I lived in Sicily for a total of 6 years. This is the freshest, sicilian seafood place we go to. Never disappointed. Clean friendly. English spoken, great view!

This was some of the best seafood I've ever had. I had the pasta frutti da mare and my girlfriend had a pasta with fresh tuna. We both thought it was amazing. She doesn't even like seafood and was about to get a plan red sauce, but I convinced her to step outside her comfort zone, and she loved it.... More

This is a tourist trap respect yourselves and go elswhere. If you like frozen seafood served by a smoking waiter this is the place for you. If you appreciate an accounting rip-off this is the place for you.

Tis was our first dinner in Sicily and so far the best ever. We came back from our Holliday on the 14th and we visited that restaurant on the 3rd of July. We are still talking about it, dreaming of a meal like it and would definitely do it again if there is a chance. The restaurant was recommended by... More

Went on a Sunday afternoon with friends and found the staff to be very friendly (more on this later) and attentive to our needs. Of course fresh bread was provided and the calabrese we ordered was very flavorful. I ordered spaghetti with olive oil, garlic (lots!) and peppercino and was not disappointed. To cap it off, I ordered Spada (swordfish)... More

We came here following TA reviews. The staff was not too cordial, as we arrived at 2-30 p.m, it looked like they would like to get rid of everybody a.s.a.p (before 3 p.m). Although there were 3 tables occupied outside, the waiters cleared nearby tables and turned over chairs, looked not very friendly. We were seating inside, ordered antipasto al... More

The greatest little fish restaurant I have ever been to, no exaggeration. The antipasti are incredibly good, particularly a salad of oranges and spring onions (yes, I agree it sounds strange) and small mussles called totelli.

A great restaurant with friendly staff. A lovely view from your table. Meals are reasonably priced and have a home cooked taste. Highly recommended.
