Very traditional restaurant full of locals. We had a job to find it because the sign is very tiny. They didn't speak English and there was no menu so we so we used sign language and just let them bring whatever. It was lovely . course after course of different fish. It was a great atmosphere and a great experience.

Be prepared to eat lots of excellent fish! No menu, they just start bringing the antipasti (I counted at least 8) at which point you wish you had an extra stomach for the GREAT pasta...very fast and efficient service. We drank a local prosecco...cheers!

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by a Sicilian friend that I trust. So on our first day in Scoglitti, we ventured for lunch without being too "hungry". The restaurant is located on the first floor of an anonymous road, you need to look for it. Typical avarage/classy mid-range fish restaurant at the eye. As most italian restaurant, there... More

Only thing I can complain about is families with kids on a Friday night in this type of restaurant. Otherwise the food is superb... it's imperative that you like sea food. If you're New to sea food this is the place to experience the best of it.... great stuff

We came as a group of 6 from Modica & took our seats for the antipasti of seafood promised to be 14- luckily fewer; allowing us to share one pasta to try it out. Choosing a wine was our only task; then to sit back & mangia!! The crudo seafood platter of scampi gamberetti spada hapuka was a highlight with... More

What a great place! But I made the mistake of not reading the reviews before going, so we were a little surprised by the lack of menu. It would be better, I think, for the restaurant to provide information about the choices of tasting options and the price for each. (We felt too embarrassed to ask about price and weren't... More

If fish is not your thing, then this place is not for you, but if it is, then this restaurant is a revelation of magnificent fresh fish served simply leaving the ingredients to shout. It is on the first floor with a very unassuming entrance. We were greeted very warmly and handed over to Gloria, who looked after us for... More

Delivers what's promised. Excellent fish in every aspect. Fantasy,selection,preparation. Everything is great here. To be in Sicily again a bit on the expensive side. But definitely worth a detour in in the area

I do not have words to describe this restaurant. Everything works as one desires. I would love to visit it as many times as to go thru the whole menu. Just visit it. Great job !!! Excellent location, great staff, highly neat.
