Followed the guidebook and gave this place a try. The place appeared to be pricey but didn't mind that at first. However, the service was slow and inattentive despite being quiet (3-4 tables occupied in total), our waitress seemed either bored or couldn't be bothered...More

Hotel recommended this place so thought we'd try it. Enjoyed the swordfish steak but found it a bit pricey. The place is beautifully decorated

Ate there last Saturday at 8.30pm; empty restaurant apart from one German couple. Given every other restaurant we had walked past was heaving, we put that down to being early, expecting the locals were having their aperitivo elsewhere. Doubts were confirmed by odd, flavourless food....More

We went here because of the many positive reviews. But it was the worst eating experience during our stay in Sicily. We think there's a new chef or something. As a starter we had the dish of the day (artichoke salads with shrimps). Sounds lovely,...More

I was so impressed with the food on Thursday night that I revisited again on Friday night. The service was impeccable and as a lone diner was not made to feel a pariah. The octopus and squid dishes were wonderfully cooked and presented. Everything was...More

Recommended by the concierge at our hotel, the location was with easy walking distance. From the front it didn't look like much but inside the setting was beautiful. We're still not used to the late dinner thing, so at 7:30 when it opened we had...More
