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.

This IS the best restaurant in Pantelleria, food which brings out the Pantescan flavors and local cuisine Excellent service the cassata is one of the best I have ever tasted and I have eaten lots of them. Quite an expert on Sicilian cakes. A place to go back to

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.

We travelled around the island of Pantelleria in the month of May/June 2014. One afternoon we were looking for somewhere to have lunch. Nothing to se.... but suddenly a sign! Osteria Il Principe e Il Pirata! But was the restaurant open? A very steep road down!? Nothing to see... But there it was. With a magnificent view of the ocean.... More
