After the reviews and recommendations, a huge disappointment

Al Galu' was recommended to us by our first hosts in Sicily in Pozillo. We tried to get a table for lunch at short notice on the first Sunday of the year, but the restaurant was completely booked out, so we changed our plans and went for dinner instead.

We broke our usual rule of eating at a different place each night. The food here is amazing. the menu offers a huge choice, and the presentation is awesome. On our first visit I ordered the Whitebait Bruschetta. The fish was delicious and the bruschetta just melted in my mouth, whereas in some restaurants it is too hard. The carob... More

We arrived without reservation around 8.30 pm and were greeted by a friendly waitress. We had a sharing platter with lots of chesses, jams and a clear jelly which turned out to be mustard. It was really delicious and full of flavour. It was definitely the highlight of the visit. I went for gnocchi for main which did the job... More

We really enjoyed the food here - so we did go 3 times. The choice is up to you on how you want your fish cooked. Amazing fresh fish with amazing recipes for a very decent price. If you like fish don't think further go here!!

Dull food, decently cooked. The end of a holiday week-end and it showed. The owner's baby distracted her and the staff.

Every dish was wonderful and very creative. Row fish (the one that I prefer) was absolutely divine, but also the cooked one was very good. I recomend to choose sicilian white wines with it

We had a family dinner. Orders a mix of finger food appetizers. The seafood was not washed good full of sand,10 different things and tested very much the same dull and raw. Staff was ok , music they played more like a bus station music. All in all not a very good experience and not a lace to revisit .
