across the street from the fish market, not on the main road, you will find a great sea place. although the waitress did not speak any English the good will was there big time and we felt very comfortable. great food, great service. what else one needs?

I had the seafood spagetti of my life in this restaurant. Nothing can top that. Everything was perfect from the starter to dessert. Thank you!

As long as I live, I will never forget the dinner at Cambusa. It was an absolutely magical experience. We never saw menus - just told our wonderful waiter that we loved all sorts of clams and pasta. A few moments later, the dishes started rolling out of the kitchen. Each one was better than the last. We saw shellfish... More

It's a family tradition to come here every time we're in Sicily. The seafood and the cooking is perfectly Sicilian style. Fair, fresh and generous. Quality is great and atmosphere absolutely easy going. The antipasto della Casa entails more than 10 servings and every piece is wonderful! Pasta ai Ricci di mare is just amazing! Location for sure is not... More

Just of the main commercial street, this quiet small food place makes for an great dining experience. Menu is traditional with no fireworks with dishes well executed. We had clams with tomato sauce, which had a hint of chilli,,with the semolina bread mopping it well up. . Our other plate of local fish was wonderfully cooked with the fish itself... More

I lived in Sicily for a total of 6 years. This is the freshest, sicilian seafood place we go to. Never disappointed. Clean friendly. English spoken, great view!

This was some of the best seafood I've ever had. I had the pasta frutti da mare and my girlfriend had a pasta with fresh tuna. We both thought it was amazing. She doesn't even like seafood and was about to get a plan red sauce, but I convinced her to step outside her comfort zone, and she loved it.... More

This is a tourist trap respect yourselves and go elswhere. If you like frozen seafood served by a smoking waiter this is the place for you. If you appreciate an accounting rip-off this is the place for you.

Tis was our first dinner in Sicily and so far the best ever. We came back from our Holliday on the 14th and we visited that restaurant on the 3rd of July. We are still talking about it, dreaming of a meal like it and would definitely do it again if there is a chance. The restaurant was recommended by... More
