We were dropped off here by a taxi driver who picked us up at the Domina Hotel-we had requested a lift to Palermo and this is what we got!!!!!
Well it’s a funny story to look back on.

We were made feel very welcome here.
The service and food was excellent.
The atmosphere was great.
We both had our strange egg and wine starter and the bibs were actually needed because the pasta was delicious if a little messy!
You have to try the tiramisu here-unreal.
A lovely experience.

I don't want to build up your expectations. This is not a five star Michelin restaurant. It is classic Italian, red & white tablecloths, Mafia looking owner, fantastic pasta and has great service. It doesn't look like much when you walk through the doors. But when the guests begin to stroll in for lunch and are greeted by the friendly owner and exceptional staff,the place begins to come alive. Expect nothing and you will be blown away.

Having seen so many positive reviews on TA and elsewhere, we visited Don Ciccio on our first full day in Bagheria. What a mistake! From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel more like an inconvenience than a guest or customer. We have only a few words of Italian but that did not prove an obstacle anywhere else we ate. We were given menus with pictures of food. No prices, no explanation of Primi or Secondi, no help from the waiter. We were asked if we wanted wine. No wine list, just red or white. I asked if we could have a carafe but we were told we could only order a bottle. Strange, as before we left, the Italians seated at the table next to us were served a carafe. Service was lightning quick so I assume everything was pre cooked. The food was edible but definitely no better than average. Naturally, we declined dessert or coffee. The gimmicks with the boiled egg and sweet wine and the paper bibs might have been cute if the service and ambience was better, but were more of an irritation than anything else. My wife went to pay by credit card and even that was dealt with in a surly and unfriendly manner. We left no tip as the service was so incredibly poor and this is an extremely rare event for us.

Given the number of 5 star reviews this establishment gets, I was amazed at our experience. However, for us, this emperor has no clothes.

We wanted to taste local food, and we found it. After asking the locals, we were addressed to Don Ciccio. Nice ttrattoria, a welcome cup of passito and biscuits, a not too quick service, and in the end a not cheap price. Never mind, it was werthtrying.
