Le Dodici Fontane can be found located inside the Villa Neri resort in Linguaglossa, Sicily. This restaurant serves traditional Sicilian dishes, in a beautiful setting. Placed in the shadow of Mount Etna, this restaurant boasts some great scenery - so is a nice location for lunch. At dinnertime, you can also enjoy the illuminated outdoor swimming pool, which offers an ethereal atmosphere.

“Although the food is simple, traditional Sicilian cooking methods and flavour combinations are used...”

When we arrived, we were greeted and shown to our table. It is worth noting that when we went, the service was somewhat mediocre – however that may not be indicative of the service in general, perhaps we just experienced an off evening.

We chose a bottle of the Feudo di Santa, Tresa Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Sicily. We sipped on glasses whilst making our menu choices.

To start, we chose the mullet filled with aubergines and almonds, served with a basil and ragusano cheese pesto, as well as sautéed red and yellow tomatoes; as well as the spaghetti served with an anchovy butter sauce, pumpkin compote, and a toasted crumb.

For our main courses, we opted for the cod on purple potatoes, served with ash oil; as well as the lamb in a masala sauce, served with thyme sautéed peach.

The food was good, however this is certainly casual fare. Le Dodici Fontane would be ideal for a nice lunch, or we would recommend it for an early, or informal supper. The surrounding area is beautiful, so it’s a good stop off for anyone looking to refresh during his or her sight seeing.

Although the food is simple, traditional Sicilian cooking methods and flavour combinations are used at Le Dodici Fontane, which means it is rustic, and authentic. We certainly enjoyed our dishes, and our evening was very nice. We may not rush back, but it was a nice experience, nonetheless.
