Great location...
But thats where it stops!
(Fritto misto from a scary movie!
Rubbery, burned calamari rings, unedible cray fish and little boney fishes from a child fish tank!)

(Dont go to any of the Lungomare restaurant!)

Recommended by the locals, we were expecting something special at this seafood restaurant. It started well with a lovely wine and a lovely view, but then nothing happend the next 1.5 h. A disaster with kids ! When the food eventually turned up, it was a huge disappointment. Nothing special at all. What on earth went wrong this evening?

What a great restaurant, provided that you're a seafood lover. We had lunch outside for 7, beautifully cooked and matched by a good Sicilian wine selection. Make sure the waiter understands what you've asked for though, or ask the boss, Giovani, who speaks English. The odd drink did get forgotten, but not enough to lower the excellent rating.

We were a small party taken here by our guide for lunch at this seafront restaurant.

The menu of mainly seafood offered an excellent selection of Sicilian cuisine. If you are not a seafood lover, this is not the place for you as the non-seafood dishes are very limited.

Service was very good and the friendly staff spoke English.

Prices of the food and wine were very reasonable.

This was our fifth time on Sicily. One of our maingoals, is to find the best restaurats for our eveningdinner. This restaurant I got reveiwed by a local woman. Risacca is at the "lungomare" at the coast. You can eat outside, but as we had small children, and the cars is driving a long the coastroad, we choose to sit inside at the very cosy and italian restaurant, mainly visited by locals/italians. The owner was really typicall sicilian, charming and made the guest feel welcome. We were waiting for our food for a while, but for us, it was just a sign of wellprepared food. We were especially fond of the seafoodrisotto. There was plenty of fish/seashells in it, and the taste was fantastic. The dessert was also very good. We did not reach the antipasta, but from the looks at the other guests plates, it seems very temting. A good choise, if you visit the area around Capo Dórlando, and easy to find driving along the coast.
