We stayed in Mondello for 7 days and visited this restaurant three times! It's in a nice setting by the sea, great service and perfectly polished wine glasses. They have the freshest fish and the nicest salad ingredients. We were always served by Andrea who was very helpful and spoke great English. By our second visit he already knew what... More

This place is a gem. You must try it if you are in the Mondello area. Great pasta dishes with seafood and an ocean view that makes this place worth of a visit. They have menus in english. The owner was very nice to accommodate us to eat a very late lunch at a time where other restaurants' kitchens are... More

I am lucky enough to live in Mondello Sicily for work and love this restaurant. Wether sitting inside upstairs in their air conditioned room or downstairs one thing is for sure, you are guaranteed amazing fresh and top quality fish. I ate here again on Sunday for lunch and am never dissapointed. Highly reccomended

Recommended to us by the proprietor of our lodging near Licata. Good food and service. Because of the weather, we ate upstairs in the restaurant, not outside, and the view was very nice.

Imagine: you sit down and would love that tasty spaghetti and mussels dish that can only be great in a place overlooking the eye-watering gulf of Mondello... But then, a rude comment from the owner tells you that no, you can't order that dish plus some wine because "it doesn't make sense for the restaurant to give you a table... More
