AllMusic Review by

Sicilia Bella features 16 recordings of Italian songs, most rather brief, rarely clocking over three minutes, and most rather uncharacteristic, mostly sounding similar from one song to the next. This album is a third in a multi-volume series titled Il Meglio. Some of the featured recordings include "Behvenuti a Taormina," "Da Naxos a Taormina," "Calabrisella Mia," "Cumu Si Li Cugghero Li Beddi Pira," "La Zita," "U Figghiu Emigratu," and "U Sciccareddu Sicilianu." In addition, there are some festive photos of Italians dressed in traditional attire.
