This was one our best dinners in Sicily. The dishes were carefully prepared, well balanced flavors, with fresh ingredients. We had pasta with pesto Trapanese (sp), an incredible seafood pasta, lamb chops, and insalata caprese. All were delicious. The prices were reasonable, ambiance attractive, and the service good. My wife and I wish we could have returned to try some... More

After having a hard time finding this restaurant, it ended up to be worth the trouble. We had a delicious meal from start to finish. The best were the mussels and the pasta dishes. The ambiance is very nice too.

The hotel we stayed in suggested eating here and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. It is a quiet place to eat and has excellent air conditioning which is just what you want occasionally on holiday. The food and the service was excellent, very, very good mussels and we had a delicious bottle of prosecco. My only (hopefully... More

Looked after by Francesco who spoke great English having worked in London. This is a lovely and quite inexpensive restaurant with lovely pasta dishes and great local wines by the litre carat. Six of us had a lovely meal here tonight and were very happy with the food, wine and service. Best latte I've had yet this week also!

We were very lucky to find a restaurant open as it was Christmas Eve and quite late. We were very happy to find such a gem! Once we had tasted the Bruschetta we couldn't wait for the rest of our meal. The Lasagne was one of the best we have ever had and the Cannoli was better than Zia's (but... More

Food is good, staff are friendly and helpful (we had a time limit, since we had to meet someone at Palermo airport, and waitress was on top of this).,

The menu is reasonably priced indeed but the food is simply no good! I am not sure if they changed the chef or if the food has always been like this but i have to disagree with most of the reviews! Cannot recommend the place sorry

I was at this restaurant twice during my short first visit to Sicily - and both visits were a great experience food-wise and service-wise. Friendly owner with good English skills and very nice personnel with good humor. The food was excellent, especially the fish dishes which I personally prefers. The variety for kids also is very good. Best recommendations from... More

I'll start with the good things: very friendly owner, and an excellent pasta with almond pesto and tomato. Also good bruschetta. Unfortunately, a fairly bland pasta norma and a disappointing caponata (we had much better in the rest of our trip). Maybe i should have chosen some fish dish instead...
