As there has been so much written about this wonderful place, here are a couple of helpful hints: 1) Get reservations - The place is low key, but it is known and fills up fast 2) Trust Jade - Wonderful owner-host who will explain to you the 100+ year history, food prep and dish procession 3) Pace yourself - The...

A first floor dining room, without lovely sea views, but a pretty interior and very buzzy atmosphere. A lot of fun, fresh fish in abundance, you don't get much choice (or so it seemed - they simply brought us dish after dish), but there's masses to eat if you want too. Very reasonably prices, engaging people, definitely not "haute cuisine",... More

Had the primI and secondi. This is seafood restaurant without menus. The spaghetti was delicious The secondo was okay not exceptional. More explanations at start would be useful

5 courses of beautiful fresh fish plus a desert all for 50 euro. The wine suggested was very nice and only cost 10 euro a bottle. I will return if I am in the area.

I have always been wary of 'degustations'; at Sakalleo I was pleasantly surprised. I cannot comment about the pasta, etc, because the four of us stopped just before the pasta, but the fare we were given was absolutely perfect. A very enjoyable evening looked after by very friendly and professional staff.

We were told about this restaurant by some friends and the 90 minute drive to get to Scoglitti was def worth it. The restaurant is far from being stunning but the food is absolutely amazing. We were not presented with a menu but we had been told about the concept, quite simple - you eat the degustation dishes that are... More

As with many restaurants in Scoglitti there is no menu and a taster menu is provided with wonderfully fresh fish. We went to this restaurant after 3 days of taster menus and thought we were a little 'fished' out. How wrong we were, this was an exceptional meal with exceptional service. I am a Celiac and they not only understood... More
