You can find in this restaurant real Sicilian Food. The chef comes to your table and asks you to follow him in a special little room where he keeps fish that has been fished in the morning. And then you have to choose which one you want to eat ! Amazing !!

I love this place, but I found this time prices haven gone up incredibly fast... Food is always great, even if shrimps quality, i.e. size, is not really as the menu states and the one you are paying for -which makes, sorry, a huge difference-. Very nice atmosphere, much better than in the past. To visit! But don't be surprised... More

wow, what a place, what a fish quality... I love raw fish, and the problem was that my friend Vito understood that right away...so my portions became just huge... From fresh french Oysters, to local shrimps, scampi, local red tuna...everything was just saw good... and then the fried fish, OMG...just SO good. Visit it!!

As soon as you get into this restaurant right in the wholesale fishing area the owner takes you straight in the fishmonger where you can choose any fish from the daily pick. The plateau of raw fish was amazing as well as the cooked fish we picked. Amazing quality and good price

The restaurant serves fish in all kinds of ways. The fish is the freshest you can find and it is cooked and prepared to perfection.

I told my husband that if I were to die tomorrow, this would be my last supper. I would drop everything I was doing, hop on the plane, and dine one last time at Marmoreo! My husband and I came here while on our honeymoon over five years ago (2008), at the suggestion of our agriturismo inn keeper, and I... More

Great place for excellent fresh and raw fish. Superlatives shrimps and scampis. Not the cheapest place around but he quality is outstanding. The owner personally buys fresh fish three times a day to ensure its quality. Good Local wines but ask for suggestions. It went though a significant change and restructuring and it is a bit different than in the... More

Best fish EVER and i live on the sea!!! Do not eat anything before going there as it is a fixed price (no menu) and the amazing fish just keeps coming. I did not even get to the pasta! I can't remember what course that was but this is a gem!

In one word, GO. This was the best meal we ate in Sicily, all seven courses of it (it is a set menu - you get the day's catches from the nearby fish market). The young owner speaks very good English and was able to explain each dish to us. He also honoured us with a tour of his premises... More
