We came here following TA reviews. The staff was not too cordial, as we arrived at 2-30 p.m, it looked like they would like to get rid of everybody a.s.a.p (before 3 p.m). Although there were 3 tables occupied outside, the waiters cleared nearby tables and turned over chairs, looked not very friendly. We were seating inside, ordered antipasto al crudo, wich consisted of 6 pcs. of different kind of oysters, then came primi as a dish of fried fish and calamari and shrimps, and another one of grilled gamberetti. Desided not to order any dessert, cause everybody from the staff wanted to finish lunch time and go home as I described earlier.
All in all - the food is good, the view is very nice and we wish you to come here in the ordinary time to enjoy the service, because I hope it is much better, then we got :)

The greatest little fish restaurant I have ever been to, no exaggeration. The antipasti are incredibly good, particularly a salad of oranges and spring onions (yes, I agree it sounds strange) and small mussles called totelli.

A great restaurant with friendly staff. A lovely view from your table. Meals are reasonably priced and have a home cooked taste. Highly recommended.

a family run restaurant with delicious, super fresh food; a welcoming, friendly staff; sitting just across the street from the water. the chef himself came out to take our order and welcomed us like family. we took his recommendations on pasta (one was spaghetti di frutti di mare) and fish (acciuga or white anchoies, and sardina or sardines). the food was great. one of the best meals i had in italy, and relatively inexpensive at 37 euro (which included bread and a half carafe of local wine).

This small local restaurant is just across the street from the fish market in Aci Trezza with the requisite fresh fish of the day on ice outside. The staff is very friendly and prices are so cheap. They make an excellent Alice Marinate and the steamed mussles are the best I've had in Sicily. Be sure to get there early for lunch as the place fills up with locals as soon as the business surrounding close for the noontime-afternoon siesta. For no frills, basic but good and fresh seafood this is the place.
