Good

Good food at very reasonable prices. From the pasta to the fish you won't go wrong. Great view of the sea from the front door but unfortunately no outdoor seating. For the price, worth it.

Excellent for fresh fish and lobster. Fish and lobsters caught at Porto Palo area, fish taste is really amazing. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

My host recommended this place during my stay in Ortiga. It is located at the beautiful white sand beach. I stopped for lunch . The antipasto buffet had lots of variety but I questioned the freshness of produce and elected to go for supa de pesce(not in the menu, just ask for it). The soup was thick tomato based stock...

I expected much more from this place, reading the reviews.. Be careful, this is not a luxurious restaurant but only a rustic place, you'll feel like in the countryside! My pizza was insufficient baked, with an interesting taste. It is not a very cheap pizza. I paid two euro only for the seat that I occupied! Too much for a... More

The restaurant outside at the "port" of Avola is really nothing! But after entering the restaurant one get positively surprised. Warm welcoming atmosphere and friendly personal do their best to satisfy the guests. We were a bit early (19.00) and the kitchen was not fully open, but our waiter managed to serve a full plate with deep fried baby squid... More

No I would not return. The service was fine and efficient bit quality of food left much to be desired. The calamari were large and undercooked and served with no attention to presentation at all. The antipasti looked a little worn an the salad was shoddy. Go elsewhere.

Went to this restaurant on a Saturday night and tried to book a table - the 'host' ( I use that term lightly) was very rude - in fact ignored us and some other people who were trying to get tables. When eventually getting his attention - the restaurant obviously does take away pizzas and this was all encompassing -... More

Uhmmm several random pictures Nice old fashioned photos on the walls but salty food. But astonishingly, agony that some dishes allow extensive elbow-room to remain destructively... I mean quite literally, indefatigable inebriation... Well, it's been nicer than mcdonalds.

I was at this restaurant with my family.... - We waited HALF AN HOUR for someone to take our order - The waiters were not prepared at all - We waited so much for the food that we had to threaten we would leave if it didn't come in 5 mins - When the food came, it was badly cooked... More
