Le Muse

| NOTO |


A Sicilian Myth.
Demetra, the Greek goddess of earth, and the Latin Cerise, queen of the messengers, are laid here, on the wheat fields of the ancient city of Eloro, to bless crops irradiated by sun and sea.
Only such a magical place could inspire Le Muse, a contemporary Mediterranean restaurant of La Corte del Sole, an ancient Sicilian Masseria in the countryside of Noto.

“Riposati; un campo che ha riposato dà un raccolto abbondante”.


A tasteful experience of colors and countryside close to Noto


Le Muse Restaurant is within Hotel La Corte del Sole. With its two cozy and intimate rooms and a beautiful terrace overlooking the Oasis of Vendicari, it offers tasteful summertime outdoor dining.

It is here that farmers and the owners, while welcoming their guests, show vast fields and its agricultural crops.

While admiring the countryside discover ancient flavors, traditional recipes, local products, and the best wines of Sicily. All under a beautiful sun and a breathtaking view of the sea.

Tradition and Innovation of Sicilian flavors


Le Muse Restaurant is constantly evolving: the search for raw products cooked every morning by our chefs, our organic and spices garden, the choice of recipes to create menus related to tradition, are proposed in a creative way so that all five senses can enjoy the most ancient and important flavors known to men.

Dishes are prepared by choosing pasta made with Sicilian antique grains, the best rice, organic extra virgin olive oil of La Corte del Sole, and other well-known Slow Food products.



Prepare ingredients, cook, taste.

This is the philosophy of our cuisine, elaborated with love and creativity and imagination by our Chefs Rosario Vaccarisi and Lorenzo Insolia who daily select for you raw products picked from the garden, matured by the sun, and using ingredients such as Pasta, rice, high quality oil and recognized Slow Food products.

“I love Sicily. Cooking is a gesture of love for me.”


“I have never emigrated. I did not have the need to.”


A field of sun-kissed vegetables


The ancient Masseria La Corte del Sole wants to keep alive soul and the identity of the place, its history, and its traditions linked to country life.

For this reason, for some time we have begun cultivating a vegetable garden so to produce genuine vegetables without the use of chemical fertilizers, fertilized by the generous sun of the South and by the breeze from the Vendicari reserve.

Get lost in a maze of herbs and scents


Nearby the entrance of the Hotel, there is a Garden of Herbs. Thyme, rosemary, sage, lavender, and fresh vegetables are used daily buy our chefs for the preparation of their specialties.

Discover the Garden of Aromi: guests at La Corte del Sole can walk through the maze of dry walls and smell the typical Sicilian essences that same essence used to prepare tasteful dishes!
