“An interesting experience for a Sunday lunch !”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

The restaurant was reccomended to us - we went on Sunday lunchtime when the menu was a little restricted. It was full, there was only one waitress - probably the best one ever, she was competent, quick and very cool. The food was average, pretty stodgy on the whole as most Sicilian food seems to be but well cooked and we were able to try lots of different things.

“an average experience”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

We were a group of 4 friends, celebrating a birthday...on the whole it was an average experience as we felt that there wasn't much choice for vegeterians, in addition the wine is served in glasses used for water. The restaurant didn't have much of the typical Sicilian atmosphere. Was a bit disappointed considering that it was highly recommended by many.

“So wonderfully warm...”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Absolutely go to this warm, welcoming restaurant for a bite to eat at the end of a day of walking, eating chocolate and shopping! The food is from 'your grandmother's kitchen' and the soups are unforgettable. Can't wait to go back!

“Wonderful Trattoria”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

A wonderful experience in a brightly lit dining room staffed by family and filled with locals. Great food and a world-class fennel dijestif made by the chef (made me weep, it was so divine!)
