Noto, Sicily

Rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in the early 18th century, the town of Noto was reconstructed using the sophisticated architectural Baroque style of this period. With very walkable streets, impressive structures, the best almond granita and brioche perhaps in Sicily, and the storied Noto Cathedral sitting prominently in the heart of Noto, this community oozes with charm and personality.

The Small List

  1. Ristorante Crocifisso - In a low-key neighborhood of Noto, chef Marco Baglieri uses impeccable ingredients to devise divine versions of traditional Sicilian dishes. 
  2. Dolceria Corrado Costanzo - For pastries, granita, and brioche in Noto, Costanzo is justifiably the most famous. As any good Sicilian will tell you, the best way to start the day is with ice cream for breakfast. Phone: +39 0931 835243
