It's fine but a little overpriced.

The food was fine, although the tuna I ordered was overcooked. For the price I was paying I would expect it to be cooked properly. Service and wine, however, was great.

Seafront restaurant. Modern and elegant design, extremely courteous, kind and warm wait staff. The chef/owner even comes out to check on the patrons. The seafood was to die for and the sicilian white wine from Corleone even moreso! Delicious!! And Francesco the waiter was the best! Accusì bonu chi stuiddi!!

We had a lovely meal here on 17 sep 2014 for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We pushed the boat out a long long way with lobster and a great deal of wine. Those that did not have the lobster raved about the small fish dish. Not cheap but very nice

We had our best dinner at this restaurant. Amazing lobster pasta, and sea bass cooked in salt to perfection.

Awesome dinner but we went there on Saturday night calling just half an hour before the arrival and we were informed by the owner that we had to wait because the restaurant was fully booked... And we've been lucky to eat such a good fish! Try the fabulous 'antipasto misto', 15 different taste of fish starters, and the 'grigliata mista'...... More

After reading a few reviews, we found this place and decided to give it a shot. Well we really enjoyed the food. The service is somewhat fast and they do have a good selection of wine. That said I would suggest this place to family and friends. Bon appetit !

The food here was good. The service really only average though. Our large group included a bunch of kids and it was obvious to us that we were not their preferred clientele. The view and location was good as well.

We had high expectations of the food in Italy/Sicily but we had bad luck I guess. Il Patio was great though. Fresh food, great taste, nice terras and friendly waiters.
