“Excellent food at great prices!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Great traditional italian food. Service is just amazing at this restaurant. The chef actually came out and asked every table if they were enjoying their food. Truly a MUST go to eat! Manager and waiter also spot on! Will definetely go back.

“Friendly, family-run spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

A friendly little spot just beyond the south city gate. Open late, the serve solid Sicilian food: I especially liked the pizza, but the appetizer and wine (rich and fruity) was also good. Dinner was only 20 euros, a la carte. The place feels like family, with a lot of regulars, a kitchen close by, and lots of relatives making sure that everyone is taken care of.

“wonderful family owned place with outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Found them based on the previous review on Tripadvisor - thank you, mirable!
Warmly welcomed by the couple who own the place. The wife took our orders and served, the husband did the cooking. Excellent finely prepared food, nicely informal service.
The best ricotta cheese we ever tasted (was part of the appetizer platter), the rest was not far behind.
