Immersed in what looks like a scene straight out of a Luchino Visconti film, this fine food establishment is a true jewel in the heart of the ancient Ibla section of Ragusa, Sicily. The La Rosa family welcomes you to their restaurant inside a 19th-century construction entirely sculpted in the rock and splendidly restored. It is home to the Relais & Chateaux Boutique Hotel, with its handful of luxury rooms, and the fine food served at the elegant Locanda Don Serafino. The incredible setting is of course just a part of the extraordinary experience. Top-shelf cuisine and a warm welcome await. Vincenzo Candiano, the restaurant’s talented young, self-taught chef, gives us his take on Sicilian food, with all-new nuances in every morsel. The wine cellar boasts more than 1900 different labels, all in line with the high-quality dishes served up. Beyond Sicily, there’s a nod to classic Mediterranean cuisine and contemporary experimentation. Fresh flavor that echoes ancient tradition and the sea, but not without the legendary products of the land, like Nebrodi Mountains black pork, Ragusan Caciocavallo cheese, quail, rabbit, Pancetta. Food with character. Prepare yourselves for a stay unlike any other. You’re going to be pampered through and through, throughout.
