This was one of the best restaurants in which i have ever eaten. There is no menu; you get what is offered that day, but what food! Five courses, from antipasto, through primo piatto, secondo piatto, to fruit and desert, with local wine, excellent coffee. Everything is locally sourced and the hosts proudly proclaim that the food and drink is chilometri zero e stagionali - it travels zero kilometres and is seasonal.

I have paid a lot more for a lot less food that was nowhere near as good.

Booking is said to be essential but we were lucky as we just dropped by and got a table. However, there are only four tables and this is a popular place.

This is a proper Sicilian restaurant, serving proper Sicilian food. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

This was our third night in Sicily and after a full day touring Palermo, we were without a dinner reservation. Our host had suggested Buseto Palizzolo as a destination. While checking out TripAdvisor, I came across La Casetta. The reviews were all 5 Stars, with glowing descriptions of the hosts, Franco and Stella, their hospitality as well as their food. After calling to make a last minute reservation, we made our way to the restaurant.
To begin, it’s never happened that a restaurant owner would call, asking what car I’m driving, having passed me on the road, as he went to pick up a fresh ricotta that he had to have us try... what a thoughtful start to an amazing meal!
We arrived (the gate was left open for us) and were met by Franco & Stella, who preceded to describe our dinner for the evening. A serving of various “antipasti” to begin: Bruschetta with pomodoro, Caponata (classic Sicilian eggplant dish), olives, grilled eggplant & zucchini, vegetable couscous, frittata di cipolla, salami, cheese, and grilled artichoke... I can’t forget the fresh ricotta that was like tasting fresh milk!
Then came the homemade Busiate pasta with Pesto Trapanese (this is a fresh tomato sauce with almonds & basil, amazing! The meat dish consisted of Sausages, Capocolla and Vitello impanato, all cooked over the grill using Olive wood.
To accompany the meal we tried both white & red local wines (sfuso), water, coffee, and amaro with dessert of homemade Apple Crumble cake. Everything was amazing, served in a family setting. Franco & Stella we’re incredibly gracious, explaining the various dishes and visiting with us at various points during the evening. We can’t wait to share their place with friends and family. We plan to return as well ourselves. Thanks for a wonderful evening!

Thank Baffo1
