This restaurant does not take bookings but the service is fast and the food simple and delicious. An explanation of the dishes on the menu is entertaining. The food is mainly Sicilian.

We arrived late and the place was really closed. But they took us in anyway and made us the best custom meal. Friendly, warm staff. Great food on top of that. Would recommend again and again.
