Excellent mix of French and Italian

Had an excellent meal here with superb wine too. The food is superb and the atmosphere is great, very busy but organised. Seating outside is great. Well worth a visit if you can get in.

This restaurant offers a nice, laid back ambience. Good wine list and some innovative cooking. It could have been good if they had paid more attention to keeping the fish fresh! The tuna was well prepared but it was off which spoiled the dish. The duck was littered with sesame seeds which didn't add to the taste but created a... More

After enjoying so many Good Italian eating places, we had a very good dinner at this French place. Even though it's not authentic French but the dishes came out great. The red Sicilian Merlot wine turned out to be outstanding.

I still remember what a lovely meal we had here. It's all about great pasta. The food is delicious and the service friendly but also it's just a really well-managed restaurant. The staff actully knows what the guest exactly want

Even if it is more than two years since I visited this bistro, it is still worth writing about it. Excellent food, very good wines and a most welcoming guest. We went there for the New Years dinner and it was definitely one to remember.

The name of the place drew us in, but the food was exceptional. It was an interesting mix of French and Sicilian. Anything would be good there - but most memorable for me were the spring roll appetizer and the cannoli desert.

This one's a bit further from the big tourist sites but easy to find. The profiteroles were great as were the mussels. The restaurant isn't as busy at 8 pm but really fills up about 10 pm.

That was the first hamburger I'd seen on the menu winced I'd arrived in Sicily nearly a week before. It was great - needed to eat it with... More
