We had a dinner there and we really enjoyed it. Service was careful and friendly. We had an a memorable pasta con le sarde and one of the best vongole I ever had. Price was a positive surprise as well: entrées and pasta with some wine was about 28€.

We have eaten all over town and rate this place as definitely in the top 4. In fact one the restaurateurs of a current top 4 place chose to eat here on Ferragosto, that should be praise enough. Very friendly owner and waiters, you can eat in the street or in the air conditioned interior. The food is high spec... More

Looks very nice and local and was also very busy. But we did not like it. The staff was unorganized and despite the fact we were sitting in de middlte of the restaurant we were forgotten. No appologize at all.

Worth the visit. Book if possible as it gets very busy. Gluten-free available and great wine selection. On the more expensive end for Cefalu, but definitely worth it.

Nice traditional restaurant with traditional Sicilian dishes. A few tables outside, but is much better ( and cooler)to sit inside, in this nicely decorated restaurant. Attentive service ( not everybody speaks English) We had spaghettii with vongole, Grilled Tuna, grilled swordfish. All very well prepared. Excellent wine list with may local Sicilian wines. Real value for money, especially if you... More

We had dinner here several times during our stay in Cefalù - it was too good to not go back. The service is brilliant and the atmosphere is second to none. You will be entertained all night with the action from the street so sitting outside is a must. The food is modern yet authentic and really delicious. It is... More

We tried to book online but with no success . When we went tot he restaurants at opening time we were offered an inside table which we took. I think they are better as outside is subject to passers by including a range of agricultural vehicles. Also little or no view. Inside ended up with about six tables. Service not... More

This restaurant ticks all the boxes as long as you don't want a sea view. Situated in a surprisingly busy little alley not far from the cathedral, the service is prompt and friendly, the prices are reasonable but most importantly the food is terrific. Swordfish in a tomato sauce with capers and olives was absolutely delicious. The last of the... More
