Great group dinners

In both 2014 and 2015, my co-director and I took a tour group to this restaurant for a group meal (13 people in 2014, 18 in 2015). Both times we enjoyed fantastic seafood and outstanding service. We'll go there again the next time we take a group to Sicily. The atmosphere is pleasant enough, but... read more

I was in Sicily visiting my boyfriend and he took me to this place on my birthday to have a delicious dinner. We shared the fried seafood platter and then for my main meal I had the seafood risotto -- it was AMAZING!!! The ambiance is very cozy and welcoming. The service was great. And the food tasted incredible. I... More

It tastes good but the clams wasn't fresh. I was sick all night. Careful to food poisoning. The worst restaurant I went after two weeks in Sicilia.

Six of us recently dropped in unannounced at or about 8pm. Our travel agent had listed the restaurant as one of a handful to try. The restaurant was fairly empty and we we received a warm welcome. Within the hour there were no tables available and persons were observed being denied seating. Tasty food with an assortment of whole fresh... More

This was the restaurant our hotel recommended and also made the booking as they said it is better to have - and they were right. L'Osteria is specialized for fish and seafood so we took the 6-course menu for 35€ per serson. We had a similar menu in another city so our expectations were not that high. However when the... More

Well, this restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide, so we stopped one evening and it took us at least 45 minutes to obtain our appetizers, I think we were forgotten by the waiter. So needless to say the bloom was off the rose at this point. I had a fish meal that was just OK, have had... More

We had a really bad experience here - hopefully an aberration. It took forever to place our order and forever for the starter to arrive. Then the main came on top of the starter. Fish and seafood pasta was average with the price very high compared to other meals. We had stopped here because we saw the restaurant was crowded... More

An incredibly warm welcome, friendly but not overbearing service, excellent fresh food and a cool and comfortable setting. The prices are very affordable and the selection authentic.

We had the most delicious dinner....Seafood antipasto, tuna with peppers (to die for) and the most unusual yet scrumptious salad of oranges, fennel and chile! Great chef! Great waiters! Charming atmosphere! I can't wait to go back!
