Dinner for 4 of us was 110 euros no wine or desserts. Service was good and there were some different things on the menu which when sampled were good. Would I go back ? Yes, but it has not made me think I can't wait to eat there again.

First off we didn't eat here. So this review is based on a couple taking a leisurely and slow walk back to their Hotel and just stumbling across an interesting looking place. We had just come back from a lovely dinner at Diadema, not too far away. We had also been given free shots after our dinner so were light... More

Good standard of food, good value for money and nice décor, but even though we dined at peak time on a Saturday night, it wasn't particularly busy and the clientele were mainly couples so the atmosphere was very quiet. One of the better restaurants in this area, however, and definitely worth a visit.

The restaurant looks nice, and the staff were fairly attentive and pleasant, with the exception of the manager who seemed to prefer attending to the local guests. If you are to go here you'd need a big wallet or a small appetite as portions are horrendously tiny, although a plentiful supply of bread was provided, dessert was nice however I... More

I'm used to go to Monte Caruso irregularly but not less than once a year approximately. In general its offer and the milieu have been satisfying to me and to my friends. But the last time I had a strong, bothering impression of déjà-vu. Always the same menu, in winter and in summer, always the same obsessing presence of meat,... More

the pasta is splendid and the desserts as well! It is the best choice to eat near termini. The only inconvenience is that the place is too hot in the summer.
