I visited the restaurant with my fiancée on 25th November. The first thing I noticed was a very very warm greeting from Cristina, Antonia and Nino. The service provided by them was very professional. They suggested the food and the wine and it was very good choice and we enjoyed the meal a lot. Definitely it was the best restaurant... More

Came here for an early bday celebration with wifey. Food was absolutely outstanding. The red shrimp tartare was one of a kind, when you eat it with the generous slices of black truffle, this antipasti is already sending you to heaven. Grilled fish of the day was outstanding, lobster linguine brought my pallets to another level. I saw what other... More

There are a couple of very fond memories of our meal here. Firstly the pasta in my view was the best in town. We had seafood pasta, and the pasta itself was perfect, the mix of clams, mussels, prawns and other bits were generous. Would make an excellent lunch dish to share between two. Second for antipasti we had a... More

Although leary of a tourist trap, I embraced the "pick out your dinner" invitation of the host of this open air restaurant and was not disappointed. My fish came out perfectly cooked with simple seasoning and a side of fresh, unadulterated grilled vegetables. An excellent stop for fresh seafood.

It was recommended by our local travel guide so we had to try it! It didn't disappoint! The seafood risotto and grilled seafood was very delicious. All six of us had various types of pasta and seafood dinner and they were all delicious! The desserts didn't disappoint either. Tiramisu was great! Our waitress, Antonieta, was very accommodating and very pretty!... More

Visited this restaurant after reading Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. Even though the season is drawing to a close, the restaurant was busy and the staff efficient and very pleasent. The reason I am giving a four star instead of a five star review is because the bread offered on arrival was stale. Unforgiveable in Italy I think! We... More

If in Sicily, we have to eat here! We were regulars there on our last holiday and returned this year to have the same great experience. The food was great: amazing zuppa di pesce and seafood pasta! Service was fast and very friendly and welcoming (the place was super busy, but someone was always there if we needed anything). Definitely... More

A good restaurant on the beach promenade. Well located. It is decorated nice and upmarket. Pricing is the same as other restaurants on the beach road. It stays open when most other restaurants close at 15h00. Stays open late. Friendly obliging staff who were very attentive. Family run. Well presented upmarket looking food. Definitely try the fish/seafood dishes. The seafood... More
