Fast and authentic food

We were recommended this place by locals who worked at a bar we frequented, and arrived just in time to get one of the last outdoor tables available (charmingly placed along a house wall in a narrow street). We ordered a bottle of prosecco and some starters, bruschette with tomato and bresaola... read more

Probably the worst service I have experienced at a restaurant, followed by a compulsory 20% (TWENTY PER CENT) service charge on the whole bill. The waiter was rude, dumping plates of food in front of us without a word, and all this despite the fact the main courses arrived 10-15 minutes apart from one another. A tourist trap and a... More

We enjoyed this place. We came for the pizza (recommended by our hotel) and were not disappointed. It was here we learned that french fries are a (popular) topping for pizza or an antipasti for Italians! The place is buzzing and a crazy, loud, scene but we loved the whole local ambiance - big families, couples, groups - all having... More

Rude, off hand, bad food, bad value. Half way through the meal we walked out. Not something we have a habit of doing. Only 2 meals arrived, no cutlery, then the waiter brought one random meal we had not ordered, but not the fourth. But still no cutlery. Failed to deliver all the starters we ordered. Did not ask how... More

A pleasant restaurant located in a narrow street off via Roma. You can dine inside or at small tables in this attractive little street. We sat outside and were very comfortable. The service was excellent and the head waiter spoke English very well. The food was good without being exceptional and the prices were sensible, so our dinner was good... More

Food is fine, not bad, not great. I had penne Arabiata and my wife had the steak, which was very thin, but ok, with fries. We shared a tomato salad, with excellent tomatoes and a small bottle of wine. However, at the end of the bill they tack on a 20 % service fee. Preposterous in Sicily! I will not... More

Today, my husband and I ordered lunch: a €7 pizza, €3 mixed salad, €4 vino, €2 water. We were charged a €1,50 per person coperto, and a 20% service charge. These charges are more than 40% of our food bill. I was always under the impression the service chg. is optional not mandatory, and depends on the quality of service... More

The food here is very good indeed but any dining experience is spoiled by the frenetic atmosphere. One has the distinct feeling that from the moment one is seated the priority of the staff is to get you out of the place as quickly as possible. This is a great shame as the four courses my wife and I enjoyed... More
