored antique “masseria” makes for a wonderful setting on the patio in the summertime while the interior is warm and inviting. There is also plenty of easy parking. Great pizzas, fish dishes and steaks along with delicious traditional Sicilian pasta dishes. Sometimes there are large parties (weddings, etc) there so if you are a couple ask to be in one of the smaller rooms.

Caffé Sicilia

The tradition of the Tasca family began in 1946, when the brothers Tasca revived the historic Caffé Italia in Ragusa. Driven by an uncommon resourcefulness, in 1962 opened a new business in the center of Ragusa, Sicily, And shortly after in 1964 inaugurated the first reception hall in Ragusa. Over the years with great care and creativity the Tasca brothers have perfected an excellent tradition of pastry that is handed down and preserved by skilled and experienced hands. Today, thanks to the renewed commitment of Maurizio Tasca and the people who work together, Caffé Sicilia can boast a high level of professionalism and excellent service. Their friendliness and helpfulness to the customer is their strength.
