Order the fish

We ate in their upstairs (restaurant) area. My fish was very good- it was in a delicious sauce, while my husband's rolled meat was ok. We had an early morning so didn't order dessert. Over all a pleasant experience.

Definitely the best place to eat in Milazzo. The food was fresh and delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant and the staff was wonderful. If you ever find yourself in Milazzo and want to eat at a nice restaurant, sit upstairs at Il Covo Del Pirata you will not be disappointed.

We stopped in for dinner and were completely blown away. Fish that was as fresh as can be, pasta cooked to perfection and great service. I'm still dreaming about the swordfish ravioli, Complimenti!

This restaurant used to be one of my favorite places to go when I Milazzo. The two story place with the Pizeria on the bottom and the restaurant on the second floor has always been a sinonim of good service and excellent food. Since we arrived in Milazzo we were looking forward to go there and yesterday evening finally we... More

We wandered into this hotel, and were very pleased with the ambiance, food and service. The pizzeria seemed popular and filled up as we ate.

This was our first stop for dinner when we arrived in Milazzo. I chose veal steaks - so delicate and sumptous and my boyf opted for Pasta with seafood = divine! Lovely service and staff and quite an original setting. We sat downstairs since we were looking for a casual place to eat after arriviing earlier that day by motorcycle.

This restaurant serves pizza and such on the first level but the second floor has a great view at night when the energy plant and refinery are somewhat obscured. They serve a platter of meats, not on the menu, in case you are tired of all the pizza, pasta and local seafood. One of the nicer restaurants in Milazzo though... More
