We visited mid week and had a lovely meal here. The service was definitely more friendly than in some of the other Balestrate restaurants. The manager showed us the fresh fish and we enjoyed all of our food, especially the salmon pasta! The staff were very patient with our attempts to understand the menu, and the meal and wine were very reasonably priced.

Family of four, two courses, drinks and litre of white wine for €74. Pleasant atmosphere and good food. Chicken sticks for children's starter and anti pasta for adults. Menu heavy on seafood though much of which was frozen. Decent enough food and service though.

My wife and I decided to stop by this Restsurant based on TA reviews. The food was great and the service was excellent the price of the food was considerably low and we take a whole three hours to enjoy our meals. The stop was worth our time and we decided to make a reservation for the last day before our departure from Sicily

This restaurant was recommended us by our hotel (Villagio Petruso) and we were very pleased to discover this very nice restaurant. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We took cheese antipasti (such a big plate for the 2 of us!) and seafood pastas. It was excellent! Their home made limoncello was the best I have ever tried! I highly recommend this restaurant!

Don't be put off by the cafe/fast food look of this place! Truly one of the best experiences we had in Sicily. It has to be said that this is a fish restaurant. The antipasti was fresh, plentiful and imaginative - not the usual over marinated fare - the fish caught that morning and brought to the table to choose. My daughter and I chose the (huge) oysters and the waitress (owner) brought us two glasses of white wine to chase them down. We could not have been made to feel more welcome.
