No frills, delicious fresh pasta and pizza.

We were a party of 10. Very nice people. It was packed Saturday night.

“NOT how Mama used to make it!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Basically a disgrace. Pasta courses are microwaved, hence arriving on the table after ordering within 5 minutes maximum. Steaming hot in the middle, pasta was awful. Just tasteless rubbish.
My wife ordered Frito Misto. I am being generous here with the 5 minute wait, it was more like 4 minutes. Frito Misto consisted of 3 squid rings in batter and a pile of crispy whitebait. I use these terms very lightly.No tartare sauce or aioli just a wedge of lemon. Minimum effort and minimum effect. The meal was just awful. Two tables next to us also ordered very similar meals and arrived with the same speed and with the same cooking technique.
Both tables looked a bit shocked at the premature arrival of the orders. Pizza looked ok, you can't microwave them, although I bet you they have tried.
Waste of time and money. Opposite the Cave restaurant just in case you get lost and find yourself looking at a little taste of Sicily, thinking this looks ok, make the mistake of sitting down, placing your order, stop, think, look around, see other punters, think again, is Mama really cooking us some really tasty tucker?..........UR NO. Pay and take faith that was your worst meal this holiday.

“Authentic Sicilian”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

We chose this restaurant on the recommendation of a local friend. Our experience here was similar to that of many others - the food was outstandingly authentic Sicilian, and the service was, well, unhurried and easygoing. We were all very pleased with our orders, it was the genuine thing - I loved my tagliatelle with scallops and I was a bit jealous of a group member's fritto misto - a fried mix-up of whitebait, prawns and other bits of seafood. Everyone in our group was happy, and The prices were very reasonable.

“Don't waste your time and money here”
Reviewed 30 July 2010

Starter was ok, a salad buffet that was a little tired looking but passable. Main course inedible, plate of pasta and pesto. My husband fared no better with a pasta/seafood dish. As the full plates were being cleared the waitress asked if we would like dessert! We paid and left.
