“One of the best in Sicily”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

The place is a little hidden away but an easy walk from the old city (near the Pirandello Museum). We ate in the peaceful and lush garden, with two other couples who were also foreigners: French and from South Africa. We were served by a very spritely gentleman perhaps in his fifties. He was very patient with my Italian and I think I heard him speak French to our neighbours, but he might not speak English. At any rate, he was extremely friendly and informative about the food, and very helpful though unintrusive throughout. We were glad he advised us to have a glass of Grillo wine, which I'd never heard of before but is as good as it is unusual. I ordered a fish dish in a red Messina sauce, which was a perfect ending after a superb appetizer of ricotta that they offered for free, and an antipasto of shrimp. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

Had a wonderful three course meal with my girlfriend! The food was very good, very good wine pairing. The service made you feel like home! The price value was exceptional!

Friendly staff (limited English, but definitely not a problem). The food was fantastic. Seems to be a local favorite.

“Delightful surprise at the bottom of the steps from Francesco Crispi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

A small but delightful restaurant that features locally sourced food. The waitress (owner?) was very helpful with recommendations (in English) and we were not disappointed. The dishes are beautifully presented and delicious.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014

The ricotta here was a complete revelation! The owner places great store by sourcing local produce and using them to create great dishes - and a delightful evening.
