“Best Sicilian food in town!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Nice place close to the see. Friendly waiters but the best thing is the food! Fresh seafood for sooo many different spaghetti plates, it will be difficult to choose only one :) It's a MAST if u want a taste of the best Sicilian typical food!

“Nice little restaurant with friendly service.”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

The food was very salty and just OK. We were with a tour group and found that we often had a separate menu and lower quality food.

“Very noisy - average food”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We chose this restaurant based on the previous reviews for our last night in Sicily.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere if you are a big crowd and enjoy lots of music and loud talking but as a couple we were looking for a romantic last night. A small band of musicians played (Russian?) music very loudly for several minutes and then came round asking for money. There were no candles on the table and the restaurant was very bright.

The menu is a Russian/Italian mix which seemed a bit strange and again wasn't what we had hoped for on our last night.

The restaurant is great if you want a bright, bold and fun night out with friends. If you are looking for a romantic evening it's probably not for you.

“Quiet and peaceful”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We loved it - it was much more peaceful than the others in the area and the seating was more comfortable. The owner is quiet and so the whole reastaurant is run quietly, which we love. The food was all delicious.

“Excellent food, the owner a gentleman”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

Ate here twice with my family during a recent visit, mainly because the food was excellent (particularly the Zuppa di Pesce, which was a wide platter containing a range of beautifully cooked fish, rather than a bowl of fish soup), but also because the owner was very good at putting everyone at their ease. Our children really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
