It was a beautiful experience having lunch at this restaurant. Food was very tasteful and fresh. Seafood was exceptional together with a good combination of wine proposed by the staff.

The Ferraras are certainly not new to welcoming guests to lunch or dinner and it surely shows from their warm approach, even towards total strangers who eventually emerge out of the restaurant as if they were visiting long life friends! And this is the passionate calling of Giada and her sister who treat guests as if they were close family.... More

Fish does not get any better than at Sakalleo. Whether it's raw or cooked, fried or grilled, pasta or polpette, it's always simple and always delicious. Service great too. Price a little steep at €55 a head not including wine, but how often do you eat at literally the best fish restaurant in the world?

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
