Overview

Following the success of their Locanda Don Serafino restaurant, the La Rosa brothers, Antonio and Giuseppe, decided to turn their hand to the hotel business. They now run an 10 room boutique property in Ibla, one of the oldest parts of the UNESCO-listed Sicilian town of Ragusa.

Having been occupied for centuries, the brothers chose to place some of the property's rooms in ancient caves carved out of the rock face. Today, you can emerge from their private entrances and stroll down to the 2 Michelin starred restaurant for some of the best food and wine on the island.

Activities

If you are after some sun, sand and sea, the hotel and restaurant's beach club is only a half hour drive away at the Lungomare Andrea Doria. Ragusa's old town, known as 'Ibla' is the perfect place for browsing tiny boutiques, stopping occasionally for a glass of wine.

At the restaurant, budding chefs can enrol in a cooking class, to learn from the talented chefs there. Further afield, some of Sicily's prettiest villages and hilltop towns are within a short drive.

Dining

Opened by Antonio and Giuseppe La Rosa, the restaurant Locanda Don Stefano is one of Ragusa and Sicily's best restaurants.

The restaurant has won acclaim (including its 2 Michelin stars) for its contemporary take on classic Sicilian dishes, led by the talented chef Vincenzo Candiano. Located in the stables of an old warehouse, the restaurant area has been beautifully refurbished, with an outdoor patio for evening al fresco dining. 
The restaurant's wine cellar contains over 1000 bottles of the finest wines from Italy and around the world.

When at Ristorante Locanda Don Stefano, we highly recommend the degustation menu. The chef will come to discuss your individual taste preferences and suitable wines for pairing. It's an outstanding experience for all foodies.
