Had a great Sicilian meal here. Bountiful buffet of creative appetizers to start, a steal at 8 euro. The calamarata with shrimps and pistachio was excellent and so were the spaghetti with red mullet. We received excellent advice on local white wines by the glass, and a glass of wine was actually a glass of wine: a beautiful stemware filled... More

This restaurant was only open for dinner when I went but was worth the wait. I showed up without reservations and had to wait 30 min but they accommodated me. The buffet antipasto bar is plentiful but not all that tasty - I'd try something else next time. The cooked dishes were very tasty as was the dessert. Excellent wine... More

What a little classy place. Amazing modern fresh Sicilian food. The best place to eat in Marsala. You have to book in advance. This can be done through your hotel but is well worth it. An amazing meal. It is a must to go to you will be in a food heaven. I can't wait togo again. Miss it at... More

Modern but unpretentious. Gracious and helpful service. And the food is beautiful to look at and really delish. Fresh ingredients carefully handled. A lovely and generous, atypical antipasto bar makes a perfect starter followed by pastas, a choice of freshly prepared fish, or various veal dishes. The deserts passing by looked great, but we were way beyond even thinking about... More

Third review in 3 years. Still coming back for this lovely city and for this restauranf as well. Food continues to be of an extreme outstanding quality. Great atmosphere and very hip but warm interior. It has become a little bit more expensive but still worth every penny. Keep up the good work SLo!

This stylish restaurant offers an amazing antipasti buffet which included traditional favourites as well as some we had not seen elsewhere, like little stuffed artichoke quarters, broccoli fritters and cheese coated in pistachio. We continued with greengrocer pasta and swordfish involtini together with excellent house wine and were given a complimentary marsala and biscuits to finish. Definitely worth a visit.

In our two week trip to Sicily, this was the one of the few restaurants that you absolutely needed a reservation at (definitely the off season here!). We were lucky enough to grab one of the last free tables of two! The seafood is insanely fresh. The cuttlefish on ice were still moving and you could tell that fish was... More

Busy wine bar / restaurant in the centre of Marsala, probably very trendy nowadays, you'd better book if you want to dine there. Lovely antipasti buffet with plenty of choice although you won't find anything extraordinary. Same goes for the main courses, where we had the impression that their fresh fish was being served raw while the one they cooked... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by the receptionist at our hotel who managed to book the last table that night. The buffet antipasta is fantastic. There must be at least 15 dishes to choose from, all of them beautifully prepared and presented. Excellent wine at a reasonable price. When we arrived the restaurant was empty but filled up in...

Had a very good meal here on our first night in Marsala. Sat by the window in the main part of the restaurant with a fabulous view of the illuminated square. The food was delicious - particularly good anti pasti table - staff most helpful and all in all a really good evening.
