This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple we met at our hotel. It doesn't look like much for the outside but it has a covered terrace type area at the rear which has great views. The staff are the most attentive I've encountered here, and offered their input into how we might want our fish cooked etc. they... More

Excellent food, very authentic and all dishes we had were delicious. Nice atmosphere inside, open balcony at the end gives an al fresco vibe. The owner is always there and selected lovely wine for us. Well worth a visit, or in our case two!

Lovely little spot off Porta Messina. Staff is welcoming, friendly and accommodating. We didn't have reservations on a Saturday night but we were still given an excellent table. Everything on the menu is authentic and delectable!

We visited on our first night in Sicily and it was such a warm welcome. We were greeted by the owner who, coincidently had worked at the l'incontro in North Sydney! The trattoria style food was traditional Sicilian food. We shared a number of antipasto and had seafood, veal, gnocchi as mains! The staff were very friendly and helpful! Couldn't... More

We visited this restaurant due to the amazing reviews on tripadvisor and it only being up the road from our hotel. We made a booking although the restaurant was not full. We ate the raw fish platter, fennel and sausage pasta and cod in Sicilian sauce. It was all fine, service was prompt and staff friendly, just didn't have the... More
