“real hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is the coziest coffee shop in Marsala. Most creative interior, nice music, good coffee, sincere hospitality. Most visit for espresso cup or fine marsala vine. Don't forget Sicilian cap. You'll find it here too.

“Great Little Place in the Centre of Marsala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We chose this lovely place for lunch in the heart of Marsala, just off of the main square and close to one of the gates. There is seating outside. The service was good and attentive.
Since it was lunch, we ordered a few different small things to try them out. The tuna salad is excellent and greatly recommended. It had almonds in it, which was something new for me.
We also ordered arancino (stuffed rice balls with meat) - which is a Sicilian specialty - and it was fresh and delicious. The spinach pie was ok, but nothing to write home about.
My boyfriend tried the local drink - Chinotto - which is a type of carbonated soft drink produced from the juice of the fruit of the myrtle-leaved orange tree.
We didn't go inside, but they seemed to also have many wines, oils and vinegars for sale as well.

“Great little cafe with awesome service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

While staying at the B&B across the street went to this cafe several times. The service was great, the bearded guy working there was an unforgettable character!
The wine served was nice (not spectacular), but they seemed knowledgeable about local wines. Great for breakfast too.
