Just love it.

This restaurant is amazing, the starter like tapas from fish, but is combination with fruits. If you like fish, you love this restaurant. the service is great, the waiter knows his products and the wine. If you are in Sicily, I can advise you this restaurant.

A lovely location directly opposite the harbour and friendly attentive staff; the antipasti misti was wonderful a selection of dishes so fresh and diverse they were almost a meal in them self; the aubergine tart was as delicious as it was unusual. My prawn /squid, mussel and clam risotto was so soft and tasty being cooked to perfection. The waiter... More

Fate led us to eat here having been turned away from a higher-rated restaurant just up the road because we hadn't booked. It was a blessing in disguise - the food and the service were absolutely impeccable. The four of us ordered the mixed fish antipasti for two and there was plenty for all us. Two had fish of the...

I visited Sicily last week and while in Aci trezza I was recommended this restaurant by some locals. The food looked quite fresh and well displayed. So we decided to start with a classic antipasto misto followed by grilled swordfish and Scampi for my wife.. so far so good, very friendly staff and quite reasonable. The next day we felt... More

The staff is really friendly and very professional. We tried few starters and the ravioli. The fish is really fresh and served in a delicious combination of flavors. Excellent wine and desserts. I highly recommend it.

With a perfect location in front of the Cyclop Islands, the restaurant offers Sicilian seafood at its best. The "antipasto della casa" is good, but we recommend trying the fish of the day cooked as suggested by the maitre. Perfect and personal service, they allowed us to remain longer after end of the meal under the freah shadow of the... More

A super meal on a gloriously sunny day , the antipasti fish meze is almost a meal in itself we choose the fish for our main course ourselves which was beautifully cooked would definitely recommend. Visited on the 534 bus from Catania for 2 euros return

Authentic Sicilian restaurant in a nice little town. Mostly seafood on the menu so if you like seafood I would recommend the antipasto sampler to start.

We visited this restaurant in early May 2013 and were not disappointed. We requested a table on the upper floor and were rewarded with the best view in the house overlooking the harbor and the Cyclops rocks surrounding the little bay. Food was great and service was excellent. This rates a return visit.
