We enjoyed a good lunch here on the terrace overlooking the sea. Both of us ordered pasta dishes which were tasty, flavoursome and reasonably priced. Can also recommend the hazelnut semi fredo. Service was efficient and courteous. Recommended.

The restaurant has a charming balcony (like many at the coast) over the water. The food was very good but the best was the quite inexpensive 8 euros 1 liter of wine we had :). Great food, Great view!

We had a lovely meal, with excellent service. The only drawback was that the espresso was served in cold cups, I.e. the coffee was not hot.

View good. Shame about the food. The sauce looks like it came in a bottle and the pasta from a packet. Not what you expect in Sicily.
