Very Good

Outside Pantelleria, probably the best restourant of the island, serving with class all the local specialities both from land and sea; nice spot with also a very good seaview.

Fresh Seafood and In House Desserts, from start to finish, fresh alice fish with tomatoe base sauce, linguini pasta with scampi, oven baked red fish (catch of the day), and almond ice cream with zibibo honey, accompanied with a local Zibibo wine and aged Pasito. All served in a beautiful setting. Proprietor very courteous. Moderate prices, a definite must for... More

Wonderful address, beautiful sea views, extremely nice owners and the food...wow, fantastic! Fresh, tasty, colorful, exquisite, from starters to dessert. The "baccio pantesco" is amazing. The best restaurant, by far, in Pantelleria. A must when in the island. Absolutely recommended.

The menu was suprisingly short and lacked inspiration, just a few the standard simple pantelleria dishes. Thich came as a disappoiment for a well regarded restaurant, and for which ihad high expectations. Some of the pasta dishes were excellent, but 70% of the dishes that my large table ordered were either totally unremarquable or outright sloppyly executed. Very unfortunate in... More

We had very lovely lunch here. Especially I liked the atmosphere, the young host who served us was very helpful and spoke good English. I enjoyed the food which was simple and still very elegant. Try their homemade "grape honey" with semifreddo as a dessert. You won't be disappointed. The lunch here was unforgetable and I want to thank the... More

Restaurant is very cute and beachy looking from the outside. Hosts were quite and seemed a little young. Our waiter was very attentive. Don't get me wrong this place is solid, but it's not worth the cash you put in. I was expecting more. Yes, the sea food was fresh. Yes the food was good, but it wasn't spectacular. It... More

There was a friendly welcome even though we arrived very early by local standards (8 pm). You can watch the sun set over the sea at Punta Karace. The home made ravioli was delicious. So was the sea bass, ammoglio and capperi.
