One of best and most classically elegant meals during 2 weeks in Sicily! Owner was gracious and truly a food and wine connoisseur... Lovely restaurant and 5 star meal. I've eaten in some of the best restaurants in NYC and this was fantastic! Highly recommend!

When you want a real Italian meal with good antipasti, primo y secundi, you should go here! The food is of a very good quality and the hosts are really friendly and helpful.

Our b&b made a reservation here for us, and we were most grateful to her for this. The food was more expensive than we usually pay, but it was also of higher quality. The owner and staff were gracious and attentive. My meals were modified to attend to my food sensitivities and the wine was also delicious. This restaurant is... More
