Good local authentic fish grill

We enjoyed this, right on the beach, simple fish cooked authentically, good food and value with friendly service. Perfect if you find yourself in this area. We could have eaten here more often.

I don't quite get the bad reviews, not our experience the two times we visited. The food is acceptable well prepared Sicilian fare, grilled fish and meat, seafood, pizza, pasta etc, and the service was cheerful if not always so accurate or quick. Prices are ok. The key thing is the outstanding and beautiful sea side location! Put alongside the... More

I had lunch here today and it was OK. So I came back tonight and it was just dreadful. There were 8 customers and as many members of staff, but still they managed to produce the slowest service I have ever experienced in Italy. I ordered a filetto al pepe verde. When it eventually arrived it was over cooked and... More

After reading the very bad reviews on TripAdvisor, we were really sceptical, we almost didn't go there. At the end we couldn't resist the fantastic location and gave it a try -- and were not the least bit disappointed! We had two pasta dishes (aglio olio and spaghetti vongole) which were both good: spaghetti cooked perfectly, tasty sauce and really... More

Instead we got 2 glasses of wine.. In the end we were billed for two carafe's of wine! I asked how this could be possible because... More

Weve been thee end june and had a very nice evenig. Very kind staff. Good food. Good wine. Fantastic ambient with view to the close waves and the sunset. No complaints at all. Strong contrast to many other plaes in the area. Very few guests as everywhere at this time so i can not judge for servics in high season.

We've been there in may 2013. Service was nice and caretaking. We had very fresh fish, great penne arrabiata(we ordered twice!) , and best homemade tiramisu of our whole holidays! It's a perfect location for families with children - relaxed, friendly and delicious food.

The restaurant is placed in a wonderful place, giving a cozy view by the beach and the rocks that is really stunning. Unfortunately, the restaurant owners and staff don't put much effort, since this lucky situation, to make things good. Everything is super-over priced and the staff is not professional, not polite and constantly annoyed. Been there 3 times, and... More
