Lovely outdoor meal

Had dinner here in early July. Staff couldn't have been nicer! Food included tuna, fresh local fish and pizzas. All delicious. Lovely setting in a cute piazza. Would go back!

Good pasta but poor main courses. We ate dinner four times here, as it was part of a package. Plenty of other restaurants closeby, which we would have preferred to try. Poor presentation of main courses, pork and lettuce, swordfish and lettuce, no other trimmings. Fruit dessert half a nectarine thinly sliced and spread out. If you do eat here,... More

We had dinner here two times during our stay in Castellammare. Both times we had great food, and were served by friendly and informal people. We especially recommend their tuna steaks and sea food in general.

Prices are very ok, food is delicious, and our lovely host did everything to make us come back the day after. We equally enjoyed pasta, pizza and seafood. You won't regret anything you try, but local... More

A lovely evening for the four of us, my wife and I and 2 teenagers. The staff catered for the teenage taste for pizza e patatine while we enjoyed a lovely meal. My highlight was zuppe di cozze, the most generous bowl of mussels in a salsa piccante! We also enjoyed mixed seafood and sea bass with mixed grilled vegetables... More

Wonderful mussels, best pizza we had in Sicily, the red wine of the house was superb, the location is cozy, no other tourists while we were there, our lovely host Silvana chose great desserts... all for a surprisingly low cost!
