Taxi recommended we went there. As the hotel we're staying at is next door we tried it last night. Avoid this tourist trap at all costs. I guess they do a good trade by all the tourists but clearly don't like foreigners whether you speak Italian (which I do) or not. He would be all smiles one second when serving... More

Took for ever to be served and they forgot our side dishes. Terrible white wine. As for the food, i was sick on my way home... A place to avoid!

We had been at the market in Piazza. Marina and came upon this restaurant. We had the set fish menu - excellent value - mussels first, then pasta sarde, then salad, then grilled sword fish, then fruit (orange and strawberry). It was all delicious. Our only complaint was that it was all served too quickly. With quantities like that one... More

Had a late lunch as I was flying back to UK the next morning.This is good honest Sicilian food,fresh and tasty,not complex nor did it need to be. I had a fish soup starter followed by pasta with a "scent of the sea", clams and mussels. A good white wine and a cheap bill.

Stopped off here for lunch after a long morning sight seeing. Chose the grilled large prawns (5 for 15 euros) and grilled vegetables (3 euros). Both were excellent. This was our second visit as we've not yet found anywhere better for a fish based value for money lunch. Other diners seemed to be enjoying their food too including Sicilians, always... More

The place itself is very inviting but I wouldn't be fooled. Yes they serve fresh seafood, yes it overlooks the sea (just) and yes they have an outdoor BBQ. BUT. The service is chaotic, the prices are ridiculous for what you're actually receiving (would be ok if the food was great), the portions are tiny - €15 for main course... More
