We stayed in San Vito Lo Capo 5 nights and we went 3 times in this restaurant. Staffs were helpful and gave us good recommendations. We had Sautéed clams within citrus as a starter. Then we had "Taglioline vongole bottarga e ricci di mare" (Pasta dish with clams, fish eggs and sea urchin). Our main course was fresh Tuna coated... More

Place - Small and cosy, romantic but with a relaxed family atmosphere. - The music was a bit boring (it was Christmas and all songs where about it, but not too cheesy at least). Food - The food it was very good, but I think I couldn't enjoy it as I might have if I asked something different. We asked... More

in my opinion. The biggest problem with restaurants in San Vito is that they don't take bookings. Therefore if you turn you pat 8/9pm in peak season, then you're going to have to queue. That said, once the queueing was done, Syrah was a joy. The best food by a country mile that we had in San Vito. Great Service... More

We went to this restaurant after reading the reviews and what a mistake that was. We were the only people in the restaurant and the service was appalling. We were made to feel firstly like we were not wanted. When we were handed the menu and ordered our drinks we had to wait ages to be given our drinks and... More

Excellent food fish/sea fruits based. The cous cous with "ricci di mare e nero di seppia" was delicious like tasting the sea. Several different couscous offerings for all tastes: you have to find the one matching your's. Friendly waiters. Booking is practically mandatory.

A friend told us that this was the best place in town. He was right. About the "was" part. We had the worst service I've seen in Italy. Even as the restaurant was starting to quiet down, it took forever to get anything. We waited 30 minutes for a bottle of wine, and we gave up and asked for the... More

During our stay (one week) in San Vito lo Capo, I've been 3 times for dinner at this restaurant, together with my husband and another couple, friends of ours. Everyone said this is the best restaurant (in fact said that the head chef is exceptional) so we insisted to get a reservation, ignoring the rude and arrogant attitude of those... More

A very nice restaurant with excellent food. The staff was very friendly and helpful, we were lucky to get a table wthout a reservation but if you want to make sure you have a table you need to book. The fish and vegetable cous cous was really tasty.

Across the board, the food is excellent. We were shocked to find the excellent wine we were drinking to be only 15 Euros! So we visited several times during our stay. With each visit we tried something new - and were never disappointed. Service may be better if you are comfortable speaking Italian, I did not notice any issues. For... More

Everyone says this place is the best in San Vito. I went here with my Sicilian boyfriend and my parents ... I went on Sunday couldn't get a table so we went back on Monday... Service was terrible. For an expensive place I expect good service.. We had to wait 40 minutes to even order... Appetizers not so bad. We... More
