We went here with a large group for a business dinner. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was beautiful. The food was good, but not amazing for the price point. Overall I think there is better value for your money available.

Arrived looking for a table for 3. Apparently all the beach view tables were reserved despite them remaining empty for the whole time we ate. Didn't have any bottle of red wine we wanted from the menu but managed to find one, just happened to be the most expensive on the menu. Food service was slow, although the Italian family... More

It's one of the worst restaurants we’ve been to in general and a disgrace to Italian and Sicilian cuisine and hospitality in particular. The only good point about this place is its location – right next to a lovely beach with great sea views. It stops there though, as everything else is negative. Service was so slow that it was...

Service zero and slow. Quality very below price level . A clear abuse of the nice sea-side location.

I don't quite get the bad reviews, not our experience the two times we visited. The food is acceptable well prepared Sicilian fare, grilled fish and meat, seafood, pizza, pasta etc, and the service was cheerful if not always so accurate or quick. Prices are ok. The key thing is the outstanding and beautiful sea side location! Put alongside the... More

I had lunch here today and it was OK. So I came back tonight and it was just dreadful. There were 8 customers and as many members of staff, but still they managed to produce the slowest service I have ever experienced in Italy. I ordered a filetto al pepe verde. When it eventually arrived it was over cooked and... More

After reading the very bad reviews on TripAdvisor, we were really sceptical, we almost didn't go there. At the end we couldn't resist the fantastic location and gave it a try -- and were not the least bit disappointed! We had two pasta dishes (aglio olio and spaghetti vongole) which were both good: spaghetti cooked perfectly, tasty sauce and really... More

Instead we got 2 glasses of wine.. In the end we were billed for two carafe's of wine! I asked how this could be possible because... More
