“Magnificent restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant by chance. It is located on the way to the valley of the temples. A very touristic area that made us be suspicious in the beginning.
However, we found out it to be one of the best restaurants we tried during out trip. Service, food, and wine was delicious. The place was beautifully decorated and it was totally worth the money.
Definitely a "must" in Agrigento.

“Food even better than the view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

And the view is spectacular. Zucchini with mint, orange salad, and one of our top pastas of the whole trip: anchovy juice ("colatura dei alici") and tomatoes... Sounded like a risk, but we took it and it paid off in spades. Also - they have a parking lot!!

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We were lucky to find a table inside without reservation. The food was excellent as well as the wine. The prosecco was OK but too expensive for the disappointing quantity in the glass.
The interior is classy and very cosy. Good service as well.

“A smooth evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Called at the restaurant without booking and were offered a private table on the balcony! Waiters were very jolly and helpful. Mussels for starters were slightly flat but the bluefish was excellent. Main courses included chicken and wild boar, everyone was happy although not ecstatic. View from restaurant must be the best around opposite the valley of the temples!
