“Grat Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

I had dinner there in June 2014 with my wife.
I had linguine with lobster which was just great, my wife had a very nice pasta as well. Then we had some swordfish rolls also great.
We spent around 60€, in Sicily there are similar place a bit cheaper but all in all I recommend it.

“Excellent classy dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

This local restaurant takes you back to the last century ( at least the interior does).
The food is great, fresh and packed with flavor.
Grilled spada with home made potato-chips cannot describe the taste. My 13y old son loved every bit of it.
My fresh pasta with seafood and paccheri was excellent.
My wife's dish of risotto was cooked to perfection.
Also recommendable the white wine : Mandrarossa Viognier.

As they say in french "worth the detour"

“Elegance and high quality - a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

As recommended in lonely planet, this charming restaurant is tucked on a corner near the station. Pietro Sardo, the warm and welcoming chef and proprietor, has been in business for 46 years and is firmly part of the Mazara establishment.
The speciality is seafood. We had the carpaccio of seafood antipasto, which was light and beautifully prepared. We shared this, and the rest of the meal, which as usual in Italy, was no problem at all. For a primo, we had the recommended fresh spaghetti a la Bettola, with prawns, baby tomatoes, parsley, pistachios and ricotta salata - gorgeous!
We decided to skip the secondo, and had a plate of grilled vegetables instead, which again was marvellous - cooked freshly and well worth the 15 minute wait.
Then we had fresh fruit salad, and shared a dolce Della casa - a light sponge covered ricotta filled cake.
We had a bottle of Inzolia, two bottles of water and coffees - all terrific value for €60.
