Once we had found this restaurant after reading the reviews we ate here two nights running. On the first night there was a party of 25 eating there, the second time we were one of 5 tables occupied. Both nights the service was excellent. The lady owner as others have said speaks very good English and is happy to stop... More

This restaurant is in Mazzeo on the edge of Letojanni and should not be missed. I came upon it just walking along the seafront in the early evening. It has a very unpretentious exterior and pavement tables where you can watch the world go by, have a drink and enjoy the sunset reflected in the water. Inside has a very... More

Absolutely great. I am a picky eater and not a big fish eater, but the way they prepared the fish was amazing!! Everyone I was with was surprised that I actually ate the whole thing, including myself. And the red wine fit just right. Everything was perfect that night. The service, the atmosphere, the weather. Just a fantastic night!! They... More

The female owner can speak English fluently and the food is very good. The atmosphere was nice and near the beach! There is a nice terrace as well

Good food, good surroundings, good service, excellent English speaker. It doesn't look much from the outside, but it serves good food well. Try the mixed starter plate for a typical Sicilian dish.

Exceptional good food, served by a very friendly and helpful lady. Quiet location, a bit far away from the main part, but worth to go if you want real good homemade dishes with fresh ingredients and cooked with love!

ate here 4 times in a week early September which says something about this very authentic restaurant with bar/café with helpful staff. Well cooked food appealing to both locals and visitors, much less touristy than most and as such reasonably priced.

With a virtually unblemished 5 star rating, we made a 30 minute trip from our base near Savoca to come to this restaurant. Very few tables were filled when we arrived but 3 or 4 more turned up while we were choosing our meals. Since it was so highly rated I decided to go for an ambitious starter of a... More

An incredible location, right near the beach so the scenery is beautiful. You can sit under the awning out front and watch the waves on the beach and the people in the streets. It's a really sweet place, the owners are bilingual and are very friendly and helpful. The food is all local and fresh and cooked just perfectly. It's... More

Lina, The Chef and Josephine who serves are sisters. They are a great team and provide superior service in this lovely little town of Mazzeo which is at the end of Letojanni. They have numerous seafood antipasti and fresh fish dishes as well as meat and pasta dishes. I really think the family teamwork gives it that special touch.
