This is an excellent restaurant for a romantic dinner with your partner.
You can have a table very close to the sea, and you will just hear the noise of the sea, it's amazing! Food, especially fish is very good, and fresh.
One of the best places ever tried.
The staff is also kind and can suggest you good food. Will come back in the future for my next visit to Sicily!

This restaurant is all about the food. You enter through a long concrete path into a large room with bare walls and a roof only over part of the room. A few tables are situated Close to the beach but the majority have limited if any sea view. Now, that does not matter because the food is excellent with a richness and complexity in flavours that you rarely meet in this region. The menu is varied but the seafood part is the most exciting. The wine list is short but have many excellent choices. Prices are modest and value for money excellent. We would recommend not to book the tables immediately facing the beach since people who walk along the beach sometimes passes your table. It can also be windy in the late night. All in all the best food in the region.

We went there beacuse two local people said it was a very nice place to eat with really excellent food. The place looked ok, really close to the sea, but more like the restaurant was built in a garage or something. The owner was really friendly and I was waiting for the food to be the same. The onwer sugested the fish of the day ( Swordfish, 45€ kilo) and "paprika" to go with the fish and I asked for some fried calamari. Well well well... calamari WASN´T FRESH, you can taste the difference and I was shocked and I heard the microwave sound from the kitchen.. I thought: " Oh dear, my calamari is frozen...nice...".

The fishe of the day was TERRIBLE!!! No taste at att all! Not even salt!!! And the PAPRIKA, which I tought would be fresh paprika and grilled, was STRAIGHT FROM A CAN! TERRIBLE AND COSTED 6€!

SAYING SHORTLY: BAD FOOD AND HIGH PRICE! AH! THEY FORGOT US WHEN ARRIVED MORE PEOPLE, DIDN´T ASK ABOUT MORE DRINKS WAHTSOEVER!

DON´T GO THERE!

WE cased the restaurant before making a booking for the following day! At that time about 22.00 only one table was occupied and we explained the purpose of our visit. We quickly discovered that one of the diners was English and that we had mutual acquaintances back home. We booked for the following evening a table immediately overlooking the sea (not the outside terrace- because in early May the evening are cool)
We resisted the fish of the day being unfamiliar to paying by weight and chose instead the fish soup-minimum 2 persons as our main course. A carafe of wine and coffee brought the total bill to 73 euros. The seaview , the service, the quality of food , made the trek from the main road more than worthwhile. The owner speaks seven languages so communication is like so much of Sicily"no problem"

Gratitude & platitudes to Orazio & the crew for a fantastic Chipola supper. Sitting outside on the terrace, sipping a glass or two of Maurigi Sauvignon Blanc and listening to the waves hitting the beach whilst the chef creates supper, what could be better???

Highly recommended but be warned August is not the time to visit unless you like crowds.

Thanks guys, see you next time around.
