From the start the waiting staff had no interest in us, perhaps because we weren’t Italian, we tried the very best to speak Italian with them so we weren’t ignorant tourists. We waited 40 minutes for drinks, 30 minutes for starters - which we didn’t eat until we got our drinks. We waited another hour for main courses - which were fine but not impressive compared to other Sicilian restaurant standards we experienced. We felt powerless as we couldn’t get even get their attention long enough to order a drink.

Terrible experience (ecspecially considering the price) and wouldn’t go back despite the beautiful setting.

We are currently sitting her at midnight, having started dinner at 915 waiting on desert.

Wouldn’t recommend!!

Thank Lisa-Marie S

Great place to have a fine dinner in Agrigento! Good food and wine. Particularly enjoyed the Tonno In Crosta Allo Zafferano, the Trancio Di Spada and the Sfoglia Di Cannolo dessert. Very atmospheric garden. The staff and service were impeccable. Highly recommend in particular for couples

Shrimp pasta case out cold - chef re-heated but then raw shrimp was cooked. Breaded tuna crudo was ok but same breading as amuse bouche arancini. Great ambience but food was not impressive.

Goodafternoon Erika good evening, we are sorry that did not understand our kitchen, the differences in temperature, texture and almost raw, are specially sought after. If he had given proper attention to our dishes, instead of constantly staying with the
phone in hand, waiting for our faux pas, we would have enjoyed the evening.

The first restaurant where the menu is in Italian and the staff only speaks Italian. Something you may like or not, but for us it is the start of real sicilly! The restaurant is hidden below the street level, when you see the gass station you can be sure you are at the right place. The food is of great quality and well presented. Sicilian dishes in a classy style. Very recommendable and one of the best and enjoyable restaurants I visited during my stay in Sicily.

Hidden away and recommended by our host at Euturpe Boutique hotel. We both chose fish dishes that were specials and were not disappointed. Definitely not a tourist trap as it is quite difficult to find.
