Below avarage due to pricing. Avarage food compared to other restaurants in the area. I payed 40+ euro for a sad starter, mainstream pasta with overcooked prawns and undercooked pasta (no, not aldente) and a nice bottle of wine. At least I could take the winebottle to go.

We had seen this restaurant when looking around the city and when our hotel recommended it we decided to go there. I ordered the grilled tuna and it's one of the best meals I've had, ever! The service was good and the atmosphere was nice.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and we liked it! Wonderful sea food. The restaurant was very pleasant and beautiful and the staff quick and friendly. We thought it was well worth the money and recommend it highly.

Arrived at approach 14.30hrs for lunch, and asked for a table outside, this clearly did not impress the owner.

There are some great... More

Excellent restaurant. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere wonderful. A lot of locals were eating there– even though it was on a Monday evening. We were glad that we had made a reservation (we preferred to eat outside but it also looked cozy inside). They served fresh pasta. Ask for it. Be aware though that all pasta dishes are... More

Amazing decor! Really tasty food! The staff was very helpful, too. It's not really expensive, just slightly above average for Castellammare. Definitely worth visiting!

This charming restaurant ended up being one of the highlights of our trip to Sicily. It was crammed full of locals, so service was a bit on the slow side but the quality of the food more than made up for it. We had prosciutto e melone for a starter, and busiate as the primo. We went with steak instead... More

This restaurant is conveniently located just off Piazza Petrolo. There is a small outdoor courtyard area with a distant view across the piazza to the sea. Inside is quite large and tastefully decorated. Service was prompt and helpful. Food was very good. I had an excellent fritto misto of calamari, prawn and one small octopus plus a plate of grilled...
