You have to wonder about the critical powers of tripadvisor users when the vast majority give excellent or very good. This is an example. We went on a weekday evening in June. It was almost empty---a bad sign. Agreed it is not easy to find and involved driving carefully along the quay through narrow arches but the locals should not... More

We arrived on spec and were given a free glass of champagne while we waited for a table. There was a really wide-ranging menu and most of us had fish. I had steak - perfectly cooked. You are right next to the harbour, so there is plenty to watch while you eat.

A first floor fish restaurant situated in the heart of the fishing harbour of Sciacca. A very average decor with a view that consists of fishing boats. Not fascinating in the evening when there's no movement. The food was OK. Not great but nothing wrong with it at the same time. Service is friendly, but a bit weird. We had... More

The food was good, nothing to complain there. Also the service was OK. BUT: We ordered a bottle of Tancredi red wine, the price being 29 Euro the bottle. The chef the service came back 5 min. later with a bottle in his hand and only very briefly showed it to us. He said it is a Tancredi, but the... More

During our one week holiday near Sciacca we ate twice here and the whole family enjoyed the fresh fish dishes, and the excellent pasta courses.Sicilian food at its best and a very good choice of wines.

The kind of place which we would not have minded visiting every evening while in Sciacca. Great detail to service, presentation and ingredients.

We arrived in a torrential downpour at 6:30pm, the restaurant didn't open until 7:30, but Angelo Marsala welcomed us in, opened a bottle of Prosecco for us, and by 7:20 we were enjoying delicious calamari, followed by local fish caught that morning. Angelo even kept my rain-soaked hat safe for me, until we returned to pick it up the following... More

Food was excellent for lunch. Pappardelle with tomatoes and mushrooms with delicious sauce. Then fresh fish with asparagus and another sauce which was very tasty. Problem was we had ordered one order to be split between the two of us. We thought we had made this understood but once we saw the pasta portions we realized we had been give... More

Worth a stopover for lunch or dinner - nice views and an extensive menu for a restaurant of this size. Very personable service & good wine list which is very reasonable prized. Everything is good on the menu with healthy portions. I would hv loved to try the oysters and sashimi which looked delicious.
