Great atmosphere and coffee

We stopped in one evening after dinner and asked if we could sit and have coffee to listen to the guy singing and playing guitar as it sounded so lovely, which they said was fine. We went back the evening after for dinner. The food was nice but not memorable. The atmosphere was special though. It... read more

My daughter and I ate here on a cold and rainy night in early April. The eggplant parmigana was super. My daughter had clams linguini and loved it. The atmosphere was great with live music. I would go back. Prices were reasonable an of course the wine was great. Give it a try.

The sea bass was perfectly cooked and a generous sized fish. The chicken snitzel was cold sadly, but otherwise very tasty. The family owned restuarant tried hard to please their customers, and the guitar music certainly added to the atmosphere. I good everyday place to eat, without being too pricey.

It's out of season time. Couldn't find any other restaurants open around the area. I read the comments on trip advisor about this restaurant and wanted to give a shot anyway even if the ratings weren't that good. Bread was old. Spaghetti was really really raw. Service was late too. The only good thing was the cleanliness of the restroom.

Stayed nearby and visited the restaurant several times. The food is great, the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special, the location is amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for Sicily.

My wife and have just finished eating dinner here for the second time this week. Lunch and Dinner served the usual Italian way - antipasti, primo piato, secondo piato; di terra o di mare (meat or fish) and dessert. We've had a good Nero D'avola wine, a typical scicilian choice, and good - i mean strong - coffee. The fare... More

In a word, touristy. 80's pop blaring, a cat sniffing around the tables, low grade but overpriced wine, and forgettable food. My fault for being lazy at the time and not having done some homework. We were just a walk-in, but there must be a lot like us to keep this place afloat. Without a doubt the least impressive of... More
