Don't be put off by the unasuming exterior. Though small inside the food and service is far from this. Cheap, excellent food and wine. Loved it that much we booked for later in the week and was not disappointed.

Very friendly staff, English not their strong point, but menus available in English so no problem. My wife loved the sea food so much we went back the following night. Close to the Hotel Royal. Great value highly recommended!

Less than 300 yards down Via San Vito from the equally excellent Liberty Hotel lies this unassuming Trattoria. Arriving late on a Friday evening and speaking no Italian whatsoever, I was a little apprehensive as what to expect - I needn't have worried. I was taken through the menu and encouraged to select from the set 10 / 15 euro,... More

The food was awesome and the setting very Sicilian. This is a local restaurant. We were the only English speaking customers. Had a variety of food from pastas to seafood. Great family that runs the place. We went twice and weren't disappointed.

We went there because of the good reviews and were not disoppointed. We both choose the meat menu, both took pasta for primo and I took chicken and my husband veal as secondo. Pasta and chicken were good but veal anything special. But what can you expect for a dinner by 10€ with wine. There are just about 8 tables... More

We went here on a Friday night, and when we arrived it was pretty quiet, but soon filled up. It might be worth booking a table in advance, as it's not a very big place. There is a standard menu with various antipasto/primo/secondo options, or two fixed menus: the meat menu for 10 euros or the fish menu for 15... More

Excellent restaurant serving delicious freshly cooked food from a varied a la carte menu as well as an amazing value two course fish set meal for 15 Euros pp including cover, water and wine. We enjoyed the place so much we went three times during our one week stay. Location handy for Piazza Stesicoro.

Wonderful home cooked food, selection of pasta, pizza, great and big salads and of course fish. Inexpensive - pizza around €7-8, pasta €7-10, salads €6-9 and 0,5l of house wine €4-6. Good service and pleasant taverna/trattoria style environment. Good location, especially if you stay in Casa Barbero B&B in via Caronda.
