The restaurant 50/50 locals and tourists. The food and wine delicious, fresh seafood. The service leaves much to be desired as almost everywhere in Italy. Not to hike with small children. Recommend.

Once the waiter looking like a young Fernando Torres brought our drinks, we didn't see them for a while (we asked for sparkling water, got still, but it was no big deal). After finally they took our orders, we had to wait for quiet some time for our food to arrive. I think they should have asked if we'd like... More

Beautiful setting great service and lovely starter of prosciutto e melone. We ordered fillet steak in green pepper sauce: it wasn't filet possibly a thin piece of rump? 1cm thick & in various stringy bits. Tasted of nothing, tough as my shoe, & although we asked for medium rare (a punto sangue) in English & Italian it was overlooked. Proprietor... More

Attracted by TripAdvisor reviews, we searched for the restaurant on Monday night. It was difficult to find in a closed alley, and then it appeared closed (TripAdvisor said: open from 19:30-23:30...; needs correction). So we returned on Tuesday (after calling them for a reservation), a quiet night. If you are early you can easily park your car at the harbour.... More

We came to this restaurant because of the good reviews and seeing it was crowded. STAFF: not very nice - they were evidently suffering from having too many people to take care of; the would make us feel pressurised to make a swift ordering, would be totally non supportive and wince when we would order less than two dishes each....

Our first night in Sicily, and this trattoria provided an excellent introduction to genuine local food. Tasty arancini, wonderful pasta, yummy ricotta pastry.

This is short stroll from the Al Madarig hotel. It is obviously popular with locals as well as with visitors. Good quality, authentic Sicilian food. Ate our first (of many) cassatella pastries.

We had dinner here the other night and were impressed. The cozze were the best we've had yet in Sicily: fresh, tender, flavorful and cooked in a perfect broth--not too watery nor too salty. We then had a grilled red mullet which was also very fresh and well-prepared. My boyfriend loves cannoli and so is also a tough critic. Theirs... More
