The restaurant is nice with pleasant hospitality. The food is quiet good. Nevertheless it does not worth the high prices that they charge you.

Out hunting for lunch, we stumbled across what we first thought to be a typical tourist restaurant. It turned out far from it. Delicious food, amazing staff and a nice view. There's not much to add to what already been said in previous reviews; this is a truly great restaurant and you really wouldn't want to miss it.

It was our last night at the end of a wonderful holiday in Sicily. We stumbled upon Osteria dei Marinai and grabbed the last table. We hunt for restaurants that are busy with local trade What a treat. Welcomed by the owner who spoke good English. We shared a bowl of mussels in a wonderful garlic/wine broth and a plate... More

If you like fresh fish, you've found the right place. Take the starters: ten various dishes for every taste, hot, cold, crude, everyting really very tasty. I had also their speciality: the spaghetti dell'osteria with swordfish, aubergine and salted ricotta. Very good!

After walking around Acitrezza for a few hours, we chanced upon this restaurant. That everyone on the outside deck was speaking Italian was surely a good sign. The proprietor could not have been more helpful, and recommended for us the seafood antipasto. We were presented with a plate of fresh oysters, tuna, shrimp, octopus, sardines and more. The they brought... More

Last week we were in Sicily, stayed in Acicastello, and ate twice at the Osteria, the food was really nice, the service excellent (they spoke English!), everything was tasty and the fish completely fresh; we followed the recommendation of the waiter (or was he the owner?) and were very pleased. The parfait de Pistaccio was wonderful, and not less important,... More
