the best couscous ever eaten

we wanted to try some specialty of the local food. The couscous and the fish we ordered, combined with the chosen wine (from the extensive wine list) fully satisfied our desires and taste. Definitely we are going again when we will be in the area.

Visited on several occasions during our short stay. Had lunch one day with amazing pasta and fish. Glass of prosecco on arrival always a great touch. Very attentive service lovely staff, even when they are really busy. The courtyard is a lovely spot to sit in. Definitely the best restaurant for all round, service and food.

Nice to taste something other than pasta and fish. Hard to find good restaurants in San Vito! We had the typical "panelle" as a starter (good for sharing) and the fried cheese with honey. Very delicious both! Then some cous cous. Staff were really friendly. If here in the summer, then reserve a table!

We came to San Vito for the cous cous festival and enjoyed the first night on the street. However we wanted something more formal for night 2. This reataurant was perfect. Great cous cous, fresh pasta and an extensive wine list!

We went to this restaurant thanks to great reviews we found but it was not at expected level as we've been waiting long time for the service and asking 3 times for coffees without being served and with waitress suggesting us to go after having paid the bill. The food was ok with fish cous cous and entries but the... More

The restaurant is nice. Good atmosphere, and great garden. The food and the service are poor. We ordered cous-cous: the plates are copious but the quality is not good (mine it was even cold). Good "panelle" by the way but they do not worth the 6 euros!

We came here to try the Cous Cous and were not disappointed. We tried almost versions and they were all tasty. Service was good despite the crowd. Excellent desserts too. You do get the feeling of a "factory"... they are doing everything they can to fit more and more tables - probably one too many, resulting in a vibrant but... More

Our experience was really good. It's a very popular place, with dinner served in two rounds, as far as I can tell, which may be annoying for some, and a reservation is necessary. The appetizers were delicious and couscous, their speciality, was also very good - we tasted three different types. Recommended.

Unfortunately this restaurant's reputation exceeds what it delivers. Perhaps it was better in the past. Now you have to book a table a day in advance and the service is production line style. My dish was the worst tried here in San Vito Lo Capo. Not recommended.
