“Tourist trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Lousy food especially the Pizza. Staff is incompetent, more interested in smoking and talking with each other. Stay away from this Resto.

“Mad owner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Guy who runs this speaks some English and is quite chatty. Had a lovely lunch of tortellini, mushrooms and ham, followed by lemon sorbet and strawberries. Overlooks the harbour in Porticello.

“Very poor experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We were vigorously enticed into this place but when we explained we only wanted a beer and pizza, having eaten a large lunch earlier, their interest immediate waned. We asked if the pizza with sea urchin was available because we didn't think that there were sea urchins in the port that day but we were told it was so we ordered it. What arrived was a decent enough pizza base smoother in tomato, lots of raw garlic, no cheese and a couple of dollops of fish sauce, not a sea urchin in sight. We were then pointedly ignored until our plates were cleared without mention of why we had left most of the meal.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Given the dearth of decent eating establishments in this working fishing port, this place tries fairly hard to please everyone from hotels in the local area - even laying on free transport. So, it's hard to be too hard on the place. We even went back a second time. However, if you're looking for top-notch Italian cuisine this is not your place. Cheapish and cheerful lunchtime pizza? Go for it.

“Average and variable food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Service a bit chaotic one night we had our mains before our appetizers but food okay. Another night service still disorganized but food again okay too good. There are better options nearby.
