“wonderful restaurant--worth the trip”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

A group of us were traveling around, given this restaurant as a suggestion and we all simply loved it! Delicious food, friendly and accommodating staff, wonderful visit, not to mention beautiful ocean vista and near ancient tower -- anyone anywhere in the area should definitely check it out.

“Great food. Outstanding service”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

On the recommendation of our Airbnb host we visited this place on the last night of our stay in the area at the beginning of November. Given that I don't usually enjoy eating fish, it might not have been such a good idea to go to a seafood restaurant, especially with a teenage daughter not ready to try too many new dishes. Still, we wanted to make our last evening special.

We went there quite late in the evening so we didn't get to experience the great sea view but it is in a lovely location. We came off the main highway and followed a small, winding, unpromising road that could've done with a few more signs.

The place is quite cosy and has a friendly atmosphere, exemplified by our waiter who, with his excellent English and friendly manner was able to explain, recommend, and teach, without becoming at all fed up.

My daughter didn't want anything on the menu so they made something else, just for her. Just what she wanted and how she wanted it. Fresh, tasty, and with no fuss at all. My wife and I decided to share a seafood grill, which included lobster - something I'd never eaten before. I was a little embarrassed about asking but I was courteously shown how to get to the meat and eat what proved to be a very tasty dish. The rest of the food was well prepared, well presented, and, well, very tasty.

It's not a cheap place to eat. Our host was right to recommend it as a 'special treat' but we were very happy with the value for money. We would definitely go there again given the chance.

“Fresh seafood”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

My husband and I stopped here in our way home at a lunch time on the last week of September. We didn't have much time, but it was enough to understand how wonderful the restaurant was. We liked the service very much and the food was fresh and wonderful. You could choose how you would like to have a fish, and the waiter could advice you what kind of fish would be the best in this way. Before starting to prepare, the fresh fish was showed to us in order we could accept that it would OK for us. It was worth to visit, despite this fact that the restaurant was quite far from the main road, and our GPS wouldn't find it if there weren't any signs of the restaurant. The restorant located near the sea, but the area wasn't picturesque. Speaking about the prices, we spend approximately 70 EUR. We ordered one caponata and one seafood salad, fresh fish in pistachio for each one, a bottle of water and ,sure, two espresso. It wasn't cheap but, in our opinion, not too expensive.We recommend this restaurant for people who like fresh seafood, fresh fish, flexibility of the meniu, helpful service but don't willing to luxury. For us it was the best point to finish our visit in Sicily.

“Don't forget to 'get lost' in Petrosino and have a terrific evening in this restaurant!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

This place is a miracle! We were driving by and just decided to have lunch in some place with a sea view. But it was a very good choice!
Location is good - Petrosino is a small town not far from the highway (E931 or SS115) - about 3 km.
The restaurant is cozy and elegant. Menu is interesting, staff is perfect!
We wanted to try Sicilian fish soup, it was not on the list, but the chief make it especially for us!
The soup was fantastic! Also we liked the wine list and service very much.
If the weather is good you will have a chance to enjoy the terrace and a beautiful sunset.
Definitely worth visiting!
