However, this is not one of those beach restaurants housed in a shabby shack. The place is across the road from the beach, with a nice terrace. Expect a very efficient service, fresh food from the buffet, lovely gelati and excellent cocktails (with a generous...More

Not many places were open over Easter so we stumbled into this one which served small little dishes to select from the counter. The rabbit was really nice. Full and half portions available. Not particularly cheap but ok.

This is my only bad eating experience in all of Sicily and Italy, in many years of regular travel there. The food is marginal, but the employees here are surly and mean. There are no prices posted, so they charge locals a small amount and...More
