Spectacular view!

The restaurant offers a breathtaking view on the strait of Messina. The staff is very kind and helpful, the food (fish, of course!) is good, although not exceptional. Considering the location, prices are not too expensive either. Very romantic atmosphere at night. Perfect for couples and special... read more

What a wonderful restaurant in this quaint town! Beautiful setting outside on the water. Extremely friendly staff and excellent food (especially seafood) and wine. We celebrated a friends birthday and they brought him cake with a candle and grappa on the house! Truly a wonderful evening. A must visit when you are in Scilla!

This is the place to be in the heart of Chianalea. Food is fantastic. People very friendly. You can eat (as everywhere in Scilla) great fresh caught sword fish and fresh fish Antipasti. We loved it!

Chose this restaurant as it was on the seafront and looked interesting. No problem with our Golden Retriever being allowed in the restaurant (we have a French attitude to dogs in restos) although I think the waiter may have been a little scared of dogs. There were no prices on the menu so we were expecting a surprise with the... More

I'v been there with my wife twice during the 4 days we have been in Scilla. The service was smooth and perfect and the food was always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is ideal for a romantic dinner. I really recomand the pasta with fresh sword fish.

Situated in the fishing village below Ruffo Castle, in Scilla, Bleu de Toi is a cozy restaurant right on the sea, the dining area accessed down stairs below the ktichen (if there was outdoor seating it was not offered in early November!). The room has windows overlooking the sea but is quite small so not many tables get a good... More

Great views, simple but fresh honest food and an ambiance delivered by being very popular with locals more than it seemed tourists.

I enjoyed the food, but the service was slow. We sat on the deck which was uncomfortably hot. The restaurant had much difficulty with they phone line all week and could only accept cash as payment. We found this out only when we tried to pay our bill.
