The restaurant is in an interesting location and has a nice ambience. The staff were friendly and helpful. Even though they didn't have any vegetarian choices they cooked something very nice for me and my partner said her fish dish was delicious. Had the nicest mozzarella / tomato salad I have had for a long time.

We spent $38 for a grilled fish here, that in Ortigia cost $10. Not worth the high price! We will not be back and will not recommend. Other dishes were good, but way overpriced too. Best restaurant we enjoyed, at very reasonable prices, was Caffe Sicilia on Corso Garibaldi 9/11. Fantastic ravioli and other Sicilian dishes were great!

Today we were in Scicli and happened across this place. Our lunch was simply wonderful. Perhaps a little pricier than some other places but well worth it considering the food, Service and atmosphere. Sickly is the quintessential Sicilian baroque town, very charming and spotlessly clean. I certainly hope we can come back here sometime again.

Missed this on the previous visits to Scicli, but it really is one of the best. Excellent service and a really different take on fish, without being overly fussy and gimmicky. We shared a delicious and ample starter. I had chosen Salt cod stew with Fava Bean puree. It was so delicate and really tasty, and the fish skewers which... More

We had a lovely meal here, pasta and swordfish both excellent. Sitting on a terrace on different levels it has a great atmosphere. There was some rather dubious folk music the night we were there which was a bit intrusive.

Visited in April perhaps before the tourist season took off, so we were the only diners. The inside decor is quite modern and had there been more people dining would probably have been a good atmosphere. Nice muted jazzy backgound music.The outside did not look that inviting, but it was cold in the evening, so may be different in the... More

We were staying in Scicli and ate twice in this delightful little restaurant, first as a couple for lunch and then a few days later as a group of five for dinner. Being so small, it is essential to book for the evening or any larger party even for lunch as they have very few large tables. It is certainly... More

The setting is amazing, the Baroquan Palazzo Beneventano is spectacular and the restaurant is right behind it, friendly and young service make the atmosphere really informal. Sicilian fish at its best, we tried several recipes, loved them all tuna, risotto pasta with clams, if you don't love fish though maybe not the right choice.
