Luckily for me I have learnt to deal with reviews on trip advisor and to discern the meaningful ones from others, completely useless. I was there during the last week of june, for dinner. And I am glad I went despite -for example- the very bad review by AndrewNOLA73. I have experienced nothing like that and I wonder whether the... More

1. Extremely overpriced 2. Pretentiously rude 3. Food is below average at best 4. Painfully slow service + a 3 Euro per person "coberto" charge for that same awful service. In their favor, they did have nice decor.

My husband loves sushi and I do not. They have limited options for non-sushi eaters, but the teriyaki chicken was good. Definitely overpriced compared to the US, but this is Sicily. Husband enjoyed his sushi, but it wasn't mind blowing or anything.

the service is very bad and extremely slow (unless you are a firend of the owner). We got our food after hours of waiting. They brought the food on a bag and wanted us to pay for it full price even if the service was a sort of "take away". Rude personell. May be this restaurant will be good for... More

I try to make it to Oxidiana once a month, best sushi in Sicily and great atmosphere. I would recommend making a reservation since it is usually busy but the service is always great. I have been going here for 2 1/2 years and not had a bad meal once!

Birthdays, wedding anniversaries, random pissed- off Tuesdays... This is where I go to celebrate. Great sushi and sashimi. Generous portions. Great atmosphere: there is always the chance and the treat that the art work has changed since your last visit. Fantastic service: Umberto rules the floor while William is a very gracious host. Love this place... I just wish I... More

Wow!!! Sushi here was fresh and presentation was unbeatable. This hip, modern atmosphere attracts all sorts of people. I felt under dressed in jeans but not too much out of place. From the outside, you would never know this place existed or was as fantastic. Get your GPS out to find this place and go with a friend. The walk... More

Ambience: Very sleek and modern appearance. The bar is situated at the front of the restaurant and you can choose to eat here if you want. Unfortunately, the sushi bar area is really disappointing. If you sit here, you can see all the plastic containers being used by the chefs, food being taken out to customers is left in front... More

Found it. William made even the best sushi experience better. The staff went out of their way to make our experience wonderful and all the other customers were smiling. Did I mention the dessert? All of this talk is about the experience, but the draw is the sushi and it was even more wonderful than the environment wherein it was... More
