“Happiest day in Sicily spent here”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Basically what all the other reviews say! Dominic makes you feel very welcome and is so flexible with the menu you will definitely end up with something amazing. My boyfriend who normally doesn't like seafood ended up having 2 seafood dishes and loved them both! We spent all day here after lunch on the sunbeds drinking wine, fantastic day!!

“Outstanding lunch - still thinking of it”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Don't look at the menu - listen to Dominic (the owner) and you will get a meal to remember for a very long time. Unbelievably fresh raw fish delicately prepared, octupus salad that blew us away and then delicious pasta and risotto.
Free shuttle pick up and return, charming location and service from an age gone by.
We returned a couple of days later for a superb repeat performance - what better recommendation can i give.

Thank you Dominic for a grand time

“Looooooved it here”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Dominic is an AWSOME host . He is so cool chilled and laid back . He makes you feel relaxed and happy with nothing too much trouble. We had a wonderful lunch of the freshest seabass. We also started with the seafood risotto, we couldn't choose so we had both. I love the fact that the menu specials were based on the freshest ingredients they could find at market. We had planned to leave after lunch but Dominic offered us some sun loungers on the beach to relax and enjoy the sun. How could we refuse. It is now 6.30pm and we still haven't left. We also had amazing massages on the beach and Dominic has offered us a driver to take us back to our hotel as a cab was too long a wait . What an amazing guy and an amazing place. Don't miss it. Even the freshly squeezed orange juice is from oranges from his wife's garden. Superb!

“Simply fresh fish with great friendly service”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Arrived early and sat on the beach with a lovely breeze with glass of Prosecco then sat down for dinner. Dominic the owner sat us and reviewed the menu and specials. We choose the specials that started with a shrimp carpaccio with watercress gray sea salt ,olive oil and orange zest. Perfect balance of favors. The shrimp was not overpowered and the taste was fresh. Then a fresh octopus salad with lemon and olive oil was perfect. The pasta was tagliatelle with tomatoes, procinci mushrooms, and olive oil. Pasta was fresh and soft and good balance of favors . Main course of baked sea bass with served whole and served tabled side with tomatoes , capers ,olives I think again the preparation allowed the freshness of the fish come through and did not overpower the dish. We had a Sicilian Chardonnay (Alcesti) that was excellent. It is a little out of the way from town but well worth the adventure. What more can I say great evening with excellent dinner.
