Very good Sicilian food, especially fish & seafood. It's in the old market of Ispica and is light & airy.

Salvo continues to bring a warm welcome to this wonderful business in Ispica. His granita and deconstructed cannoli is not to be missed. A great, informal, child-friendly option for breakfast, lunch or supper.
