We visited Puntasecca to see Montalabano's house and found this restaurant by chance. Our welcome was friendly and the food was superb. Very fresh and very different from the usual Italian cuisine. The first floor terrace is a lovely spot to eat with great views. Our lunch here made our day perfect.

This is a fantastic and contemporary seafood restaurant located along the beachfront. We visited this restaurant several times during our visit to Sicily and could not get enough of the hospitality, food and view. The menu is well-balanced between marinated and cooked fresh, local and inspired seafood dishes. This is complemented with a range of local wines (and there is... More

We had THE perfect meal in Sand Design. We visited well before the start of the season, so we were alone in the restaurant (probably all night). Yet, food quality and presentation were simply perfect. The seafood starter was very well seasoned and rather refreshing after a long day of sightseeing. We had a swordfish and stuffed calamari for main... More

What can I say but WOW - this ranks as one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten. Danilo and his team run a top notch restaurant and produce dishes which not only satisfy ones hunger but also work tricks on one's palate. I would really recommend that when you go there you let Danilo guide you through the... More

Fabulous food, beautifully presented, and outstanding service - bravo! We had dinner here twice, and each time were delighted with all aspects of our meal. Hope to be back!

Arrived here on a dark October night to be warmly welcomed into upstairs dining room overlooking the sea. Danilo could not be have been more helpful; especially recommending dishes to my non fish eating husband and suggesting a bottle of his own 2007 wine to accompany the meal. Food and service were faultless-we will go back.

One of my best pasta's ever. I had ravioli with swordfish, orange, sale and seasalt. Great taste, great dish, very nice service but quite expensive compared to other restaurants here. However, its still absolutely value for money!

Came here with family on a Sunday afternoon, very nice weather so we enjoyed our lunch outside. Our request to have spaghetti alio e olio for the 3 younghest was no problem. My insalata di polpo as a starter was the best I ever had and it is my favorite dish. As a main course i had the daily special... More
