Amazing fresh fish but look the menu before to enter

This is the best restaurant where to eat fresh fish and seafood, everything on the menu is perfect and amazing tastly. But look at the prices before to enter, with the wine you never spend here less than 50 euro. Im not say that the food doesnt deserve that price, but there you pay for the high... read more

Pros: Place is nice and cozy Cons: Eaten tuna and a local fish "a la brace" and a fritto misto. The tuna was pretty sad and did not taste any good. The rest was quite poor. The bill came at 80 euros, which is ludicrous for such a basic place, in a location - Brucoli - which is not exactly... More

There is indoor and outside seating, unfortunately for me it was raining so I stopped in. The menu is large and based around fish. I'd recommend the squid in black ink! It's great for family, couples or friends. The atmosphere is very relaxed and staff helpful with good English. They do add salt to their starters so ask to have... More

Having spent a couple of week in the area, we ate at Rizzari twice and each time the food was amazing. The appetizers of marinated shrimps, bruschetta with fresh sea urchins is fantastic as is the tarter of tuna. But what was out of the world was the hugh Dotto and sea bass which cut in tranches of 350 grams... More

Very nice food, even though a bit expensive, but fresh products and well prepared. Service was OK, small menu which allows them to serve everything fresh. In the area, you should go, not necessary to go out of your way

This place was suggested to us by a friend, drove more then one hour but was worth it. A must try if you are in search for a great meal Sicilian style. The place looks messy at first, but the casual and attentive service will make you comfortable in no time. We had to much food to list, just go... More

Superb raw fish antipasti, very yummy fish main dishes. Unfortunately the choice for non fish fans was very limited but want they offered was very good. The staff was nice and the cook really good fun! Very unique atmosphere.

We found this lovely little trattoria at the end of two weeks in Sicily which is just as well as we probably would have come here every other day. As it was we ate here twice and both times it was lovely. We shared a huge bowl of mussels, clams and shrimp to start on both occasions and it was... More

I love this place for lunch sitting out on the terrace. Although I only live a few kms away, albeit in a city, when I come here I feel on holiday. I love the closeness of the sea with its colors, its pungent smell and the sound of the sea lapping against the rocks. I also feel comfortable in the... More

It is a fishermen's village, the houses are painted with some artistic flare The restaurant is run by a family and the food is delicious and the dessert divine
