This restaurant is set on the hillside a little above Marettimo port. It is not easy to find, having only one inconspicuous sign at the end of the road leading to it, but we recommend that you persevere. Any local can direct you. Reservations are essential at busy times including evening weekends. The restaurant is spacious, unlike many where the... More

Food was fantastic, wines were great, excellence in combining typical ingredients of the sicilian tradition. I wish they had couscous when I went but I ended up having an incredibly good pasta dish named "strozzapreti mille e una notte".....the tuna steak with pistacchio was also outstanding.

Strolling around the lovely village of Marettimo you will bump on many restaurant insignas, but we suggest to extend your search uphill, in the upper part of the hamlet, just to find this little pearl. Ask for a table with a view, enjoy the fantastic flavors of the traditional food and Sicily wines (warmly suggested to order a bottle, rather... More

This family takes great care not only to use the best ingredients, but to combine them in such a way that shows they care. There is a talented chef in that kitchen, and it is evident in the taste of the food. Not only is the food wonderful, but the atmosphere is romantic and relaxed - high above the town,... More

We were served by some completely not competent/ not trained boy (I cannot call him waiter) . He poured me on the light jeans the glass of wine – luckily it was white wine! Instead of apologize and clean up the table he kept explaining that he did not notice. He has not cleaned up, did not take even a... More

We have been just in this restourant during our stay in Marettimo but it is definitely our favourite. We stayed just two days and went there both times. Food was very good and people working there was very nice. The place was very crowded. We tasted both pasta and fish and they were well cooked and well presented. We will... More

Thank an advice of a bar owner (Caffè Tramontana) we went for a pizza. The place is not a top restaurant but the atmosphere, the curious cats around the tables, the quality of the pizza and the grilled tuna fish made the difference. Really fast Service and absolutely reasonable price.

Such a gorgeous terrace and the food was so good! A lovely very old building with an amazing kitchen. We were visiting the island and staying with a local named Lydia, who knows everyone on the island. We were treated like family everywhere we went. If you are going to Maretimmo, you must eat here!
