A nice, funny, typical south Italy experience in this ristorantino. Just a bit off the commercial restaurants in San Vito, I strongly recommend this small sicilian restaurant. Long menu of fish food and carpacci. Cosy atmosphere and funny owner will make it a great dinner. Prices and not low but quality justifies them. Fish is fresh and dishes really well... More

The place is small but cozy, the menu is rich in typical dishes from home made fish cous cous to intriguing fried fish balls. I tried the excellent Spaghetti con i bianchetti (small little fishes). Even a simple dish like the spaghetti alle vongole (with clams) are tasty and al dente (cooked to perfection). Unbeatable the Caponata ! A nice... More

Overall average, since the fish couscous was good but the caponata was average, as well as the octopus salad. Must say that my visit was short and I didn't try other dishes. As sicilian, my rating cannot be more than ok.

Amazing food. Fresh fish and I would recommend to try raw fish, red prawns in particular. The price is honest related the quality of the food. Amazing staff. Worth the visit!!!

When it is timw to do payment, we have realized that they added the appetizers to the bill as well. Not a hospital behaviour to do a... More

An Italian in-law who really knows his food highly recommended this place and was spot on. It's tiny - only 6 or 7 tables - and easy to just walk past without noticing. The owner and his son clearly know their food which is fresh, seasonal and oh so very bellisimo. Every dish is personalized and served as if you... More

Went on a recommendation from family who holiday in San Vito Lo Capo. On arrival, it was much smaller than expected - they have seating for eight diners outside the restaurant and 3 tables inside. We sat out and were gradually joined by other dinners who stopped, chatted to the chef and decided to take the plunge. The food is... More
